This week the EIT revealed new strategic innovation agendas for future KICs for addressing societal challenges. The fields that will be discussed and evaluated during the summer are: added-value manufacturing; ageing population; biotechnology; food for the future; healthy childhood; human learning and learning enhancements; security and safety as well as territory and smart cities. http://eit.europa.eu/press/news-archive/single-view/article/new-themes-for-kics-discussed-at-the-eits-vision-for-the-future-stakeholder-conference.html
It will be interesting to see what impact EIT’s decisions in these matters will have in the future. To what degree can they steer European innovation?
