Framework of Guidance for the EITâ€™s 2014 Call for KICs
The European Institute for Innovation and Technology (EIT) has publishedÂ the Framework of Guidance for the EITâ€™s 2014 Call for KICs and the EITâ€™s Financial Regulation.
The EIT spurs innovation and entrepreneurship across the European Union. To further enhance its impact and to incentivise the innovations needed to meet new societal challenges, the EIT will gradually expand its portfolio of Knowledge and Innovation Communities (KICs) from 2014 to 2020.
The first two new KICs, to be established in 2014, will address the thematic fields of:
- Innovation for healthy living and active ageing; and
- Raw materials: sustainable exploration, extraction, processing, recycling and substitution.
