European Innovation for Sustainability Summit

Sustainable Minds

The European Innovation for Sustainability Summit, organized and hosted by EIIS, in partnership with the United Nations International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD) and with the institutional support of the European Parliament, is an international event aiming to bring together policy and decision-makers from the public and private sector and civil society to engage in high-level dialogues that encourage support for co-financing solutions, innovative processes, products, and approaches.


The two-day event will feature presentations, roundtables, workshops and an exhibition area to showcase unique testimonies of firms and organizations working towards sustainability.


The Summit operates on the principle that in order to achieve radical innovation in business; companies need to acquire the mindset that guides contemporary artists in the creation of their art.

In 2024, the theme of the Summit is the “Climate, Health, and Nutrition Nexus”.


All of these areas cover complex issues that require close partnership and collaboration across sectors, stakeholders and countries.

The Summit engages participants in high-level dialogues, strategic partnership conversations, knowledge sharing opportunities, industry best practices, and case studies of innovation in different areas as it welcomes thousands of in-person visitors each year.
