Annual Report 2018
"Harvest for Value"
The EIT Digital 2018 Annual Report, titled "Harvest for Value", sets out EIT Digital's achievements across its pan-European ecosystem in the areas of innovation and entrepreneurial education.
In all our key domains, ecosystem, innovation and entrepreneurship, and entrepreneurial education, we have seen growth, thus expanding the reach and impact of EIT Digital. Our activities do not only demonstrate the richness of our further growing EIT Digital ecosystem, they also prove our ability as a community to harvest this richness and deliver important value to Europe through our digital innovations and entrepreneurial talents.
"For a strong digital Europe"
EIT Digital aims at global impact through European innovation fuelled by entrepreneurial talent and digital technology. EIT Digital firmly believes that the future of innovation is ecosystems. EIT Digital supports the members of its pan-European ecosystem to be effective in today’s complex open innovation ecosystems in order to address some of their specific innovation needs related to digital innovation and education. Examples include finding the right partners to bring technology to the market, supporting the scale-up of digital technology ventures, attracting talent and developing their digital knowledge and skills. In order to do so, EIT Digital operates a panEuropean network of 16 innovation centres where students, researchers, engineers, business developers and entrepreneurs physically come together to cocreate the digital future.
Digital Transformation of European Industry
A Policy Perspective

This digital transformation of all industry sectors will revolutionise the structure and governance of markets and lead to a significant reconfiguration of work and employment. On the one hand, integrating digital innovations in business strategies is an essential means of creating value. Further, the digital transformation allows deep connection of systems creating seamless digitalised value chains with increased efficiency.
