Almost for a decade now, Greece has experienced a deep economic crisis. According to the theory of economic growth, as well as the experience of other countries, the prioritization of knowledge-intensive activities might be a useful tool for growing the economy. Mass media discourse exerts influence on the public sphere and popular opinion, but in most of cases, articles dealing with research, technology, and innovation (RTI) seem to have been focused—before and after the crisis’s onset—mainly on failures of the national RTI system, without considering RTI as a potential growth factor. However, the RTI sector has gained some ground in the national policy agenda, especially in terms of policy planning for 2020. It seems, though, that this should be attributed to the limited space for political maneuver that Greek governments have at their disposal to exit the crisis, which is directly related to the new policy framework advanced by the EU’s cohesion policy.
