We are EIT Climate-KIC, Europe's leading knowledge and innovation community dedicated to creating a zero-carbon economy. We are turning innovation into climate action.
EIT Climate-KIC is a European knowledge and innovation community, working to accelerate the transition to a zero-carbon economy. Of course, we cannot do this alone. Supported by the European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT), we identify and support innovations that help mitigate the negative impacts of climate change. At the same time, we support communities to adapt to climate change.
We believe that a decarbonised, sustainable economy is not only necessary to address climate change effects. The transition also presents a wealth of opportunities for business and society.
