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. 

Estonia has been part of EIT RIS since 2015. Our main partner is Cleantech ForEst, but we also work with local universities, national authorities and technology parks. Founded in 2016, Cleantech ForEst is a network organisation that aims to accelerate Estonian green innovation. Estonia is a start-up powerhouse and commonly referred to as one of the best places to start and grow a company. Therefore, our focus is on scouting and accelerating promising cleantech teams to support as many success stories as possible.
