Combining ideas to solve our climate challenges

How can we protect ourselves against the consequences of climate change?
And how can we help prevent further global warming?

These issues will be discussed during the Achmea Climate Conference on Wednesday morning 15 May from 9:00 to 13:00 hrs. The central question of this conference is: What kind of solutions could we come up with to make the live of the clients of Achmea healthier and more sustainable?

Idea sharing between the EIT Climate-KIC community and Achmea

The task to tackle climate change is enormous and too big to tackle alone. Smart cooperation and new initiatives are needed. We all feel the urgency to act. Innovative services and products are needed to meet the challenges of climate change. We will share our wide range of innovations we have supported in the past nine years. Like in our projects and programmes, we will work closely together with Achmea to deliver more action within and outside their sector, as well as across national borders.
