The European Institute of Innovation & Technology (EIT)

The European Institute of Innovation & Technology

The European Institute of Technology (EIT), with its headquarters in Budapest (Hungary), is an EU body created by the European Union in 2008 to strengthen Europe’s ability to innovate. The EIT is an integral part of Horizon 2020, the EU’s Framework Programme for Research and Innovation.

EIT Urban Mobility is one of eight EIT Innovation Communities initiated by the EIT. Our programmes are intersectoral, interdisciplinary, international and entrepreneurial.

Making innovation happen!

The EIT brings together leading business, education and research organisations to form dynamic cross-border partnerships. These are called Innovation Communities and each is dedicated to finding solutions to a specific global challenge. EIT Innovation Communities develop innovative products and services, start new companies, and train a new generation of entrepreneurs. Together, we power innovators and entrepreneurs across Europe to turn their best ideas into products, services, jobs and growth.
