Within the scope of ‘EIT Digital 2020’ activities, EIT Digital solicits proposals for its ‘Innovation Factory’ and ‘Entrepreneurship Academy’ until May 3, 2019.

The EIT Digital Innovation Factory supports pan European entrepreneurial teams to launch new startups and new products.

Partners can be part of European ecosystem of Higher Education Institutions and co-invest to receive both financial and experienced teaching support.

The EIT Digital invests in five strategic areas for a strong digital Europe: Digital Tech, Digital Cities, Digital Industry, Digital Wellbeing, and Digital Finance.
