About EIT Community

Since 2008, The European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT) has brought together leaders in business, academia, and research to form Knowledge and Innovation Communities (KICs) dedicated to strengthening Europe’s ability to innovate. While each KIC focuses on a specific topic, the KICs join forces to develop cross-cutting initiatives in strategic areas to drive systemic change in Europe and beyond. These initiatives aim to boost innovation, skills development, and job creation – with the belief that together we can create a competitive, inclusive, and sustainable European economy for generations to come.
