WHAT IS EIT AND KICs?
The EIT is an independent body of the European Union set up in 2008 to spur innovation and entrepreneurship across Europe to overcome some of its greatest challenges. It brings together the so-called ‘knowledge triangle’ of business, education and research to form dynamic cross-border partnerships – Knowledge and Innovation Communities, KICs - that develop innovative products and services, start new companies, and train a new generation of entrepreneurs.
Knowledge and Innovation Communities (KICs) are a unique type of partnerships within the European innovation landscape and develop innovative products and services, foster new business, encourage growth and train a new generation of entrepreneurs. Characterised by a high degree of integration, a long-term perspective, efficient governance, the colocation model and their entrepreneurial culture, the KICs aim to increase Europe’s capacity for innovation by bringing together leading companies, universities and research labs.
