The majority of EIT Manufacturing’s operational budget is dedicated to supporting projects that turn research into industry-ready solutions.

To ensure that innovations reach the market, industry has the right talent and entrepreneurs can thrive, EIT Manufacturing connects and integrates the areas of education, innovation and business creation. Meanwhile, EIT Manufacturing’s Regional Innovation Scheme is designed to overcome disparities between regions – strengthening the local innovation ecosystems in countries that are moderate or modest innovators by offering dedicated programmes and building links between key innovation actors.

EIT Manufacturing’s budget amounts to roughly €400 million until 2026.

Our six Co-Location Centers (CLCs) are strategically situated to link regions with high levels of manufacturing activity and advanced technology.
