EIT Boost Bridge Competition 

EIT Boost Bridge is a pan-European innovation competition for solutions to relevant industrial challenges. The most innovative and impactful technology integration projects, i.e. the creation of a stable and durable bridge between technology inventors and markets, will be recognised on Tuesday, the 6th of December, 2022, in Vienna, Austria.

Under EIT Manufacturing’s headline theme of “Low Environmental Footprint Systems & Circular Economy for Green Manufacturing,” this year’s BoostUp! Bridge programme strives to address obstacles and discover solutions. EIT Manufacturing is cooperating with Whirlpool EMEA, Voestalpine, and EROSKI in this edition to allow participants to solve real-world difficulties using their technology solution.

Competitors will have the opportunity to earn up to €50k to realise their proposal with the corporate partner. Furthermore, EIT Manufacturing will assist start-ups in the winning teams with company growth, market access, and finance.

Caitríona Mordan, our Cluster Manager, will be representing Central Europe as an experienced Juror at this event, which will boost awareness of the Irish Midlands manufacturing sector and allow us to strategically connect with European networks and further promote discussion on innovation.
