Event Description


The EIT’s new strategy for 2021-27 presents the creation of a new EIT Knowledge and Innovation Community (KIC) in the Cultural & Creative Sectors and Industries. By uniting cultural and creative organisations from business, higher education and research in a pan-European innovation ecosystem, this new EIT KIC will deliver innovative solutions to help these sectors and industries become stronger and more resilient. EIT Culture and Creativity will create new opportunities for entrepreneurial education, innovation, business creation and acceleration to power Europe’s next generation of innovators and creatives.
