The EIT Regional Innovation Scheme accelerates climate innovation across Europe. EIT RIS facilitates connections into our established EIT Climate-KIC innovation hubs, currently in nine countries, which in turn act as a bridge into our pan-European network. 

In Portugal, we work in collaboration with a number of organisations, including Nova University of Lisbon, one of the country’s most prestigious universities, and Building Global Innovators, a deep technology accelerator. An up-and-coming start-up hub and host of the world-renowned Web Summit, Portugal is an ideal terrain to explore how climate innovation can spur economic development. Our programmes in Portugal focus on accelerating early-stage cleantech startups and developing urban sustainability solutions.
