The EIT’s Innovation Forum INNOVEIT 2017 combines the EIT Awards and the EIT Stakeholder Forum with a specific focus on shaping innovation in Europe and consulting stakeholders on the EIT`s Strategic Innovation Agenda 2021-2027.

INNOVEIT 2017 brings together up to 600 participants from the European innovation landscape. You will be able to meet the whole EIT Community, representatives of higher education and research organisations, policy-makers, entrepreneurs and other key actors. We will also share lessons learned and good practices in the areas of innovation, education and entrepreneurship, and showcase successful innovations and ventures emerging from the EIT Community, as well as their development process and impact on societal challenges.

In an inspiring and interactive way, INNOVEIT 2017 will:

  • Discuss “Shaping innovation in Europe” and consult on the EIT`s Strategic Innovation Agenda 2021-2027
  • Showcase successful innovations and ventures emerging from the EIT Community, including their development and their effect on societal challenges, and present the next generation of entrepreneurs and change makers

The EIT Awards 2017 ceremony will be held on 16 October during the EIT’s annual Innovation Forum, INNOVEIT, in Budapest. The 21 nominations represent Europe’s most promising entrepreneurs and innovators. Each nominee has been selected for driving European innovation through ground-breaking products, services and processes that address global challenges in the fields of climate, energy, digitalisation, health and raw materials.
