What is EIT Digital?
EIT Digital is one of the three Knowledge and Innovation Communities that were set up by EIT, the EU’s Institute of Innovation and Technology in 2010. The purpose of EIT Digital is to support innovation in the field of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT). The community consists of 7 nodes and 2 associate partner groups (a local network of universities, research institutes and ICT companies), with the aim of integrating educational, business and research activities. At the moment, Berlin, Eindhoven, Helsinki, London, Paris, Stockholm, and Trento are the full members of EIT Digital. Besides, Madrid and Budapest are associate members of the community. The Budapest Associate Partner Group at ELTE coordinates the cooperation of Hungarian ICT researches, business partners and higher education programmes in the field of ICT.
The EIT Digital Budapest Associate Partner Group consists of Eötvös Loránd University, Budapest University of Technology and Economics, Ericsson Hungary, Cisco Systems Hungary, Nokia Solutions and Networks Hungary, and GE Healthcare Hungary.
With the Research and Technology Innovation Fund, in 2012 the National Development Agency issued a call for proposals on the promotion of Hungary’s participation in the EIT KICs and its cooperation with the EIT KICs partners. In the call for proposals, the EIT Digital Budapest Associate Partner Group, with the ELTE University, the BME University and Cisco Systems Ltd as its members, has been granted HUF 1 billion funding by the State. The funding was used to set up the local CLC and served as a catalyst for the research projects carried out between January 2013 and the first half of 2014.
