In addition, the “PatrasIQ 2015” report benefits the citizens of the region in many ways and in the following ways:

the application of research and innovation in the productive industry creates new products, generates new needs and ultimately creates new jobs. The new jobs offer income in the region and multiplier benefits in the national income.
