About our EIT Food HUBs 

The role of the EIT Food Hubs is to implement a plan of activities in their respective EIT Regional Innovation Scheme (EIT RIS) area to contribute to boosting the ability to innovate of these countries and regions in Europe. More information on the EIT RIS and the countries and regions included in the scheme can be found here.

The selected EIT Food HUBs will follow a precisely-defined outreach workplan in their respective target countries and regions. Activities include acting as a regional contact point for all EIT Food related interests, regularly updating a contact list of relevant stakeholders, maintaining relations with key regional players, engaging in the exploration of the local start-up community, organising events and workshops for students, graduates and entrepreneurs and promoting EIT Food’s portfolio of instruments to ensure that local innovators (individuals and organisations) are aware of their existence and can benefit from these. 

EIT Food HUBs are individual organisations having the status of legal persons or two organisations acting as a consortium/innovation network, where one organisation acts as a lead entity and the other organisation supports business creation activities and start-up ecosystem. The selection process was implemented as an open call managed by the EIT Food co-location centres (CLC) North East and CLC South, using clear and transparent selection criteria.
