Will the EIT designate a KIC if only one proposal is received?

Answer: 

The criteria for the 2018 call and the conditions of the call will be laid out in the call text to be approved later on in 2017. The decision to designate a KIC is expected to be taken by the EIT’s Governing Board in December 2018 and cannot be anticipated at this stage. However, the EIT will only designate a KIC in a thematic area if the best proposal meets the overarching excellence criterion, regardless of the number of applications.
