If you work with the H2020 programme, you will know that these are very big projects with expected large scale social and economic impacts and, of course, high competition. The key challenge is to build a solid business case around a visionary idea, leading to a coherent and ambitious research and innovation agenda for the EU and its Member states for the next 10 years.

Your chance to make a real difference through EIT´s Innovation Communities!

The European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT) is an independent EU body contributing to the objectives set out in Horizon 2020, in particular by addressing societal challenges in a manner that is complementary to other initiatives in these areas. EIT brings together the "knowledge triangle" of business (including SMEs), education and research to form dynamic cross-border partnerships, the so-called Knowledge and Innovation Communities (KICs).  These KICs strengthen cooperation among European innovators and entrepreneurs, and they create favourable environments for creative ideas and new solutions to emerge. Since 2010 six KICs have been launched: EIT Climate-KIC; EIT Digital; EIT InnoEnergy; EIT Health; EIT Raw Materials and EIT Food.

In 2018 EIT is launching two new KICs:

1) EIT Manufacturing strengthening and increasing the competitiveness of Europeกฏs manufacturing industryHigh value or added-value manufacturingProduct and service innovationProcess excellenceHigh brand recognitionEnvironmentally friendly solutionsSustainability2) EIT Urban Mobility smart, green and integrated urban transportGreener, more inclusive, safer, smarterNew mobility conceptsTransport system safety and securityAir pollution and noise reductionUrban, spatial planningJob creation and sustainable growth

In order to establish the next two EIT Innovation Communities, a new call for proposal was launched in the beginning of 2018. Submission of project proposals is open until 12 July 2018. Proposals can be submitted by a core group of up to 50 educational, research and business partners -  at least three independent partner organisations established in at least three different Member States.  The winners - one group for each field receives the mandate and significant resources to start and manage one of the newly established KICs.
