Member states opt for a 'network EIT'

EIT would bring together departments of universities, companies and research institutes to perform research, education and innovation activities in areas such as nanotechnologies, green energy and climate change. These departments and their personnel would be seconded to the EIT and thus cease to be part of their home organisations for 10-15 years. The EIT would receive funding from the EU budget, member states and businesses.

The results of the stakeholder consultation on the EIT were published on 13 March 2006. The report states that the consultation "reveals a positive attitude to the establishment of an EIT", even though the questionnaire failed to address the relevance of an EIT. Instead, the consultation considered the mission, added value, structure and priorities of an EIT.
