EIT Awards

Part of the EIT’s mission is to create an environment that allows entrepreneurship and innovation to flourish - both as a way of thinking and as an activity. To support this, the EIT organises annual awards to recognise and reward the successful start-ups, innovative projects and young entrepreneurial talent that Europe has to offer.

Nominees for the EIT Awards 2019 will be announced in July.
