    Knowledge Innovation Communities aim to ensure that the three sides of the knowledge triangle – education, research, industry - work together on a common challenge to create the innovation that Europe needs to create jobs and growth.

Others are planned in the next seven years -healthy living and active ageing, raw materials, food, manufacturing,  urban mobility.
