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?
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.
