Innovate with us! Polish innovators invited to join the EIT Community

Warsaw, Poland, 25 September 2018 – Poland’s innovation potential is receiving an adrenaline boost. The European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT) is showcasing its innovation cooperation opportunities during an Awareness Day in Warsaw. This event is organised with NCP Poland under the Patronage of the Ministry of Science and Higher Education.

Europe’s future is connected to its power to innovate. Its competitive edge has never been more important. Poland has enormous potential to expand its innovation capacity (European Innovation Scoreboard), and the EIT stands ready to support Polish innovators. That’s the role of the EIT – to support students, researchers and entrepreneurs to help them grow their businesses, creating jobs, and improving the lives of citizens across Europe. As a global player, the European Union, through the EIT, is focused on powering innovators to turn their best ideas into products, services and jobs for Europe.
