What we do

EIT Manufacturing is an innovation ecosystem with the mission to bring European manufacturing actors together in order to add unique value to European products, processes, services, and to promote globally competitive and sustainable manufacturing. Read more here About Us.

We solicit activity proposals in the areas of education, innovation, and business creation and will co-invest with the partners to achieve economic value and societal impact.

Who can participate?

We invite organisations that are currently not members of our association to participate in our Call for Proposals. For more information on how to join, please download the Call for Proposals 2022 Guidelines.

Organisations intending to participate in the call must fulfil the following criteria:

  • be able to advance the state of the European manufacturing industry and competencies
  • be eligible for EU funding according to Horizon Europe rules, e.g. incorporated in Europe or associated countries

(Individuals are not eligible)

How to join?

If you want to express your interest to participate, please fill out this form. You will be asked for key information on your organisation, including its general competencies in the manufacturing area and the specific interest in this call.

Note: According to our statutes, the lead partner of an Activity must be an existing member of EIT Manufacturing. This means that you will have to become part of a proposal team, including at least one existing EIT Manufacturing member. You can get in contact with our members via the representative provided in our list of current partners. In addition, the information you provided in the form will be published to our existing partners which then can contact you.

If an activity proposal you are involved in is selected for funding, you will get for one year (2022) the partner status of an “Activity Partner”. During 2022, you will participate in the implementation of the activity, get access to the community’s events, and benefit from networking within the community. This partner status entails paying a fixed yearly fee of €10,000. After 2022, you may apply for a permanent membership.
