Bridging R&D and industry-ready solutions.

EIT Manufacturing connects, supports, launches and scales innovative solutions to the market.

Our aim is to ensure adoption of innovations, with manufacturers as end-users, and to improve market reach and robust scale-up.

In order to achieve our aim, we work on connecting people and ideas, exploring challenges and solutions, and support the execution of selected projects. 

  • Build an ecosystem, facilitate networking, diffuse technology intelligence and identify future trends e.g. through the Tech Radar, a powerful digital tool for technology foresight and business intelligence that provides solid information on most impacting technologies for manufacturing.
  • Identify innovation hotspots, select and prioritise key strategic topics and support launch of collaborative projects using our extended network, in particular through AGORA, our social network and open innovation platform.
  • Accelerate technologies and business models towards a higher level of market readiness. We co-fund innovation projects with the aim of commercialising, looking carefully at sales generated or new ventures created.
  • Drive the transformation of the existing manufacturing ecosystem in Europe by fostering adoption of new technologies and business models.
