EIT Innovations in Practice - Virtual City Tour
Virtual City Tour: Innovations in the spotlight
The EIT Innovation Forum - INNOVEIT 2015 took place in the city of Budapest during 5-7 of May 2015, bringing together more than 600 stakeholders from the European Innovation Community.
INNOVEIT 2015 promoted innovation and encouraged entrepreneurship, providing a platform for dialogue between the EIT Community and external stakeholders. The event celebrated also the best EIT community ventures, graduates and innovation teams, enhancing networking and co-operation with the European Innovation Community.
The objective of the Virtual City Tour was to showcase concrete innovations or innovative activities related to cities, selected from the Knowledge Innovation Centres (KICs) in an exemplary and entertaining way.
What is the Virtual City Tour?
During the Virtual City Tour participants had the opportunity to discover concrete EIT-KIC innovations and results in a guided tour. Each innovation was presented by a specialist from one of the KICs and participants had the chance to ask questions, before moving on to the next innovation. The Virtual City Tour was composed of 29 innovations: 24 innovations/ innovative activities showcased from Climate-KIC, EIT Digital* and KIC InnoEnergy and five innovation plans from EIT Health and EIT Raw Materials.
What follows in this booklet are the factsheets summarising the main features of the innovations showcased, their partners and how the KICs and the EIT supported their development.
We wish you an entertaining tour through all the innovations!
