Innovation, research and high-tech bridge
Residing at a strategic position, close to the University of Patras, with a panoramic view to the Rio-Antirio Bridge, the π1-innohub was inaugurated in 2011 and successfully operates as a "bridge" connecting innnovation, research and high-technology.
The π1-innohub contributes to the accelateration of development of innovative firms in Western Greece. It dedicates its resources primarily to start-up and early-stage companies; however, small & medium companies and corporates may also find a cost-effective place to setup their branch offices in order to get access to Western Greece markets and the local talent pool.
It is located in the outskirts of Patras, the third largest urban area of Greece, 215 km west of Athens, on the NW shore of Peloponnese. Considered as a gate to the West, Patras is a commercial hub, while its busy port is a nodal point for trade and communication with Italy and the rest of Western Europe. It overlooks the Gulf of Patras from the foothills of mount Panachaikon, close to the Patras University Campus and 3 km. from the crossroad of the Athens-Patras National Road (Greek National Road 8) and the world's longest multi-span cable-stayed bridge of Rio-Antirio.
Housed in modern facilities occupying 2,400 m², adjacent to a 10,000 m² logistics center with a 100-car parking lot for the employees and visitors, it offers fully-equipped offices and meeting rooms, able to host workgroups from 10 to 70 persons, with videoconferencing facilities for presentations addressed to a local or a distant audience.
The spirit of interaction and fellowship dominate the InnoCafé as well, which constitutes a separate location in the building, with ambient light and space, adequate to host corporate events and meals. Traditional Greek and Mediterranean cuisine is served to employees and guests of the π1-innohub, while executive catering is available upon request.
Specially designed to show innovative products and high-tech achievements, the π1-innohub offers a unique exhibition area with 15 stands, promotional material and touch screens, configured on demand. It serves as a pole of attraction for investors, journalists and companies looking for partnerships.
