Bulgaria is one of our EIT Regional Innovation Scheme (EIT RIS) countries.

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 Bulgaria, we work with the local innovation ecosystem – organisations (e.g. SMEs, universities, research labs, regions, NGOs and cities) and innovators (e.g. students, researchers, entrepreneurs). Our focus is on developing climate innovation through education, acceleration and innovation projects and establishing a structured dialogue with national, regional and local authorities. Our key partner is Cleantech Bulgaria, operating out of Sofia.

We do not have country offices established in EIT RIS countries but are working closely with competitively selected EIT Climate-KIC Hubs.

If you would like to join the EIT Climate-KIC community in your country or have specific queries about how we operate, please get in touch with the EIT RIS Programme Manager at eitris@climate-kic.org.
