is designed for EU Member States and Horizon 2020 Associated Countries in Europe who are modest and moderate innovators (according to the European Innovation Scoreboard), and where Innovation Communities have few or no partners. Strategically, the scheme is an additional offer to these countries to facilitate their engagement with the EIT Innovation Communities.
EIT InnoEnergy's mission is to build a sustainable, long-lasting operational framework among the three actors of the knowledge triangle in the energy sector: industry, research and higher education, and ensure that the integration of the three is more efficient and has a higher impact on innovation (talent, technology, companies) than the three standing alone.
The challenge is big but our goal is simple: to achieve a sustainable energy future for Europe.
