The EIT is today publishing the Principles for financing, monitoring and evaluating KIC activities.
The Principles form a key component of the documents prepared by the EIT to help those interested in forming a KIC and should be read alongside the Selection Criteria and the Framework of Guidance.
The EIT Call for KICs Proposals will then be launched on 14 February 2014 followed by an Information Day in Budapest on 14 March 2014.
On 9 December 2014, the EIT announced the the pan-European consortium RawMatTERS as the winner of the 2014 Call for Knowledge and Innovation Communities (KIC) in the area of Raw Materials.
RawMatTERS plans to address serious raw materials supply challenges that the EU is facing. The KIC covers the whole value chain including sustainable exploration, extraction, processing, recycling and substitution, and brings together more than 100 partners from 20 EU Member States.
