Call for KICs

As foreseen in the European Institute of Innovation and Technology’s 2014 Call for KIC proposals, the submission of proposals has now closed.

The EIT evaluation of the proposals will now begin and two new KICs will be designated in December 2014:

  • one KIC addressing the theme of innovation for healthy living and active ageing; and
  • one KIC addressing the theme of raw materials - sustainable exploration, extraction, processing, recycling and substitution.

Information about the selection process and evaluation outcomes will be published on the EIT website after the finalization of the designation process of new KICs.

 

This section of the EIT website is dedicated to the 2014 KIC Call. Here you can find all the latest official updates and documents, as well as FAQs and information about the application process

As established in the EIT’s Strategic Innovation Agenda (SIA) and Horizon 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.

The first step in the process leading up to the designation of the new KICs in December 2014 is the publication of the Selection Criteria. These criteria build on the principles set in the EIT Regulation and the EIT's core values of impact, excellence and partnership. Aligned with the EIT's mission, these criteria will ensure that the designated KICs have all the elements that make a KIC a KIC.

The launch of the Call took place on 14 February 2014. All related documents can be found below.
