EIT launches competition for new KICs in Urban Mobility and Manufacturing
The EIT launched a competition for new Innovation Communities in the areas of urban mobility (EIT Urban Mobility) and added value manufacturing (EIT Manufacturing).
EIT Manufacturing will strengthen and increase the competitiveness of Europe’s manufacturing industry. The goal of this new Innovation Community is to transform today's forms of industrial production to become more knowledge intensive, sustainable, trans-sectorial and low-emission. EIT Urban Mobility will ensure a greener, more inclusive, safer and smarter urban mobility system. With over 70 % of EU citizens living in urban areas, there is a paramount need to invest in up-to-date urban transport systems.
The competition is open until July 2018 and the winning partnerships will be announced in December 2018. The proposals should be submitted by partners from business, higher education and research institutions to tackle societal challenges by developing innovative products and services.
The EIT is organising an Information Day for the 2018 Call for Proposals in Brussels on 13 February.
