The European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT) has published its report for the EIT Regional Innovation Scheme (RIS) for 2018.
The Regional Innovation Scheme (RIS) is a tool to engage with a broader range of stakeholders. The report outlines the main on-the-ground activities and highlights success stories of start-ups and innovators in parts of Central, Eastern and Southern Europe.
The objective of the EIT RIS is to widen participation in the EIT Innovation Communities’ activities by engaging players from countries that have lower participation in EIT Innovation Communities. The EIT RIS is designed for EU Member States and Horizon 2020 Associated Countries in Europe who are modest and moderate innovators, and where Innovation Communities have few or no partners. In 2018, EIT innovation Communities invested €15 million of the EIT grant in their EIT RIS activities and programmes. More information on the EIT Regional Innovation Scheme is available on the dedicated EIT Webpage.
