Institutionalised partnerships are R&I partnerships between the European Union, EU member states and/or industry. They are based on a long term dimension and on a need for high integration based on Articles 185 or 187 TFEU and the EIT Regulation for KICs. They are only implemented where other parts of the Horizon Europe Programme would not achieve the objectives or expected impacts.
Institutionalised partnerships are based on a Council Regulation (Article 187) or a Decision by the European Parliament and Council (Article 185). They are implemented by dedicated structures created for that purpose.
EIT Knowledge and Innovation Communities (KICs) are also institutionalised partnerships. EIT KICs aim to address skills shortages ands are already established under Horizon 2020. Key partners in EIT KICs are higher education institutions, research organisations, companies and other stakeholders.
