50. Who is going to choose the winner from the CCSI KIC applications?

Answer: 

Following the deadline of the EIT Call for Proposals, admissibility, eligibility and exclusion checks will be performed for each proposal. Proposals fulfilling all requirements will be evaluated by an independent evaluation committee composed of external experts, in line with the Horizon Europe rules. Following the approval of the evaluation results by the EIT Governing Board, the representatives of those proposals reaching the threshold will be invited to a hearing of the EIT Governing Board. At the evaluation stage of the Governing Board Hearing, the overall strategic rationality and consistency of the EIT KIC model presented in the proposal will be assessed. The proposal receiving the highest number of points can be designated by the EIT Governing Board.
