EIT Awards

Closing Date: 11/03/2022

Annual awards recognising the outstanding achievements of members of EIT’s Innovation Communities (KICs).

The European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT) is an independent body of the European Union set up in 2008 to deliver innovation across Europe. It increases Europe’s ability to innovate by nurturing entrepreneurial talent and supporting new ideas. The EIT brings together leading organisations from business, education and research, the so-called ‘knowledge triangle’, to form dynamic cross-border partnerships – EIT Innovation Communities.

The EIT Awards promote innovation and entrepreneurship in Europe and contribute to the branding of the EIT in Europe and globally. The EIT Awards are considered an essential instrument to demonstrate the EIT’s and KICs’ achievements to stakeholders as well as citizens.

The 2022 EIT Awards cover five categories:

  • EIT Venture, recognising successful entrepreneurial start-ups that have been supported by the innovation communities through dedicated business creation or business development processes
  • EIT CHANGE, celebrating graduates of EIT-labelled education programmes who spur innovation and entrepreneurship and bring about a change in the areas addressed by the EIT and its KICs
  • EIT Innovators, recognising KIC innovation teams composed of individuals from across the knowledge triangle that have developed a product, service or process with a high potential for societal and economic impact
  • EIT Women Leadership, recognising the outstanding work and achievements by exceptional women from the EIT Community
