The winning bid from the pan-European consortium InnoLife will have a focus on healthy living and active ageing and will engage some 140 European core or associated partners from universities, research centers and leading businesses. Uppsala University, KTH Royal Institute of Technology and Karolinska Institutet are among the 50 core partners of this KIC and SciLifeLab is an associated organization.
– This will open up new avenues in education, outreach and innovation within the broader health sector and there will certainly be great opportunities for coordination and aligning with the SciLifeLab mission and activities, said Stefan Bertilsson, Scientific Director and SciLifeLab representative during the preparation of the KIC proposal.
The EIT is an independent EU body set up in 2008 to spur innovation and entrepreneurship across Europe to overcome some of its greatest challenges. It brings together leading universities, research labs and companies to form the dynamic cross-border KIC partnerships that develop innovative products and services, start new companies, and train a new generation of entrepreneurs.
