EIT Corona/Covid-19 response activities
The EIT Community is responding with concrete activities and resources to support the global response to the pandemic and with solutions powered by innovators and organisations within its ecosystem. The EIT therefore launched the EIT Crisis Response Initiative as part of the EU’s collective efforts to tackle the COVID-19 crisis.
The EIT Governing Board decided to mobilise EUR 60 million of additional funding to innovators powering high-impact solutions that tackle this unprecedented social and economic challenge. The financing will allow the launch of new innovation projects to address the immediate crisis as part of the ‘Pandemic Response Projects’, and will support highly innovative start-ups, scale-ups and SMEs crucial to the economy’s fast recovery to benefit from additional funding under the ‘Venture Support Instrument’.
