Climate-KIC Workshop – Innovation and entrepreneurship solving climate challenges
Other, 350th Anniversary
In order to meet the challenges of climate change, we need to find innovative solutions, products and services to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and to adapt the society. Lund University is partner to Climate-KIC, which offers possibilities to explore innovative ideas, strengthen entrepreneurs and educate students and professionals in these issues.
This seminar inspires to explore your innovative ideas and give you information on how to access the possibilities within Climate-KIC and find collaboration partners. Among the presenters are Helena Tillborg from Kraftringen and from Climate-KICs Nordic headquarters Henrik Sondergaard, Innovation lead and Mikkel Trym, Entrepreneurship lead. Entrepreneurs that are already engaged in Climate-KICs activities will pitch their companies.
Also, join our VentureCafé, organised together with VentureLab and Sten K. Johnsson Centre for Entrepreneurship. Meet and discuss with the speakers, Climate-KIC and others interested in climate, innovation and entrepreneurship. There will be different stations set up where you can meet and discuss with a number of relevant actors.
The seminar targets researchers, students, entrepreneurs, start-ups, companies and others interested in innovation opportunities related to climate change.
