Call for EIT Food Hubs (Regional Innovation Scheme) - regional contact points in 11 countries


EIT Food is one of the largest and most impactful food-related initiatives worldwide. As a Knowledge and Innovation Community (KIC) of the European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT), EIT Food connects partners from leading businesses, universities and research centres across Europe. It is a people-centric and resource-smart transformer of the European food system, driving consumer confidence and improved global health.

The EIT Regional Innovation Scheme (EIT RIS) is the EIT’s outreach scheme. The scheme enables the transfer of good practices and know-how from the EIT’s unique approach to boosting innovation. EIT Food has defined its RIS Strategy, 2018-2020, which supports the EIT's vision for the future-oriented network of stakeholders, linking regions of Europe with diversified innovative potentials and stimulating cooperation between the existing and upcoming innovation leaders.

Selected activities of EIT Food RIS will be implemented with the support of EIT Food Hubs designated in countries targeted by EIT Food. The present call is launched by EIT Food to select organisations (individual organisations having the status of legal persons, not consortia or networks) that would be designated as EIT Food Hubs in targeted EIT RIS countries (acting as subcontractors).
