    What makes a KIC a KIC? How have the different EIT Knowledge and Innovation Communities (KICs) found unique ways to best organise the knowledge triangle in order to achieve impact on the European Innovation landscape through excellent partnerships, innovative funding models and project portfolio? How can these impacts be measured? How will the future of the EIT capitalise on the multiplier capacity of individuals in spreading the expertise gained throughout their relation with the EIT and its KICs? What is the current engagement with regions, other national and EU instruments succeeding? How can synergies be created and further explored? And what specific future measures can be taken? Key questions not only for the EIT to learn from and to use as a basis for developing and preparing for its next wave of Knowledge & Innovation Communities (KICs) and its innovation agenda, but also for the wider innovation community. This conference will serve as a forum to answer precisely these questions, within the framework of a wider discussion on the future of EU innovation policies and the integration of the so called Knowledge Triangle (business, research, higher education) both within the EU and globally.
