This year’s Innovation Forum, INNOVEIT 2016, combined the EIT Awards and the EIT Stakeholder Forum with a specific focus on joining forces for innovation in Europe.
INNOVEIT 2016 explored collaboratation opportunities among the EIT, KICs and other initiatives and activities in the innovation field.
The EIT Alumni CONNECT event, which is the annual forum for EIT graduates to network, was organised back-to-back with INNOVEIT.
INNOVEIT 2016 brought together up to 350 entrepreneurs, representatives of business, education and research; EU, national and regional policy makers, as well as entrepreneurial graduates.
In an inspiring and interactive way, INNOVEIT 2016:
- Showcased innovations and ventures emerging from the EIT Community, including their development and their impact on societal challanges;
- Increased the debate among internal and external stakeholders on joining forces for innovation to widen engagement with EIT KICs; and
- Presented the next generation of young entrepreneurs and change agents.
