EIT Strategic Innovation Agenda: political agreement in the Council

The Council today reached agreement (partial general approach) on the future Strategic Innovation Agenda (SIA) of the European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT).

The EIT's budget is provided for in the future EU framework programme (Horizon Europe) and is linked to next EU's financial framework programme (MFF).

Blaženka Divjak, Croatian Minister for Science and Education, states: "Today's agreement paves the way for more open and more efficient Knowledge and Innovation Communities across the EU. It introduces a streamlined monitoring system that will ensure greater transparency and accountability. We now stand ready to negotiate a swift deal with the European Parliament."
