EIT Global Outreach Programme connects talents, knowledge and key players worldwide to tackle societal challenges.
The EIT Global Outreach programme links business, research and education to create relationships and market opportunities in key locations outside Europe – enabling the EIT and its communities to develop world-class solutions to societal challenges, and to create jobs and deliver sustainable economic growth opportunities for Europe.
The Cross-KIC Global Outreach programme was established in 2018 to act as a bridge, linking the EIT’s innovation ecosystem with those of innovation valleys around the world, forging synergies with global innovation leaders and creating significant value for the European economy, alongside the local ecosystems.
By working together, the EIT Knowledge and Innovation Communities develop activities that showcase EIT-supported innovations at international level, create tailor-made support to facilitate the internationalisation efforts of European entrepreneurs and innovators, and bring together knowledge and resources from the EIT innovation ecosystem and the selected outreach locations to tackle global challenges and contribute to the Sustainable Development Goals.
The Global Outreach Programme, which EIT Manufacturing is part of, is led by EIT Health-KIC and is managed by the EIT Global Outreach Working Group, which consists of representatives of the EIT and its KICs.
