The European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT) is an EU body created by the European Union in 2008 to strengthen Europe’s ability to innovate. The EIT is an integral part of Horizon Europe, the EU’s Framework Programme for Research and Innovation.
The Institute supports dynamic pan-European partnerships, EIT Knowledge and Innovation Communities, composed of leading companies, research labs and universities each dedicated to solving a pressing global challenge, from climate change to health, to renewable energy.
They foster innovation by working across the entire innovation chain by designing unique education courses that combine technical and entrepreneurial skills, supporting innovation-driven research projects, and offering business and acceleration services, enabling European innovators and entrepreneurs to connect and cooperate.
As EIT Community, we are proud of our networks, which bring together innovators, research institutes and companies from various industries across Europe – for example manufacturing, food, digital technology or raw materials.
We prioritize the effectiveness and sustainability of our projects. The same applies to our collaboration with project partners across Europe, which is characterised by responsibility and a high level of trust. Our project partners can rely on our support in all project phases.
Be part of our testbed projects and shape the industry of tomorrow with us! Whether you’re a company, research organisation or university – we will find suitable project options for you!
