How do KICs work? Where can I find information about the KIC model?


A KIC follows a long-term innovative and impact-driven strategy, operating with business logic and a results-oriented approach. It operates across the EU carrying out a whole range of world-class activities covering the entire innovation value chain in a particular field. Each KIC operates through a limited number of innovation hubs across Europe called ‘Co-location Centres’. A KIC is established as a legally and financially structured partnership. The EIT has provided the KICs with a great degree of autonomy to define their legal status, internal organisation and working methods. Information about KIC’s model, the way how KICs operate and KICs activities is available on the EIT website and the websites of the existing KICs:
