EIT Community Booster: the new European initiative for startups is launched

EIT Community Booster: prende il via la nuova iniziativa europea per le startup thumbnail

EIT Community Booster is the new program created to support the high-impact initiatives of New European Bauhaus. The initiative was launched by European Institute of Innovation and Technology and five of its Knowledge & Innovation Communities. The goal, therefore, is to support innovative projects and teams capable of developing high-impact solutions by integrating sustainability, aesthetics and inclusion.

EIT Community Booster kicks off

The New European Bauhaus was launched by the European Commission and translates the Green Deal in a tangible and positive experience. The EIT Community Booster was created with the aim of identifying and supporting startups and scaleups that integrate the fundamental dimensions of the New European Bauhaus.

These dimensions are:

  • sustainability, from climate objectives to circularity, passing through zero pollution and biodiversity;
  • aesthetics, quality of experience and style, in addition to functionality;
  • inclusion, from the enhancement of diversity, to the guarantee of accessibility and availability.
  • To participate in the initiative, it is therefore possible to submit a specific application. The twenty companies selected will receive support for the growth of the value of 50 thousand euros in grants and services. Applications can be submitted via the official site from which it is also possible to obtain all the information on the project. Finally, it should be noted that there is time until next December 17th to be able to submit your application.
