EIT Knowledge and Innovation Communities


TU Berlin is the main partner in two of the six knowledge and innovation communities (KICs) currently running. The KICs receive more than 80 million euros in funding from the European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT). Thanks to its participation in the two KICs EIT Digital and Climate-KIC, TU Berlin has become one of the most successful universities in this European competition. KICs act as funding organizations themselves. As a network of centers from across Europe, they produce calls for proposals from partner organizations and cooperating third parties. The KIC programs are aimed at actors operating in the 'knowledge triangle' of education, research and business. The aim is to push forward urgently needed innovation through applied research, investment, training programs and technological transfer.

EIT Digital


EIT Digital promotes the market uptake of research-based digital technologies. This includes innovative project activities, support for startups,  certified pan-European master's and doctoral programs and professional training courses at the EIT Digital Professional School. TU Berlin is active in all areas of the KIC and has played a successful role in projects that develop digital applications for civic participation (Piazza, Civic Budget), government communications with displaced people (ERICS) and disruptive tools for financial management (eBIZ).

Climate-KIC focuses on climate change adaptation and mitigation technologies with significant innovation and market potential. Research-based project ideas and startups receive support all the way through to market readiness and beyond (scaling up). The project activities are supported by certified master's, doctoral and mobility programs such as Pioneers into Practice. At TU Berlin, researchers are particularly involved in activities in urban transitions (Smart Sustainable District Moabit) and sustainable production systems (EnCO2re).
