Call for Submissions

ISPIM Connects Athens 2022, will bring together Europe’s largest community of researchers, managers, business and thought leaders in the heart of Greece’s vibrant capital city. ISPIM, in partnership with The National and Kapodistrian University of Athens and under the patronage of the Government of the Hellenic Republic, encourages insights on innovation management hot-topics and submissions from academic, research, consulting, industry, intermediary and policy perspectives at this in-person conference.

The conference will celebrate the strong roots with which Greece’s innovation ecosystem has grown in recent years. A significant increase in start-ups, innovation funding and skilled entrepreneurs, enabled by Greece’s transformative public innovation policies, provides a rich backdrop for the conference. Much of this expanding ecosystem will be explored during the conference to provide connections, knowledge flows and partnerships between local and international delegates. And we should not forget the extensive Greek diaspora who will contribute their insights from around the world to the conference.

We encourage examples and insights into successful innovation practice, challenges or research from all regions of the world. If you are in doubt, please discuss your idea with an email to
