NEW EIT KIC (Knowledge and Innovation Community) focusing on the Cultural & Creative Sectors

As set out in the EIT’s strategy for 2021 to 2027, the Institute will launch a new Knowledge and Innovation Community focusing on the Cultural & Creative Sectors and Industries (CCSI). By uniting cultural and creative organisations from business, higher organisations and research in a pan-European innovation ecosystem, this new EIT KIC will deliver innovative solutions to help the sectors and industries become stronger and more resilient. This new community will train the sector’s future entrepreneurs, power its cutting-edge ventures, and deliver innovative solutions to the challenges facing the sectors. It would also bridge regional innovation gaps and harness the power of these sectors to support Europe’s cultural leadership.

Calls for projects will be launched towards the end of 2021 and close around March 2022.

The EU aims to create more connected and efficient innovation ecosystems to support the scaling of companies, encourage innovation and stimulate cooperation among national, regional and local innovation actors. Innovation ecosystems bring together people or organisations whose goal is innovation, and include the links between resources (such as funds, equipment, and facilities), organisations (such as higher education institutions, research and technology organisations, companies, venture capitalists and financial intermediaries), investors and policymakers. The actions supported by European Innovation Ecosystems complement the actions carried out by the EIC and the European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT), activities across Horizon Europe, initiatives at national, regional and local level as well as private and third sector initiatives.

The Work Programme for European Innovation Ecosystems - including the calls for funding - will be published soon. European Innovation Ecosystems actions are grouped under two destinations: CONNECT and SCALEUP.
