New EIT strategy 2021-2027

With an enhanced mandate for the coming years and a budget of almost EUR 3 billion under Horizon Europe, the EIT will help power Europe’s recovery and green and digital transition. The priorities are laid out in our new Strategic Innovation Agenda (SIA) for 2021-2027.

The EIT is planning to boost our support to higher education institutions, increase our regional innovation activities, and strengthen the impact of the entire EIT Community. The Institute will also set up two new EIT Knowledge and Innovation Communities: the first for the Cultural & Creative Sectors and Industries in 2022 and the second for the Water, Marine, and Maritime Sectors in 2026.

Who should join

Innovators and organisations from business, education and research across Europe who want to learn more about the EIT and the different opportunities offered by the EIT Community.

How can you join

This is a hybrid event. You can join us online or in person at the International Iberian Institute of Nanotechnology (INL) in Braga, Portugal and you will be able to indicate your preference during registration.
