Deputy Development and Investment Minister, Christos Dimas is overseeing the project and has said that the aim of the project is to develop state-of-the-art infrastructure with 4th generation technologies such as industrial laboratories, machinery, computer facilities, a large-scale incubator and accelerator, flexible office space, collaboration and networking areas, a theme park for education and recreation, a conference centre , cycle paths and green spaces. 

More than 70 significant and cutting-edge businesses, universities, and research institutions have so far signed MoUs with Thess INTEC. The project has been included in the Recovery Fund and will be financed with approximately 35 million euros.
