Climate-KIC is one of the Knowledge- and Innovation Communities (KICs) created in 2010 by the European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT). Climate-KIC brings together universities, companies, cities and other stakeholders in Europe with the common goal of finding innovative mitigation- and adaptation solutions to climate challenge.

Climate-KIC integrates education, entrepreneurship and innovation aiming for a connective, creative transformation of knowledge and ideas into economically viable products or services that help to mitigate climate change.

The Climate-KIC activities are driven by four climate change themes; find out more about them in the right margin or at the links below:

Sustainable Production Systems

Sustainable Production Systems
Climate-KIC’s Sustainable Production Systems aim to renew Europe’s industry, fostering innovation that reduces unsustainable resource use and greenhouse gas emissions. The theme priorities 2017
Sustainable Land Use

Sustainable Land Use
The demands on natural resources, and the interactions between land use and ecosystems services make the bio-economy sector complex in terms of sustainability. The theme priorities 2017
