Upatras ITTO in summary
• Overall: More support is needed to become a
mainstream activity (link to education, lifelong

statement and strategic plan)
– Small human resources allocated, specialized personnel
needed
– Working under an adverse political and business
environment.
– Active mostly at regional level.
– Success stories: PATRAS IQ and Targeted Sector Meetings
– Lack of coordination with the Careers Office structure
– Research Directory not as effective as expected.
