About EIT

The European Institute of Innovation & Technology (EIT) is an independent body of the European Union set up in 2008 to deliver innovation across Europe. The EIT brings together leading business, education and research organizations to form dynamic cross-border partnerships. These are called Innovation Communities and each is dedicated to finding solutions to a specific global challenge. EIT Innovation Communities develop innovative products and services, start new companies, and train a new generation of entrepreneurs. Together, we power innovators and entrepreneurs across Europe to turn their best ideas into products, services, jobs and growth.

The EIT Regional Innovation Scheme (EIT RIS) was created by the European Institute of innovation and Technology (EIT) to close the gap between regions that are leaders in innovation and those regions which are progressing. The programme is implemented with the involvement of local Hubs.
EIT Food RIS aims at strengthening those regions in Europe, which are modest and moderate in terms of innovation in the AgriFood sector. There is currently a network of 15 EIT Food HUBs located in 15 targeted RIS countries, one of which is AgriFood Lithuania DIH in Vilnius, Lithuania.
