Future EU funding possibilities
by Ingemar Pongratz
The European Institute of Technology (EIT) has recently informed that additional funding opportunities will soon be available for applicants. In this case the EIT will open a call for Knowledge and Innovation Communities (KIC) in the areas of FOOD and Manufactoring.
The 2016 call for KIC’s include novel aspects based on the experienced that the EIT has obtained from previous calls.
The coming KIC call will follow the basic administrative principles from Horizon 2020 and in addition will follow a simplified evaluation model. In addition, the competition will be increased by limiting the number of partners and thus increase the number of proposals.
The European Commission is planning to organize information sessions and in addition has published a dedicated webpage with information regarding the 2016 KIC call to support applicants.
The call for KIC will be launched in the beginning of 2016 and the deadline is expected to be after the summer of 2016. The final information to the successful applicants is expected to be ready by the end of 2016.
In addition, the EU Commission has informed that an additional KIC call will be launched in 2018 in the area of Urban Mobility.
