The EIT is addressing new societal challenges

Published: April 16, 2011

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?
