Abstract

In this introductory article to the EIT ICT Labs we outline its innovation ecosystem and recap the underlying motives for its foundation from the perspectives of industry, academia and society. The EIT ICT Labs are one of the initial Knowledge and Innovation Communities (KICs) of the European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT) that was founded in 2008. It bundles and facilitates the competences and resources of its 65 high profile partners from academia and industry to tackle the grand societal challenges such as ever increasing importance of ICT for various industries, the digitalizing energy environment and advanced mobility systems and the increasingly urbanized society.
