Objectives of the European Institute of Innovation and Technology easy to endorse

img

The decision establishing the European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT) has been made. The reorganisation of research will reinforce Europe’s capacity to respond to global competition in the fields of research, product development and innovation activities, focusing on renewable energy, climate change and new-generation ICT technologies.

VTT will easily find its role in the European division of responsibilities. Many of our projects support the EU’s climate objectives on the local as well as global level. Our cutting-edge expertise has made us a sought-after partner among operators in the field.

EIT's objectives have been set high. European competence must be translated into commercial products, services and innovations more efficiently than before. Higher education will also have its place in the field of European research and innovation activities.

VTT has also set its goals high. They can be boiled down to a simple promise: VTT creates business from technology.
