Knowledge and Innovation Communities
The European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT) aims to enhance Europe’s ability to innovate, and to transform good ideas into new products or services. The EIT aims to achieve this by bringing together leading players from: 1) higher education; 2) research and; 3) business within Knowledge and Innovation Communities (KICs).
KICs carry out a whole range of activities, covering the entire innovation chain – including training and education programmes, reinforcing the journey from research to the market, innovation projects and business incubators. KICs should react in an effective and flexible way to new challenges and changing environments.
The EIT has published a presentation on the 2016 KIC call for proposals in the fields of Food for Future and Added Value Manufacturing on its webpage. It includes the major key dates for the launch and closure of the call, as well as for the info day:
