Innovation has a prominent role in Europe’s efforts to tackle major societal and environmental challenges. It is essential to continue to work to create the right climate for innovation in Europe, to help create new industries and jobs. The European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT) is working towards this objective through its operational arms, the Innovation Communities, by accelerating innovation and supporting the creation of the conditions where innovation is more likely to thrive and generate breakthroughs. It does so through the collaboration and interlinking of leading entities from higher education, research and business areas, which are the three sides of the Knowledge Triangle.
The EIT Regional Innovation Scheme (EIT RIS) is the EIT Community’s outreach scheme. The EIT Regional Innovation Scheme was introduced in 2014 to share good practices and experience emerging from the EIT Community activities and to widen participation in the Innovation Communities across Europe.
In order to reach out to Slovakia and the Slovakian ecosystem the EIT and its Innovation Communities on Climate, Food, Health, InnoEnergy and RawMaterials would like to invite you to this Dialogue Conference:
EIT RIS Dialogue Conference in Košice/Slovakia
Venue: DoubleTree by Hilton Košice | Hlavná 1, 040 01 Košice, Slovakia
