EIT Manufacturing RIS to launch activities worth EUR 5 million to boost European manufacturing industry competitiveness

EIT Manufacturing’s Regional Innovation Scheme (RIS) aims to support innovative organisations with financial support and networking opportunities to increase the resilience and competitiveness of the industry. The programme covers all three pillars of the EIT Knowledge Triangle, innovation, education and business creation, not only to enhance innovation capacity, but also to ensure skilled future workforce and knowledge transfer in modest and moderate innovation countries.

EIT Manufacturing’s RIS 2021 programme is designed to help individuals, businesses, including small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), start-ups, scale-ups, corporates, RTOs, and Universities to contribute to Europe’s innovation ecosystem with new solutions and ideas for manufacturing originating from eligible EU Member States and Horizon Europe Associated Countries, which are modest and moderate innovators according to the European Innovation Scoreboard. EIT Manufacturing is an innovation community supported by the European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT), a body of the European Union.
