34. Is there a difference in the funding for the different strands of activities?


There is no pre-determined breakdown for a KIC on how to spend their EIT funding. However, the EIT SIA sets certain earmarked amounts, e.g. 10-15 % should be spent on the EIT Regional Innovation Scheme (EIT RIS).

Joint activities between EIT KICs (i.e. Cross-KIC activities), the EIT’s new activity for boosting innovation in Higher Education Institutions and EIT RIS activities may receive EIT funding for up to 100% of the eligible expenditure.
