EIT Food RIS Innovation Grants

EIT Food RIS Innovation Grants is the umbrella term for business creation activities for EIT RIS beneficiaries.

This includes Innovation Scouting (the identification and support of early-stage entrepreneurial talents), RIS Innovation Grants (awarded in an open competition to entrepreneurs from 15 targeted EIT RIS countries) and the selection of RIS Challenges (identification of Innovation Proposals for RIS specific challenges). The activity implements the "EIT Food RIS Strategy, 2018-2020" and is complemented by KAVA # RIS Action Line 2 and KAVA # RIS Fellowships.
