The EIT Innovators Award (€ 50,000) recognises KIC innovation teams composed of individuals from across the knowledge triangle that have developed a product, service or process with a high potential for societal and economic impact.
The EIT Venture Award (€ 50,000) puts successful entrepreneurial start-ups that have been supported by the KICs through a dedicated business creation or business development process in the spotlight.
