The European Institute of Technology (EIT) is a proposal adopted on 22 February 2006 by the European Commission to the European Council intended to be a new flagship research university for excellence in higher education, research and innovation. The initial concept for an European Institute of Technology was based on the example of the Cambridge-based Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and its combination of world class education, research, and deep engagement in effective innovation processes.
In its proposal for an EIT the European Commission put forward a two-level structure which combines both a bottom-up and a top-down approach:
- A governance structure which is based on a Governing Board (GB).
- Knowledge and Innovation Communities (KICs).
- Lisbon Strategy
- Framework Programmes for Research and Technological Development
- Knowledge triangle
- European Research Council (ERC)
- European Research Area (ERA)
- Directorate-General for Research
- Directorate-General of the Joint Research Centre (European Commission)
- European Research Advisory Board (EURAB)
- European Institute of Technology official website
- Original press release on the European Institute of Technology from the European Union
- Wroclaw proposition to establish a European Institute of Technology
