In phase one of our Ukraine appeal, from February to August 2022, we facilitated medical equipment donations and targeted financial contributions to the Polish Medical Mission. We raised money to support a tetanus vaccination programme, helping to deliver over 15,000 doses. We have also helped provide Ukraine with over:
- 500,000 vital pieces of equipment like breathing apparatus, mobile X-Ray units and volumetric pumps
- 250,000 dressings
- 131,000 antiseptic kits
- 10,000 first aid kits and tourniquets
- 500 diabetic kits and glucomonitors
The 2023 EIT Strategic Regional Innovation (SRI) Cluster, coordinated by EIT Health, has become a leader of the Work Package dedicated to Ukraine. It is a unique collaboration platform between seven EIT Knowledge and Innovation Communities (KICs) in all countries that have status as moderate or modest innovators in Europe. We cover 22 regions in Central, Eastern, and Southern Europe.
At EIT Community SRI Cluster, we strongly emphasise our dedication to Ukraine by providing its citizens and organisations with numerous opportunities through our programmes. Operating within the EIT Community, these initiatives actively promote and nurture innovation, entrepreneurship, and sustainability throughout Ukraine. By extending funding, mentorship, and training to Ukrainian entrepreneurs and small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), we strive to establish an environment that fosters economic growth, entrepreneurial spirit, and innovation within the country.
