For the call for KICs in ‘Food for Future’, does the thematic area focus only on securing the supply for the future or can it also include the supply of biomass for the bio industries? | European Institute of Innovation & Technology (EIT)

For the call for KICs in ‘Food for Future’, does the thematic area focus only on securing the supply for the future or can it also include the supply of biomass for the bio industries?

Answer: 

Each theme is described in the thematic factsheets annexed to the EIT’s Strategic Innovation Agenda (SIA) 2014-2020 and the Call text. These were broadly designed on purpose as innovation stakeholders are best placed to decide which angle to focus on when tackling a societal challenge.

As stated in the Call text (page 13) “On the grounds of equal treatment, the EIT Governing Board members and EIT staff cannot give applicants a prior opinion on the eligibility, quality or any other relevant element of a specific proposal.”
