The European Institute of Innovation and Technology has launched a call for a Knowledge and Innovation Communities (KIC) in the area of raw material.
KICs combine all three sides of the so-called ‘knowledge triangle’: higher education, research and business, and carry out a wide range of activities, covering the entire innovation chain. Therefore, the new KICs are expected to significantly improve Europe’s innovation capacity in the areas of health and raw materials. To assist potential applicants with the preparation of proposals, the EIT had published a number of documents earlier this year, including Selection Criteria for new KICs, Framework of Guidance for the current call and the EIT Financial Regulation. Furthermore, an Information Day will be held in Budapest on 14 March 2014 where further support will be available to applicants willing to submit their proposals before the call deadline on 10 September 2014.
