CWI houses a new innovation space of partner EIT Digital, which was opened on 2 November. With this new location in the financial heart of the Netherlands, EIT Digital wants to boost the development of FinTech, together with its partners in the Netherlands and Europe.
Jos Baeten (CWI Director) and Patrick Essers (Node Director EIT Digital in the Netherlands) open EIT Digital’s new Innovation Space at CWI.
The new satellite location offers EIT Digital a strong base to help FinTech companies and to develop new digital FinTech initiatives. The reason for opening a second EIT Digital location in the Netherlands is a strongly felt wish of the EIT Digital’s partners Bright Cape, CWI, ING Bank, and TNO who cooperate in various FinTech innovation activities within the pan-European ecosystem of EIT Digital. The Municipality of Amsterdam supports this and CWI is offering the new location.

Its mission is to foster digital technology innovation and entrepreneurial talent for economic growth and quality of life in Europe. It brings together entrepreneurs from a partnership of over 130 European corporations, SMEs, start-ups, universities and research institutes.
