We are approaching you about a Call for expression of interest recently launched by the European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT), and that might be of interest to you.
The call concern the selection of eight new members of the EIT Governing Board.
The EIT Governing Board consists of 12 European innovation leaders appointed by the European Commission for a four-year non-renewable mandate. It provides the EIT’s strategic leadership and is independent in its decision-making. Specifically, it is responsible for the selection, designation and evaluation of the EIT’s Knowledge and Innovation Communities (KICs).
The call is open to leading academics, business representatives, entrepreneurs, innovators and researchers.
The EIT total proposed budget under Horizon Europe is of €3 billion, which represents an increase of €600 million or 25% compared to the current period 2014-2020. The proposed EIT Strategic Innovation Agenda for 2021-2027 also foresees a new specific measure aimed at supporting the innovation capacity of Higher Education Institutions, with a proposed budget of €400 million.
It is therefore important that the academic community is represented in the EIT Governing Board and we recommend you to share this call internally and encourage your leading academics, researchers and innovators to apply.
