What is it? A public consultation has been launched to help shape the future of the European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT). How can we have our say? The general public and stakeholders in innovation, research and education are invited to share their views of the EIT and on how the EIT’s work might be improved.
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.
