Ever wondered what the EIT in front of InnoEnergy stands for? While I was researching InnoEnergy, I found EIT was funding a lot of different Master’s and short courses. A little digging and talking to the EIT InnoEnergy team made me realise how well the Master programmes are catered towards achieving Europe’s sustainability & renewable energy goals.
The European Institute of Innovation and Technology is a European innovation body with a mission to educate a new generation of entrepreneurs and innovators in Europe with an entrepreneurial mindset .
