New EIT 'joint hub' to promote innovation in Latvia

The European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT), a body of the European Union, has opened a new joint hub in Latvia which it says "is set to take regional innovation to the next level and provide a one-stop shop for local talent and entrepreneurs for EIT Community opportunities in education, business creation and innovation."

Antons Adamovičs, the EIT Community Officer (ECO) of the new EIT Community RIS Hub in Latvia, presented the EIT Community’s plans for 2024 at a launch event in early March (below) outlining how the EIT will support initiatives that foster the development of innovators in Latvia, including entrepreneurs, scientists, VCs, startups, private ecosystem builders, public organisations and academia.

“We have kick-started a groundbreaking effort to develop a gravity center and align all the ecosystem around importance of developing knowledge-based economy as a strategy for Latvia. With the support of the EIT, we will put energy into developing approaches and propose instruments and other tools (both financial and non-financial) to improve the ecosystem while continuously caring about quality of opportunities for the individuals that are entering the innovation ecosystem and ensuring it provides the necessary tools at various stages of development of businesses,” said Adamovičs.

The EIT Regional Innovation Scheme (EIT RIS) was launched in 2014 to enhance innovation performance in countries with ‘emerging’ or ‘modest’ innovation scores according to the European Innovation Scoreboard
