"Today I visited the Campus of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) with Consul Stratos Efthymiou, where we were guided by Nikos Andrikogiannopoulos (MIT), founder of Metrika.
With MIT Campus in Kendall Square as its center, academics, researchers, students, spin-off companies, start-ups and large companies have built, within a few miles, an impressively interactive innovation ecosystem in which many of the ideas are created. of the future.
The presence of "talented" Greeks in the Boston innovation ecosystem is important.
