“I am delighted and honoured to have been elected Chairman by my fellow Governing Board members. I am very much looking forward to taking on this challenge with my colleagues at the EIT headquarters and together continue to shape our first three Knowledge and Innovation Communities (KICs)”, says Alexander von Gabain. “After successfully seed-investing into the first three KICs, the next four years will be decisive for the EIT as we will present and start implementing our first Strategic Innovation Agenda (SIA).
The third EIT/KIC Entrepreneurship Workshop was organised on 14 February 2010 at the EIT Headquarters in Budapest, bringing together 21 participants from the three KICs, the EIT as well as the European Commission. Building on the outcomes of the two previous workshops in September and December 2010, participants were invited to share the progress made in terms of the KICs’ entrepreneurial activities, and to discuss a common toolbox as well as specific EIT initiatives in support of entrepreneurship.
