The EIT Information Day was held for the 2018 Call for Proposals for two new Innovation Communities, EIT Urban Mobility and EIT Manufacturing.
The EIT Information Day gave innovators interested in forming one of these Innovation Communities an unrivalled opportunity to hear what’s needed and what’s expected directly from representatives of the EIT, the existing Innovation Communities, and several Directorates General from the European Commission.
The full-house, and the hundreds more joining via the livestream, watched presentations, followed panel discussions and received information that gave useful guidance to potential applicants in submitting high quality and successful proposals. In addition to hearing first-hand about the EIT’s mission, its future post 2021, the underlying philosophy of the 2018 Call for Proposals, the evaluation process and the Call roadmap, the principles of funding, monitoring and evaluating were also presented.
The entire event was streamed live; recordings of each session are available on the EIT's Youtube Channel.
