In January 2018, the European Innovation & Technology Institute will open a call for a new Knowledge & Innovation Community (KIC) in the area of Added-value Manufacturing. To help potential applicants in their preparations, the EIT is organising a webinar on 7 September at 10:30.
The aim of such KIC is to transform today's industrial forms of production towards more knowledge intensive, sustainable, low-emission, trans-sectoral manufacturing and processing technologies, to realise innovative products, processes and services.
A KIC in added-value manufacturing could have a very important role and impact at regional level: fostering the creation of interconnected regional clusters with local transfers and collaboration, developing competences in high-end manufacturing technologies, and developing excellence in manufacturing technologies would be the key missions of a KIC at regional level.
To know more about this call and take part in the webinar visit the EIT website. Prior registration is required.
