HEInnovate for EIT HEI Initiative

The third call of the EIT HEI Initiative is now open and the interested consortia can submit their applications until 28 February 2023.

In order to prepare a successful application and create your Innovation Vision Action Plan, we invite you to a webinar, which will guide you through the HEInnovate self-assessment tool, a mandatory step in the application process. The webinar will provide an overview on the scope of the tool and run you through the detailed steps of the self-assessment. The webinar takes place on Wednesday, 7 December 2022, from 11:00 am to 12:15 pm CET.


Why is it important?

The use of the HEInnovate self-assessment tool allows Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) to explore their innovation and entrepreneurial potential. It aims at encouraging HEIs to reflect on their own practices to boost an entrepreneurial culture and mind-set that inspires people to transform their expertise into tangible, societal value. All pilot projects selected for funding under the HEI Initiative are required to create an Innovation Vision Action Plan (IVAP) as part of their application. The IVAP should provide a long-term vision towards increasing the innovation and entrepreneurial capacity within the corresponding HEIs, at institutional level. The IVAP will be designed based on HEInnovate self-assessment for each HEI consortium member, in order to drive the choice of actions proposed for funding and institutional change within the HEIs. For more information about the requirements and the application process, consult the call for proposals.


About the Initiative 

The EIT HEI Initiative aims at boosting entrepreneurial capacity and innovation potential of HEIs. The newly announced call will mobilise up to EUR 12 million of EIT funding for HEIs and their partners. The new call integrates a special focus on capacity building and training talents in deep tech domains, supporting the objectives of the new European Innovation Agenda and contributing to one of its flagship actions, the Deep Tech Talent Initiative.
