Auditorio Alfredo Kraus Teatro Las Palmas de Gran Canarias (Ctra. del Rincón, 35010 Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, Las Palmas, Spain)



Unleashing innovation in the outermost Regions

The EIT Community event ‘Unleashing Innovation in the Outermost Regions' will take place on 5th March 2024 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at The Alfredo Kraus Auditorium in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria. The event will be held in a hybrid format. 

We are hosting this event as part of the EIT Regional Innovation Scheme's tenth-anniversary celebrations. The EIT Regional Innovation Scheme is a unique programme that unlocks the innovative potential of moderate and modest countries within Central, Eastern, and Southern Europe. In light of the fact that the Outermost Regions are part of these groups, we would like to even more eagerly involve the stakeholders from there in the projects pursued by the EIT Community in the field of education, innovation, and entrepreneurship.

During the event, the EIT Strategy for the Outermost Regions will be presented, this was developed in close consultation with local stakeholders. Key conclusions will address possible courses of action for greater inclusion of Outermost Regions in the European innovation ecosystem. The assets of these territories are aligned with the thematic priorities of the EIT Knowledge and Innovation Communities (KICs). It is important to note that they also face persistent constraints, including geographic isolation, climate change vulnerability, and a limited knowledge of available European funds. In line with EU priorities, the EIT strategy aims to empower these territories to unlock their potential, encouraging innovation, collaboration, and knowledge exchange.
