Innovation networking within Producer Groups (PGs): The case of two PGs in Ierapetra, Crete

The current paper aims at exploring innovation networking practices among the members of two Producer Groups (PGs) in Ierapetra area, Crete. Results show that the first PG’s members are better incorporated in the PG’s innovation network(s) as well as that its leaders are conceived of as innovators. On the contrary, the innovation network of the second PG is highly fragmented and dependent on the leaders of the first PG. These results have implications in terms of the PGs’ innovation capacity as well as of extension work, especially with a view to current developments in both Greece and the EU.
