The headquarters of EAI is located in Ghent, Belgium. Other offices are located in Bratislava, Slovak Republic, Shanghai, China, and Boston, United States.[10] The office in Bratislava was created in cooperation with the Slovak University of Technology in Bratislava by signing a Memorandum of Understanding.[11]

The organisation was founded by professor Imrich Chlamtac in 2010 and currently EAI has over 150.000 subscribers globally.[12]

The company organizes events and conferences and provides support for the members, trying to improve the rate at which innovations reach the market.
