Knowledge and innovation communities

Knowledge and innovation communities or KICs were launched by the European Union funded Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT). According to EIT Governing Board Member Dr. Daria Golebiowska-Tataj:

KICs operate as network enterprises, with their co-location nodes becoming switching points in the global scene of innovation networks. They are business-driven towards financial self-sustainability so that when the EIT funding may stop, they will continue expanding, equipped with a sound value proposition and business model.
