At InnoEnergy, sustainability is about more than lowering emissions. True sustainability also means an industry that’s commercially viable, endlessly innovative, and highly competitive. We make this possible by supporting sustainable energy innovations which provide industry with risk free, pioneering new technologies that reduce energy costs, increase system performance, decrease greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, create jobs, and increase competitiveness.

EIT HUB NETWORK
Our main goal in Central and Eastern Europe is to build a sustainable structure of partnerhsips, aiming to increase the innovation capacity within the region. To achieve this we have built a Hub network with trusted Partners, who run our local operational units as EIT InnoEnergy Hubs.
EIT InnoEnergy is the key player within the CEE region, supporting investment at every stage of the journey from classroom to end customer. Universities are an unlimited source of innovation projects. The research that is conducted in the labs and their subsequent products has the potential to change the future trajectory of the energy sector within Europe. The dynamic start up ecosystem within the CEE region highly depends on the dedicated partners and passionate entrepreneurs.
To be effective with such demanding challenges in front of us we need believers, who will have strong skills and knowledge, but will also dare to change the current and design with us the future of the region.
InnoEnergy Hubs are supported by the InnoEnergy Power Alliance – an initiative funded through the European Institute of Innovation & Technology Regional Innovation Scheme (EIT RIS), which is a framework developed to increase the innovation capacity in regions in Europe not directly benefitting from the EIT or InnoEnergy activities.

EIT REGIONAL INNOVATION SCHEME (EIT RIS)
The EIT Regional Innovation Scheme (EIT RIS) is designed for EU Member States and Horizon 2020 Associated Countries in Europe who are modest and moderate innovators (according to the European Innovation Scoreboard), and where Innovation Communities have few or no partners. Strategically, the scheme is an additional offer to these countries to facilitate their engagement with the EIT Innovation Communities.
