IRIS Portal

Είναι το μεγαλύτερο εργαλείο του Ιδρύματος από τη στιγμή που εκεί υποβάλλονται και αξιολογούνται οι αιτήσεις προς χρηματοδότηση από το οικοσύστημα Έρευνας και Καινοτομίας.

Κατά συνέπεια θέλουμε να έχει πιο εμφανή θέση εντός της αρχικής σελίδας. Ίσως με την εισαγωγή ενός πιο ευδιάκριτου banner.

Σε κάθε περίπτωση θα πρέπει να είναι έντονη η παρουσία του IRIS portal.
