New EIT liaison office opens in Brussels

On 26 September 2017, the new Brussels premises of the European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT) were opened. Commissioner for Education, Culture, Youth and Sport, Tibor Navracsics, responsible for the EIT, said ahead of the event: "We have built a successful EIT community of universities, research organisations, high growth businesses, start-ups, NGOs, cities and regions, and I welcome the opening of EIT House as a crucial step in the development of that community. Better representation in Brussels will create more synergies with other EU programmes, further reinforcing our efforts to foster entrepreneurial mind-sets and enable young people to help build a better Europe." The EIT Community currently brings together more than 1,000 partners across Europe and beyond, six Knowledge and Innovation Communities (KICs) and more than 40 co-location centres to tackle major societal challenges such as sustainable energy and healthcare systems, digitalisation, or climate change.
