46. The sector is very diverse from cultural heritage to cinema, from architecture to performing arts, what will be the "glue" that EIT would value for this new KIC?


CCSIs are sectors with a high growth potential, many grass-roots initiatives, and strong citizen appeal. They are strongly embedded in their local and regional ecosystems. However, CCSIs remain very fragmented with many innovators and creators lacking much needed entrepreneurial and innovation skills. These bottlenecks could be well tackled by an EIT KIC thanks to the EIT innovation model that is based on the knowledge triangle integration approach, a long-term perspective, and place-based approach.
