What is EIT InnoEnergy

EIT InnoEnergy is the sustainable energy engine of Europe. Founded in 2010 by the European Institute of Innovation & Technology with the mission of accelerating Europe’s energy transition. Nowadays, we bring together ideas, inventors, students and industry.

EIT InnoEnergy Master School is the go-to destination for current and aspiring sustainable energy engineers. All our programmes are double-degree two-location programmes which are offered at some of the highest-ranked technical universities and business schools across Europe. As a result, students are trained in innovation & entrepreneurship in addition to top engineering skills.

At the EIT InnoEnergy Career Centre, we provide expert professional support to ensure our talents make a smooth and empowered transition into the labour market. This is achieved through activities such as the Career Impact Programme. The Career Impact Programme is a 12-month professional development journey that is fully aligned with EIT InnoEnergy Master’s programmes.
