Prof. A. Kolesárová represented the platform on 8 September 2017 at the event of European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT), titled "EIT Food Regional Innovation Scheme (RIS) Networking Event" in Warsaw. This event was led by Prof. Krzysztof Klincewicz, director of the "Co-location centre" for EIT Food in Poland, who outlined the objectives and mission of the EIT. The role of the EIT is to strengthen Europe's innovation capacity and to support the EU's goals of creating sustainable economic growth and jobs. It stimulates entrepreneurial talent, supports new ideas, and canters on leading businesses, universities and research centres within the “knowledge triangle”. These together form dynamic cross-border partnerships called Knowledge and Innovation Communities (KICs).
