Peter Olesen to become next Chairman of the EIT Governing Board
The mandate of the Second Chairman of the EIT Governing Board, Alexander von Gabain, will expire on 31 July 2014. At its latest meeting on 13 March 2014, the Governing Board therefore elected his successor: Peter Olesen. Mr. Olesen takes up his chairmanship at an important point in time as the current call for new KICs will close on 10 September 2014. These will be the first KICs to be established within the framework of HORIZON 2020. After the evaluation procedure, the final decision on the successful KICs will be made by the EIT Governing Board. The members of the Governing Board intend to complete the selection process and designate the two KICs by December 2014.
