Information technology and technology covered the problems of the financial crisis

The IT and technology sectors in general have made leaps and bounds in Greece in the last three years, with a decisive role in the digital transformation of the Greek State and Greek businesses. The movements on IT matters of the Greek state and also on the reinforcement of the human staff in companies are noticeably increased. Essentially, a state that was technologically inferior until 2012-2013 (still following 80s protocols) managed to close the gap with the developed EU states. It is also trying to cover some of the loss of technology scientists who left during the 10-year economic crisis abroad. The pandemic acted as a catalyst towards the digital transformation of the Greek state and accelerated the convergence steps with the developed states.
The new IT development model in Greece will be based mainly on funding from the EU through Greece 2.0 and will be promoted with special tax and investment incentives and the creation of “incubators] for start-up businesses in special hubs in collaboration with municipalities, universities and TEI, according to the standards of Germany, France, Britain and America.
According to the updated figures of the study done by Deloitte for SEPE, the growth dynamics of the digital industry for the country has accelerated, expecting Greece to fully recover by 2025, returning to the level it was at before the massive ten-year crisis. SEPE hopes that, soon, we as a country will again be in 4th place internationally, according to the World Economic Forum, in the availability of engineers and technology scientists, a position we held in 2007, before the crisis. In this context, the footprint of the Association and the industry continues to expand, confirming the industry’s catalytic role for the country. Digital technology is a priori the common denominator, a key pillar of development and prosperity of every modern society. Finally, special reference was also made to the current and particularly serious issue of the lack of human resources in the digital technology sector. SEPE has already been active for almost a decade in the training of unemployed and workers in specialized fields, which companies need today, to meet their needs in human resources, accompanied by the corresponding certifications of the sector.
