Shaping Tomorrow: telling EIT Community success stories

Welcome to Shaping Tomorrow, a new series by the EIT Community!

Every two weeks, we’ll be spotlighting a start-up or initiative that received a helping hand from one of the collaborative initiatives EIT Food undertakes with other EIT Knowledge and Innovation Communities (KICs).

From funding to training and development, we helped each of these projects scale up to bring their vision to as many people as possible and make a positive impact on society—whether in their local community or on a pan-European scale.


Improving the Food System

Agua de Sol turns air into water thanks to the sun

In France, an ex-supplier of air-drying solutions to the nuclear sector draws from his surroundings and transforms into an unlikely champion of clean, free drinking water.

On a mission to bring fresh water to communities in need, and to people drinking plastic bottled water its smart, simple 'SunAir Fountain' fights water scarcity hand in hand with local users and their sky-rocketing needs for clean drinking water.

Driving Systematic Change outside the Food System

Entropic, Nature and Design, in Perfect Harmony

In the office building of Entropic, you might spot a photo of an innocuous-looking bridge perched up above Geoffrey Eberle’s desk. But, like everything to do with this world-leading urbanist design collective, it turns out be far more than meets the eye.
