The European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT) is a unique EU body that powers innovation and entrepreneurship across Europe to overcome some of its greatest challenges in the areas of climate (EIT Climate‐KIC), digitisation (EIT Digital), energy (EIT InnoEnergy), food (EIT Food) health (EIT Health) and raw materials (EIT Raw Materials).
As an integral part of the EU’s Horizon 2020 framework programme for research and innovation, the EIT Community – Europe’s largest innovation network – brings together leading business, universities and research labs to form dynamic cross‐border partnerships – Innovation Communities – that develop innovative products and services, start new companies, and train a new generation of entrepreneurs.
