The concept's objective is to create synergies between education, research, and innovation – the so-called knowledge triangle – and to promote the systematic development of regionally anchored clusters and international networks of the most efficient institutes, universities, and industrial research centers under the umbrella of so-called Knowledge and Innovation Communities, or KICs for short.
