H.F.R.I. aims in fostering partnerships of elevated status with corresponding bodies abroad, but also establishing communication channels and bonds between the Greek academic/research community and the business community abroad.

In particular, H.F.R.I. aims at collaborations with:

  • Internationally acclaimed institutions and foundations located abroad, with the aim of designing common Actions and exchanging best practices.
  • Financial institutions especially interested in targeted Actions for showcasing results and/or innovations that stem from research activities.
  • Greek or foreign charitable institutions which, due to their nature, may become strategic allies in meeting H.F.R.I. objectives.
  • Internationally acclaimed foreign universities and research centers, through which the Foundation may plan actions and practices aiming to strengthen the ties between domestic academic and research staff, and staff of said institutions.
  • Greek and foreign business communities, with the obvious aim of attracting funds for designing and implementing Actions that interlink research to innovation.
  • The Greek community of the Diaspora, which has the potential to become a strong ally by the side of H.F.R.I.
