Knowledge Contribution

Other
Sometimes Climate-KIC asks for articles on specific topics from its partners.

Climate-KIC in this call asks for proposals to write papers on a number of topics. Two of the papers are a little bit larger works (10 pages) on the topics:

  • Unlocking finance for land use
  • The Financing a step change in the move to a circular economy

Climate-KIC also ask for shorter contributions, called "Climate Innovation Insights" These are reports are intended to be quality-assured, evidence-based, authored in a clear and compelling manner in order to make them accessible for broad international audiences of entrepreneurs, public servants, researchers, students, and investors. The suggested legth of the reports are 4 pages. Suggested topics include, but are not limited to:

 

  • Deforestation and unsustainable forest management in the tropical areas - reduce the impact of the international value chains and develop landscape approaches.
  • Food security and systems - Enhancing food security by increasing the resilience of global food systems
  • Food waste - Enabling circular and bio economy development by reducing, recover and reuse food waste for biomaterials and bioenergy with an urban focus.
  • Foodtech - catalysing food innovations to promote nutrition and wellness, and linking food production and consumption
  • What is the capacity of the offsite manufacturing industry to treble the deep retrofit rate in Europe
  • What are the best examples of low carbon mobility in Europe and what made these successful
  • What are the top 5 sustainable districts and what are the policy instruments that allowed this to occur
  • Behaviour change or Social Innovation is often overlooked when solutions are provided to climate change challenges. What are 5 best examples in Europe and what were the contributing factors.
  • Matching innovation demand and supply is a key motivation for Climate KIC. We would like to explore the possibility of partnering with others to provide this service.
  • There is currently a performance gap between the designer’s intent and asset in use. We would like to explore the latest measures being utilised by industry to address this
  • Circular cities. Cities are currently adopting a waste to energy approach, resulting in the burning of potentially valuable materials that could be repurposed. We would like to investigate best practice of cities that have adopted circular principles- best examples, and policy and economic instruments that enabled this change to occur.
  • How digitisation will positively affect sustainability outcomes and where the hot spots or intervention are.
  • Best examples of Nature based solutions in Europe.
  • Blockchain technology for enhancing circularity of materials specifically for plastics at the interface between chemicals, products and EU waste legislation
  • Blockchain technology for enabling traceability of food and transparency across the whole value chains
  • Digitisation as innovation driver for Circular Economy, e.g. smart packaging, smart and intelligent assets
  • Role of digitisation in overcoming information gaps in local to global value chains that prevent closing product and material loops
  • Best examples of digital business models and innovations enabling dematerialization of products
  • Digitization as enabler for individualization of demand to reduce mass production and reduce global material flows
  • Enhancing eco-design and modular design for consumer products through digital solutions and platforms
  • How to solve lack of ICT systems’ interoperability, legal uncertainty related to the use and access to data, and allocation of intellectual property rights through digital solutions
  • Best examples of scale-up of digital business models enabling circularity of materials, specifically plastics, metal and cement
  • Recommendations for a policy framework supporting digital material passports for plastics in consumer products to increase recovery, upcycling and re-use rates
  • Best cases of open source and shared IP business models and innovations and how to translate learnings to accelerate circularity of materials specifically plastics, metal and cement
