As a KIC complementary funding (up to 75%) can also come from other EU funding, how does the EIT ensure there is no ‘double financing’?

Answer: 

The risk of double financing is mitigated by the EIT’s general funding model, where KIC Added Value Activities (KAVA) are directly funded by the EIT and are separated from the KIC complementary activities. As a general principle, the funding of the same cost item by two different funding sources should be clearly prevented, firstly by a KIC partner. For more information on the EIT funding model, please refer to the Principles for Financing, Monitoring and Evaluating KIC activities.
