The European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT) is proud to announce 12 new EIT Label programmes within our education portfolio.
One of the main added values of the EIT's unique innovation model is to integrate the education dimension into the innovation web. The EIT supports the creation of tomorrow’s entrepreneurs and promotes a real change of mindset towards an entrepreneurial culture and attitude.
For this reason, the EIT has introduced the EIT Label as a certificate of quality that is awarded only to excellent educational programmes. The EIT Innovation Communities and their partners have developed their own educational programmes to address the need for excellent entrepreneurial education with a strong focus on innovation skills, keeping in mind that it is necessary to educate students to have knowledge of how to solve real-life problems. In line with this, the EIT introduced the EIT CHANGE Award, part of our annual EIT Awards. The EIT CHANGE Award recognises graduates of EIT education programmes who spur innovation and entrepreneurship, inspiring change for a sustainable future. This year's EIT CHANGE award went to Chaitanya Dhumasker, from MonitorFish (Berlin, Germany) and supported by EIT Climate-KIC. Keep reading here.
