EIT Manufacturing RIS Hubs
Eleven countries in the region of CLC East are being considered RIS eligible. The Regional Innovation Scheme (RIS) of EIT Manufacturing has established so-called RIS Hubs in some of those countries to facilitate the deployment of EIT Manufacturing’ activities and mobilise, interlink and internationalise the local networks with the European EIT Manufacturing community. The RIS Hubs act as an interaction point between EIT Manufacturing and local actors, liaising with and provide expertise to the relevant national, regional and local authorities and ensuring the active involvement of local knowledge triangle actors.
So far, there are eight RIS Hubs in the CLC East region, namely in Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Greece, Hungary, Romania, Slovakia and Slovenia.
