What unites us is that we have decided to take personal action against the societal, environmental and economic challenges humanity is facing. Most of us have no access to the resources available to governments, corporations and large NGOs, so we tackle these challenges with what we have: ourselves, our own bodies and minds. Many of us are out to innovate, but not in the sense of making new gadgets. We aspire to a deep societal fix, for tackling the fundamental problems of expanding individual freedom, establishing a fair social deal, crafting an environmentally sustainable society. - See more at:

EAI responds to an EU call for Action
Europe enjoys a high standard of living, among the highest levels of education, and one of the greatest concentrations of wealth in the developed world. Yet, by any conventional measure, Europe lags behind other developed regions in innovation.
A key reason for this, simply stated, is fragmentation. Europe’s institutions, societies, universities and governments, while part of the same EU system, are still made up of a vast variety of different organisations. Different structures representing diverse communities at times working in parallel, at other times working in opposition, mean that efficiencies, information sharing, and important connections are harder to achieve. Adding to this impediment is the mindset of ICT innovators which tends toward insular behaviour, stifling the explosive potential of innovative ideas, and creating artificial barriers for smaller innovators which have the potential to be the drivers of innovation.

An Organisation Driven by its members
EAI’s mission is to drive innovation in emerging information and communication technology (ICT) enabled areas by decreasing fragmentation between key participants in the innovation cycle and by facilitating communication, engagement and collaboration from the grassroots. From education to business to government, EAI provides a bottom-up, grassroots forum for participants to contribute knowledge, communicate views, and collaborate together to advance their respective innovation initiatives.
True to its guiding vision of being a grassroots driven organisation, EAI cultivates and supports the open knowledge transfer and engagement among its member community.  Through a variety of conventional methods such as conferences, publications and Web 2.0 tools, a vibrant community of content sharing, dissemination and feedback flourishes. Much of the engagement and idea exchange occurs through the individual SIB portals and within the framework of the Innovation Cycle.
