About us

EIT Manufacturing East serves seven countries in Central and Eastern Europe: Austria, Croatia, Czechia, Hungary, Serbia, Slovakia and Slovenia. In close collaboration with our partners, our network and the local ecosystems, we bring together leading manufacturing actors from industry, academia and research across Europe to make innovation happen, building a bridge to manufacturing innovation in Central and Eastern Europe. We work through the knowledge triangle that includes Business Creation, Education and Innovation, and put a strategic focus on the Regional Innovation Scheme (RIS) – the EIT Community’s outreach scheme to transfer good practices and know-how.

EIT Manufacturing East is based in the Technology Center Seestadt in Vienna, Austria, surrounded by an innovative ecosystem of startups, industry, technology companies, and research centers.

We are constantly expanding our network and looking for new partnerships. If you a interested in joining the EIT Manufacturing East ecosystem, please reach out to us!
