EIT Digital: Innovation Funding Workshop - Highlands & Islands

Who is EIT Digital?

EIT Digital is a top 5 European accelerator programme operating in 18 cities across Europe with a €100m budget. We have a Scottish base in Edinburgh funded by Scottish Enterprise and Scottish Funding Council and constitute the biggest and widest conduit for Scottish Companies into European ecosystems. We are also supported by Highlands & Islands Enterprise, FinTech Scotland, Edinburgh Innovations and University of Edinburgh.

What do you do?

We use dedicated European funding to promote research through Masters and PhD programmes, and invest in innovation (between €200k-€2m). This year from our Scottish base in Edinburgh we achieved a 58% success rate for innovation proposals levering €2m cash funding for digital innovation into Scottish companies.

Why should I come to this meeting?

Companies that are involved in digital innovation should consider joining us in Inverness for this event. We will present the EIT Digital ecosystem, the funding programme and run a question/answer session.
