The European Institute of Innovation & Technology (EIT) is launching the EIT Campus – bringing together all EIT entrepreneurship education and skill development activities offered by the Institute and its nine Knowledge and Innovation Communities (EIT KICs).

As part of the launch, the EIT is introducing an online platform that will be home to over 250 courses in the thematic areas tackled by the EIT Community. The first courses featured on the platform are in the areas of climate, food, urban mobility and raw materials and support the skills transition for a greener and healthier Europe.  

Mariya Gabriel, European Commissioner for Innovation, Research, Culture, Education and Youth said: We created the EIT Campus to offer one central entry point for students and professionals willing to expand their knowledge on diverse topics, while keeping an eye on innovation and entrepreneurship. The training offers and opportunities provided by EIT Campus will widen their horizon in domains that are crucial for our future. We want both students and professionals to be best equipped because they belong to the driving forces that will support Europe in its digital and green transitions. 

In addition to business creation and acceleration, and innovation projects, entrepreneurship education serves as one of the main pillars of support the EIT Community offers to thousands of innovators across Europe. Over the past decade, the EIT Community has developed a wide range of cutting-edge educational activities based on partnerships between universities, companies, and research centres. Since 2018, the EIT has channelled over EUR 350 million of funding towards entrepreneurship education activities across all EIT Knowledge and Innovation Communities powering the next generation of European talents.
