The Climate Knowledge and Innovation Community (Climate-KIC)
Responding to the climate change challenge will require radical transformation in how mankind produces, distributes, and consumes, in where and how mankind chooses to live and travel, and in how mankind meets its requirements for energy, food, and water in the context of the environmental values. The aim of the Climate Knowledge and Innovation Community (Climate-KIC) is to be at the forefront of this "green revolution", providing the innovations, entrepreneurship, education and expert guidance needed to shape Europe's climate change agenda.
Climate-KIC was launched as an initiative of the European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT) designated to drive innovation in the area of climate change adaptation and mitigation through an integrated European network of global and regional partners from the private, public and academic worlds.
