EIT Digital Accelerator

London, UK
Sep 2016

EIT Digital seeks to generate significant innovations from top European research results. Our objective is incubation, market uptake and rapid growth of these innovations.

As such, we focus our investments on a limited number of innovation areas that we have selected with respect to European relevance and leadership potential - the Innovation Action Lines. We currently have five action lines: Digital Industry, Digital Cities, Digital Wellbeing, Digital Infrastructure and Digital Finance.

Each Innovation Action Line is a portfolio of activities: on the one hand, open innovation activities carried out by the EIT Digital Partners, and on the other hand, fast-growing technology startups that are ready to scale commercially. These entrepreneurial projects are grounded in game-changing research results, high-profile technologies and disruptive business strategies.

Once the activities are selected, the EIT Digital Accelerator steps in to fully manage the innovation and entrepreneurship funnel, supporting the growth of the activities so that they become successful European products, services or ventures. In addition to coaching the business, the Accelerator helps them with pan-European Access-to-Market (customer acquisition) and Access-to-Finance (fundraising).
