Abstract

Communication from the Commission to the European Council: Implementing the renewed partnership for growth and jobs, Developing a knowledge flagship: the European Institute of Technology COM(2006) 77 final
The proposal to establish a European Institute of Technology was put forward in 2005, in the mid-term review of the Lisbon strategy. It has been further developed on the basis of a public consultation which attracted a wide range of valuable contributions.
Although in recent years many initiatives have been launched at national and EU levels to strengthen the capacities of the higher education, research and innovation sectors, and the links between them, there is still much to be done. Europe still falls short in turning R&D results into commercial opportunities, developing a concentration of human, financial and physical resources in research and higher education, promoting an innovation and entrepreneurial culture in research and education, as well as in setting up new organisational models suited to today¿s needs.
The EIT will be an education, research and innovation operator. It will be structured so as to integrate these three areas, which between them hold the keys to the knowledge society. It will set out to attract and keep the best talents in students, researchers and staff in Europe, to work side by side with leading edge business in the development and exploitation of knowledge and research, and to enhance research and innovation management skills generally.
