EIT Awards Yearbook 2016 - Celebrating innovation and entrepreneurship
The EIT Awards recognise and reward some of the most talented individuals and start-ups supported by the EIT Community.
The 2016 ceremony took place in Budapest during INNOVEIT, the EIT's annual innovation forum, and was a fitting counterpart to an event that celebrated the best and brightest of modern European innovation.
The European Institute of Innovation & Technology (EIT) is an independent body of the European Union set up in 2008 to deliver innovation across Europe. The EIT brings together leading business, education and research organisations to form dynamic cross-border partnerships. These are called Innovation Communities and each is dedicated to finding solutions to a specific global challenge. EIT Innovation Communities develop innovative products and services, start new companies, and train a new generation of entrepreneurs. Together, we power innovators and entrepreneurs across Europe to turn their best ideas into products, services, jobs and growth.
