INNOVEIT: Road to net zero with Europe's largest innovation ecosystem

INNOVEIT: Road to net zero with Europe's largest innovation ecosystem

Welcome to the Berlin-edition of the EIT's INNOVEIT event series!

Which strategies empower changemakers to develop innovative, sustainable technologies for a greener future? How can different players work together to achieve the net zero goal and which role does the European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT) play in this?

These and other questions will be answered at our INNOVEIT conference in Berlin on 15 May 2024. To kick off the Greentech Festival, the EIT Community invites all researchers, investors, corporate and start-up representatives to learn more about the initiatives, engage in insightful discussions and network with like-minded people who share the same passion for sustainability.

The event is organised by the EIT Community as part of the EIT's flagship INNOVEIT event series and notably aligns with the Greentech Festival that takes place in Berlin that week. The conference will focus on the EIT’s role and impact in boosting green and sustainable innovation across Europe. Through engaging keynote speeches, stimulating panel discussions, inspiring pitches and networking sessions, participants will learn about the impact achieved as well as opportunities offered by Europe’s largest innovation network, including a potential new Knowledge and Innovation Community focused on the challenges facing the water, marine and maritime ecosystems.
