Press Release: EIT Awareness Day – Powering Croatia’s innovation talent

How can innovation effectively tackle global challenges from climate change and sustainable energy to healthy living and urban mobility? The European Institute of Innovation & Technology (EIT) presents proven ways to increase Croatia’s innovation potential and bring tangible solutions to pressing challenges facing Europe.

The event, co-organised with the Croatian Ministry of Economy, Entrepreneurship and Crafts under the auspice of the Croatian Presidency of the Council of the European Union is an opportunity to benefit from and join Europe’s largest innovation network of more than 1500 leading business, research and education organisations – the EIT Community.

Innovators and firm investments are the strongest innovation dimensions in Croatia as presented in the European Commission’s Innovation Scoreboard. Croatia scores well on Non-R&D innovation expenditures, SMEs with marketing or organisational innovations, and enterprises providing ICT training. Yet untapped opportunities for Croatia to expand its innovation capacity remain and that is exactly where the EIT comes in.
