In Part 3 more details will be given concerning the ongoing and final results of the project implementation. Based on the above results, the future actions to specialize the current national Research and Innovation Strategies will be outlined. Furthermore, the possible players involved in these actions will be listed as well as the implementation period will be specified. Finally, the cost of the Action Plan implementation and the relevant funding sources will be estimated and listed respectively".
