This event will bring together Europe’s key decision-makers and political leaders who are engaged in the innovation world, to address both the challenges and opportunities facing innovation today in Europe, and discuss the lessons learned by the EIT over the last decade in its endeavour to build a robust and resilient innovation ecosystem.
The European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT) is an independent body created by the European Union in 2008 to bring innovation to the whole of Europe. Today, it is the largest innovation ecosystem in Europe, boasting over 2000 partners.
The EIT aims to connect educational institutions and research organisations so that they can form cross-disciplinary, stimulating partnerships. These are known as innovation communities and each of them is dedicated to finding solutions to specific challenges.
The EIT’s innovation communities develop innovative products and services, set up new businesses and train the next generation of entrepreneurs. By joining forces, they can help entrepreneurs throughout Europe to transform budding ideas into tangible projects.
