    student to entrepreneur

    idea to product lab to customer

  • Our strategy to boost innovation in EuropeFacilitate the development of European ecosystems where research, business and

    education come together to find sustainable solutions to societal challenges by:

    • Creating interconnected knowledge and creativity hotspots

    • Fostering talent: entrepreneurs and students

  • • High degree of integration: each KIC is an

    independent legal entity, gathering world-

    class partners from across the knowledge

    triangle based on a contractual

    relationship/partnership with the EIT.

    • Long-term strategic approach: each KIC is set

    up for a minimum of 7 years to eventually

    become sustainable.

    • Autonomy and flexibility: to determine

    organisational structure and activities

    governed by a Board of KIC partner

    organisations.

    • Effective governance: run by a CEO and a

    lean management team at central and co-

    location centre level.

  • • Smart funding & high degree of

    commitment of partners: EIT funding to

    KICs is max. 25% of their total budget over

    time with 75% to be attracted from other

    sources, both public and private.

    • Culture: KICs are shaped by strong

    entrepreneurial mindsets and cultures.

    • The co-location model: each KIC consists

    of 5-7 world class innovation hotspots

    building and leveraging on existing

    European capacities.

    • Results & high impact oriented activities:

    KICs implement a Business Plan with

    measurable deliverables, results and

    impact.
