About the community + Programmes

The focus is to create sustainable energy in every sense of the word so the entire production process is being looked at. The three parts of the knowledge triangle are involved with the focus on enhanced collaboration between them and on innovations that should be taken up by the market.

They are focusing on these broad areas:

  • Energy storage
  • Sustainable cities and buildings
  • Renewable energies
  • Smart electric grid
  • Energy efficiency
  • Energy for the circular economy
  • Energy for transport and mobility

If you are an innovator and it fits within one of these eight thematic field and contains a promising technology or service then you can apply for their Investment Round programma where they will not just help you with the funding but also with making the product or service market-ready and turn it into a viable business.

When you already have a company then there are other options to accelerate commercialization and market take-up of your products and services. For start-ups there is the highway accelerator programme, for scale-ups the boostway programme and for more established companies there is also a guidance trajectory.

Apart from the business part, this EIT also had an education pillar where they want to train the workers who will be active in these innovative areas.

How to get involved?

The EIT publishes regularly calls for proposals for these different programmes. You can find out the opportunities and latest news at the webpage of the innovation community.

BEAT-AF - Ground-Breaking Electroporation-based intervention for Atrial Fibrillation treatment

The Horizon2020 project BEAT-AF brings together 9 European renowned clinical centres in France, Belgium, Czechia, Germany and Austria. Together, the consortium strives to revolutionize Atrial Fibrillation (AF) treatment through catheter ablation and contribute to decrease the huge burden of AF in Europe. The BEAT-AF project kicked off in 2021 and will run until 2026. The department of electrophysiology of the AZ Sint-Jan Hospital in Bruges is partner in the project and has so far contributed to the pre-clinical development, the first in man studies and first registries of the revolutionary AF treatment put forward by the consortium. The first pilot studies show that the treatment is safe, effective and efficient.
