The European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT) is an EU body created by the European Union in 2008 to strengthen Europe’s ability to innovate. Today it is Europe's largest innovation ecosystem with over 2 000 partners.
The EIT supports the development of dynamic, long-term thematic partnerships (Knowledge and Innovation Communities, EIT KICs) among companies, research and higher education institutions, to face specific societal challenges. Together with their leading partners across Europe, the EIT Community offers a wide range of innovation and entrepreneurship activities across Europe.
Published every year, the EIT Country Factsheet provides a closer look at the EIT's presence, investment, activities and tangible results across EU Member States and beyond.
