52. What’s the interest of an organisation to be a founding member of the KIC?

Answer: 

As a founding member of the KIC you will have the possibility to co-design the partnership and to shape a realistic, specific, measurable, achievable and time-dependent strategy to select and address concrete challenges. Experience shows that founding members of the KICs very often remain active partners in the partnership, not only in the first years but also in the long-term.
