Information Day for the 2016 Call for Knowledge and Innovation Communities Proposals

The European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT) organised an Information Day for the 2016 Call for Knowledge and Innovation Communities (KICs) Proposals.

The main objectives of the conference was to provide participants with information on the Call and guidance to potential applicants in submitting high quality and successful proposals.
