IN3’s Urban Transformation and Global Change Laboratory (TURBA Lab) is pleased to invite you to the Partner Event: «How is the EIT Community accelerating a sustainable, resilient, and equal future?» —in the framework of the EU Green Week and the partnership with the European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT)— that will be held on June 6 in the Hall of the R&I Hub, Ground Floor, Building C.
The EIT is a body of the European Union that aims to strengthen Europe’s competitiveness and to contribute to its sustainable economic growth and job creation. Through its nine Innovation Communities, EIT strengthens cooperation among businesses, higher education institutions and research organizations to foster innovation. The Innovation Communities offer support for innovators at every stage of their innovation journey, from education programmes, business acceleration & innovation-driven research projects. Through the EIT Community initiatives, the Innovation Communities work together on cross-cutting programmes that support European innovators in different sectors.
What is this Partner Event about?
Are you passionate about creating sustainable, resilient and equitable communities? Do you want to know more about how the largest innovation ecosystem in Europe is advancing these ideas through their programmes? Do you want to understand how you can get your ideas funded and supported? Then join the EIT Community for a morning of exchanges as part of the EU Green Week!
EIT Community's Program Leaders will discuss upcoming 2023 programs, successes and answer any questions that you might have about our initiatives on the New European Bauhaus, Circular Economy, Artificial Intelligence and Supernovas, our series of programs to promote women entrepreneurship.
