Financial Sustainability (FS)

What is it?

All the Innovation projects (and some of the education projects) receive EIT funding has to commit to pay EIT KIC success fee in case the the project is successfully commercialized and the business owner(s) earn revenue with the results of the project 

Why?

The aim is to diversify the EIT KICs income flow so they would rely not only on the EIT funding & Membership Fee and they could support new projects even after the 7+7 years when EIT do not provide any additional financial support

How?

EIT RawMaterials will consider two main types of FS mechanisms:

  1. Revenue sharing: EIT RawMaterials receives a percentage of the revenue generated from the project in at least the amount of the allocated grant if the commercialisation is successful. 
  2. Any other reasonable mechanism contributing to the financial sustainability of the KIC the Parties may agree upon. In that regard, the consortium shall remain open to enter into negotiations with EIT RawMaterials to co-invest into a project spin-off at a later stage, if applicable; project backflow could be reinvested into this new venture
