University of Tartu participates in European Manufacturing Innovation Network

On November 7, the inaugural event of the knowledge and innovation community “EIT Manufacturing” in Paris took place. EIT Manufacturing is one of eight knowledge and innovation communities in the European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT).

Head of the University of Tartu Grant Office Taivo Raud said that EIT Manufacturing wishes to contribute to the leap in the development of manufacturing technology by putting the technology developed in labs into everyday use. The university’s strengths in this cooperation are robotics, smart materials and technology related to the development of artificial intelligence, and it hopes to reach marketable products in these fields. “Participation in this network clearly has an invigorating effect,” said Raud. “The university’s membership also creates new opportunities for Estonian companies.” The university also participates in the network’s training activities.

The European Institute for Innovation and Technology (EIT) is an independent body funded by the European Union and designed to boost Europe’s competitiveness and innovation capacity in manufacturing and service sectors with great added value. As of 2018, the University of Tartu also participates in the urban mobility network and is a full member of the EIT Health innovation community that focuses on the field of health. EIT will increase the funding of new networks to up to 50 million euros in the next three years.
