The Knowledge and Innovation Communities of the European Institute of Innovation & Technology (EIT) are partnerships that bring together businesses, research centres and universities. They allow:
- innovative products and services to be developed in every area imaginable, including climate change, healthy living and active ageing,
- new companies to be started,
- a new generation of entrepreneurs to be trained.
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 this integration of the three is more efficient and has a higher impact on innovation (talent, technology, companies) than the three standing alone.
