Science BusinessThe European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT) has chosen climate change, sustainable energy and information and communication technology as the subjects of its first three programmes, following a hearing with six short-listed candidates in Budapest yesterday (16 December).

“Today is a great day for innovation in Europe,” said Martin Schuurmans, chair of the EIT’s governing body, announcing the three winning bids to form Knowledge and Innovation Communities (KICs). These entities, each co-located at several centres in Europe, will bring together industry and academics to work together and become world experts in each of their fields. They will be reference points not only for other academic groups, but also for companies and for investment in these areas of technology.
