European Institute of Technology The Polish proposal

15 The success of the EIT concept will hinge on providing innovative solutions in three key areas: 1. Access EITs activities should engage representatives of all countries of Europe in every category typical to academic institutions: students, researchers, teaching staff and the surrounding business environment; European Institute of Technology

16 2. Resources 2. Resources The mission of the new institution will be achieved and successfully advanced if funding will be systemic, lasting and independent of changing political conditions; 3. Synergy 3. Synergy EITs success will also depend on how effective the new institution will be at linking existing European research institutions and highly qualified academic staff with young people hungry for success. EIT must also develop an effective model for cooperating closely with private sector. European Institute of Technology

17 Regional Strategy for Lower Silesia 2007 - 2013 Investing substantial portion of the EU-based structural and cohesion funds into: Making Lower Silesia the European Knowledge Creation Region in the European Research Area (ERA) Making Lower Silesia the European Knowledge Creation Region in the European Research Area (ERA) Making material conditions for strong partnership between Higher Education, Research and Innovative Business & Economy Making material conditions for strong partnership between Higher Education, Research and Innovative Business & Economy Making Lower Silesia a knowledge-based economy region Making Lower Silesia a knowledge-based economy region The EIT – plus project
