EIT Manufacturing, established in 2019, has become a nexus of industry giants, top academics, research institutions, and small to medium enterprises (SMEs), including startups and scaleups, across Europe. EIT Manufacturing RIS EVO-R 2023 initiative aims to assist innovative manufacturing firms to upgrade their offerings from the demonstration stage (Technology Readiness Level – TRL 7) to market-level acceptance (TRL 8-9).

The EIT Manufacturing RIS EVO-R 2023 program is open to research teams, SMEs, startups, universities, research and technology organizations, and university-owned research foundations based in EIT RIS-eligible countries (full list here).
