Following the official publication of the EIT Legislative package last week, I am pleased to invite you to the EIT Strategic Innovation Agenda 2021-2027 Launch Event “New EIT Strategy to power Europe’s largest innovation network”, on 14 June. The event is organised in collaboration with the Portuguese Presidency of the Council of the European Union and marks the launch of the EIT’s new strategy as part of Horizon Europe. Building on last year’s EIT Stakeholder Forum, it will enable participants to share views and ask questions on our upcoming activities.
The new EIT strategy has four main priorities and many new features. The EIT Community will strengthen its impact, boost its support to higher education and increase its regional development efforts. We will also set up two new EIT Knowledge and Innovation Communities: the first in 2022 in the field of the Cultural and Creative Sectors and Industries and the second in the field of water, marine and maritime sectors and ecosystems in 2026.
Among the prominent speakers, you will hear from Mariya Gabriel, European Commissioner for Innovation, Research, Culture, Education and Youth; Maria da Graça Carvalho, Member of the European Parliament, Manuel Heitor, Portuguese Minister of Science, Technology and Higher Education and Gioia Ghezzi, Chair of the EIT Governing Board, Peter Carlsson, CEO of Northvolt.
