About us

HETiA is Greece’s alliance of highly innovative industrial and academic performers, promoting digital technology proliferation and entrepreneurship in emerging technology domains.

HETiA is the evolution of the Hellenic Semiconductor Industry Association (HSIA) that was launched in 2005 to represent the semiconductor, micro- and nano-electronics and embedded systems industry in Greece. It initially had 13 industrial members. Today, we bring together 47 industrial members and 28 universities and institutes.

Located in Greece, HETiA represents an entrepreneurial hub poised to connect high-tech enterprises in Europe, Middle East and Africa and serving as a gateway to the region for companies located in the USA or Asia. As an integral part of the European Union, Greece now reboots after a debt crisis and presents an attractive environment for those who wish to benefit from its long-term development prospects, its highly skilled technological workforce, and the safeguard of the EU professional practices and regulatory framework.
