How are we organised?

We connect global and local, small and large partners from the private, public and academic sectors. The split across the three sectors is approximately 50% business, 30% academic and 20% public and not for profit.

We operate through 13 centres across Europe and a headquarters in London.

We receive funding from academic and private sector partners as well as an annual grant from the European Commission through its European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT).


Strategically, we are led by our Assembly and Governing Board with representatives from our core partners.

Operationally, we are driven by an Executive Board led by our Chief Executive Officer. Our Supervisory Board oversees the Executive Board.
