Join thematic cross-border innovation communities

Be part of Knowledge and Innovation Communities (KICs) bringing together business, education and research organisations to find and commercialise solutions to pressing global challenges.

Do you want to be part of innovation partnerships across industries?

The European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT), which is part of the EU’s research and innovation programme Horizon Europe, fosters cross-border collaboration and innovation across Europe by connecting academia, research and industry.

Its thematic Knowledge and Innovation Communities (KICs) bring together academia, business and research partners to work on societal challenges in fields such as climate change, sustainable energy, digitalisation, health and raw materials. 

The KICs carry out research projects, innovation initiatives, entrepreneurship support, education and training programmes, and business development activities and facilitate knowledge transfer from academia and research to the business sector. 

We can help you determine whether the EIT’s Knowledge and Innovation Communities offer opportunities that suit your organisation and guide you in joining them.
