Today, the EIT is launching the call for expression of interest for the selection of four appointed members of the EIT Governing Board. The EIT Governing Board is entrusted with providing the strategic leadership of the Institute.
Over a hundred entrepreneurs gathered across five cities 6-8 November to take part in a Europe-wide competition organised by the EIT Alumni Community to find a winning startup idea. The teams were formed, ideas developed and pitched, and winners announced – all within just 54 hours.
The EIT is an independent body of the European Union set up in 2008 to spur innovation and entrepreneurship across Europe to overcome some of its greatest challenges. It brings together leading higher education institutions, research labs and companies to form dynamic cross-border partnerships – Knowledge and Innovation Communities, KICs - that develop innovative products and services, start new companies, and train a new generation of entrepreneurs.
