There could be no better location than Crete for this program on Leading Innovation. Crete, the center of the Minoan Civilization, was a leader in innovation in the ancient world. Their advanced architecture, commerce, arts are remnants of a civilization that had innovation at its core. The ancient palace at Knossos is a remarkable construction that still, to this day, remains enigmatic.
But the tradition of innovation on Crete carries forward to this day. Its olive oil, wine, and other industries (including its famous rusks ‘Manna’), are competing on a global scale due to their leading innovative systems.
