12. How big should a consortium be?

Answer: 

The call criteria for the Call for Proposals was published here and the required size of the applicant consortia is 50 partners at proposal stage. The required size of the applicant consortia will have to be met during the submission phase and will have to be maintained during the evaluation, designation and start-up phase. Following the start-up phase, the KIC will have to ensure openness to new partners, which is an important element of the EIT KIC model. All information and any update relating to the EIT Call for KIC Proposals will be posted on the EIT’s call page.
