28. Is implicit and tacit knowledge as well as informal learning represented in the knowledge triangle approach of the EIT? Is non-formal learning recognised?


The portfolio of KIC education activities can cover a wide range of target groups at different levels – including degree education, but also life-long learning, summer and winter schools, professional and executive training, wider citizen engagement as well as non-degree and non-formal education. Non-formal learning plays important role in the EIT education dimension. The EIT, together with its KICs is working on extending its flagship initiative in education – the EIT Label – beyond degree education and in the future the EIT Label should be extended to professional (or other non-formal) certification as well.
