About

EIT Awards

The EIT’s mission is to create an environment that enables entrepreneurship and innovation to flourish across Europe and beyond. To support this, the EIT organises annual awards to showcase some of the leading entrepreneurial talent, women innovators, start-ups, scale-ups, innovative projects and entrepreneurial talent that Europe has to offer.

Join us to celebrate and discover some of the high-impact EIT Community innovations! By highlighting innovative solutions to pressing global challenges  and the talented innovators behind them, the annual EIT Awards inspire a new generation of entrepreneurs. The EIT Awards also showcase how the EIT Community supports and develops entrepreneurial careers.
