INNOVEIT Stockholm: Innovation in Higher Education (Hybrid)
15 September 2022
EIT Innovation Community is happy to invite you to the INNOVEIT Stockholm: Innovation in Higher Education
This joint EIT Community event, hosted by EIT RawMaterials, is an integral part of the INNOVEIT Weeks 2022, which will consist of several decentralised events across Europe showcasing how Europe’s largest innovation ecosystem offers opportunities for innovators.
The INNOVEIT Stockholm event will highlight the ongoing work of the EIT’s HEI Initiative: Innovation Capacity Building for Higher Education, a joint EIT Community activity coordinated by EIT RawMaterials. The programme will feature presentations and panel participation from several of the projects selected for the Pilot Cohort of the HEI Initiative, which launched in July 2021.
This event is in support of the European Commission-funded European Innovation and Technology (EIT), which is Europe’s largest innovation ecosystem offering opportunities for innovators at every step of their journey. In the past 10 years, EIT has built Europe’s largest innovation ecosystem connecting thousands of partners.
Furthermore, the event will open the conversation wider by inviting key players and thought leaders from across the knowledge triangle (industry, research and higher education) to share their insights into where and how innovation, entrepreneurship and higher education do and should intersect to move closer towards a unified vision for the future of innovation in higher education.
The joint EIT Community event will also offer a platform for the CEOs of start-ups to amplify and hone their messaging and potentially launch new activities and collaborations.
The INNOVEIT Stockholm: Innovation in Higher Education event will focus on the following themes:
- best practices and methodologies from the EIT’s HEI Initiative for increasing the innovation capacity of HEIs;
- building effective, sustainable innovation and entrepreneurship courses for the 21st century;
- fostering Deep Tech talents at universities.
