The European Institute of Innovation and Technology launches its Strategic Innovation Agenda for 2021-2027

On 14th June 2021, the European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT) launched its Strategic Innovation Agenda (SIA) for 2021 – 2027. With an extended mandate for the coming years and a budget of almost € 3 billion under Horizon Europe, the EIT will help revitalize Europe and transform green and digital.

The EIT’s new strategy was kicked off with a hybrid launch event online and live from the International Iberian Institute of Nanotechnology in Braga, Portugal and organised under the auspices of the Portuguese Presidency of the Council.

Following the introductory policy session, four thematic sessions were held each focusing on the key areas of the EIT’s new strategy: strengthening the EIT Community’s impact, increasing the entrepreneurial and innovation capacity of higher education institutions, strengthening the EIT’s regional development efforts, through the Regional Innovation Scheme, and setting up two innovation communities dedicated to the cultural and creative sectors and industries (2022) and to water, marine and maritime sectors and ecosystems (2026).
