The European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT) and coordinator EIT RawMaterials are launching a new call under the EIT HEI Initiative aimed at boosting innovation in higher education. The newly announced call will mobilise up to EUR 12 million of EIT funding for higher education institutions (HEIs) and their partners. A new feature of this year’s call will be a special focus on training tech talents in higher education, aligned with the EIT’s new flagship programme Deep Tech Talent Initiative, which is set to skill one million European talents by 2023.
