EIT Water KIC workshop

Take part in determining the Danish priorities for an EIT Water KIC Consortium

This workshop will help set the priorities for the forthcoming EIT Water KIC (Knowledge Innovation Community). KICs strengthen international innovation collaboration and the EIT Water KIC will cover the broad areas of Water, Marine and Maritime Sectors and Ecosystems. The winning consortium will launch its activities in 2026. As Denmark plans to have a central role in the forthcoming KIC, we would like to have your help in shaping the cornerstones of the international outlook. This input will guide the thematic priorities and will help set the international partnership. We are preparing for the application to be submitted in mid 2025. The Grundfos Foundation, Aarhus University and Water Valley Denmark are establishing a Water KIC project development office at Aarhus University. It is this office that leads the workshop and will take on board your input.
