03. Sep 2021
The European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT) is selecting new members for its Governing Board. Leading academics, entrepreneurs, innovators and researchers are encouraged to apply and help drive Europe’s ability to innovate. The EIT Governing Board consists of 12 European innovation leaders appointed by the European Commission for a four-year mandate as well as a representative of the European Commission. It provides the EIT’s strategic leadership and is independent in its decision-making. Specifically it is responsible for the selection, designation and evaluation of the EIT’s Knowledge and Innovation Communities.
On 1 September 2021, the EIT launched a call for expressions of interest for the selection of new members of the EIT Governing Board. The application deadline is 29 October 2021.
The new members of the Governing Board will be appointed through a Commission Decision, expected in Spring 2022. In its appointments, the Commission gives regard to the balance between higher education, research, innovation and business experience as well as to gender and geographical balance.
