The EIT has mentioned in its preliminary information that less emphasis needs to be given to the legal and organizational set-up in the 2018 call. What does this mean besides the minimum requirements outlined in the evaluation criteria?

Answer: 

Indeed, the evaluation criteria have changed, giving higher importance to strategy and impact. Moreover, the EIT’s expectations on the level of operational readiness of a proposal are reduced compared to previous calls as reflected in the points of the technical evaluation criteria (p.4). The start-up phase could be used to get the Innovation Community operationally ready.
