What is a KIC?
The Knowledge and Innovation Communities (KICs) fall under the European Institute for Innovation & Technology (EIT). Focused on major European themes, they are independent organisations that foster innovation and sustainable growth in Europe. Being major public private partnerships, the KICs bring together education, innovation and entrepreneurship. There are 4 KICs that TU Delft is involved with:

  • Climate-KIC: Climate change and mitigation
  • EIT Raw Materials: Sustainable exploration, extraction, processing, recycling and substitution
  • EIT Digital: Fostering the digital technology innovation
  • EIT Health: Improving the quality of life of Europe’s citizens and the sustainability of healthcare systems
