Proposal presented on 11 July 2019 by the European Commission updating the legal base of the European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT) and presenting its new strategic innovation agenda for 2021-2027.

Further information:

The European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT) was established in 2008 by Regulation (EC) No 294/2008 (the 'EIT Regulation'). Its purpose is to address major societal challenges by improving the innovation capacity and performance of the EU through the integration of the knowledge triangle of education, research and innovation. The EIT achieves these goals primarily through its Knowledge and Innovation Communities (KICs).

Article 17 of the EIT Regulation requires that every seven years the European Commission submits a proposal for a strategic innovation agenda (SIA) that lays down the priority fields and the long-term strategy and financial needs for the EIT, in line with the applicable Framework Programme for Research and Innovation. For the period 2021-2027, the SIA should thus ensure alignment with the objectives of Horizon Europe as well as the strategic multiannual planning, monitoring and other requirements of that programme, and foster synergies with other relevant programmes.
