Convening networks of expertise
We bring 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 our convening power, EIT Climate-KIC brings together the most effective groups to create the innovation that can lead to systemic change.
Leveraging grants smartly and effectively
We identify, source and place public and private funds that stimulate innovation. We track progress and outcomes and draw out learning and insight so that our funding partners can effectively invest their resources for maximum impact.
By bringing together those with vision, with ideas, with low-carbon products and services, and with finance, we generate the critical mass needed to tackle climate change.
Developing people and capacity
EIT Climate-KIC runs a range of inspirational education programmes across Europe and online, for students, postgraduates and professionals. These programmes develop their participants’ skills and capacities, empowering them with up-to-date knowledge and best practice.
In this way, we are fostering a new generation of entrepreneurs and climate leaders to realise a zero-carbon, climate-resilient society.
