- Case stories
EIT Climate-KIC is a Knowledge and Innovation Community (KIC), working to accelerate the transition to a zero-carbon economy.
Supported by the European Institute of Innovation and Technology, EIT Climate-KIC identifies and supports innovation that helps society mitigate and adapt to climate change. EIT Climate-KIC believes that a decarbonised, sustainable economy is not only necessary to prevent catastrophic climate change, but presents a wealth of opportunities for business and society. EIT Climate-KIC brings together partners in the worlds of business, academia, and the public and non-profit sectors to create networks of expertise, through which innovative products, services and systems can be developed, brought to market and scaled-up for impact. Through this convening power, EIT Climate-KIC brings together the most effective groups to create the innovation that can lead to systemic change.
EIT Climate-KIC helps partners to influence key drivers of change — behaviour, governance, policy, finance, technology, market structures and information — by offering seed funds and grants off which they can leverage, building capacity and skills among leaders, providing the platforms needed for knowledge exchange and a neutral point around which stakeholders can coalesce and convene.
The Innovation Office has been tasked to coordinate the work of Chalmers linked to Climate-KIC. Please contact Pip Dragonetti (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you have any questions.
