We identify the most promising climate innovations

Policy makers acknowledge that climate change may have a profound impact, but adapting to and mitigating climate change is complex. Organisations often do not have access to the necessary cross-sectoral expertise. Climate-KIC provides access to the most astute and creative test-bed for climate change innovation in Europe.

Our projects are agile collaborations, which allow us to work with businesses and research partners to explore future demand, assess potential innovations to meet that demand, and identify barriers to their deployment. Climate-KIC supports these projects by providing high-quality coaching from an early stage.

Our projects culminate into a set of assessed business cases – which often include benchmarking methodologies, to assess the viability of future innovations – that can be taken forward by organisations internally, or attract additional funding from investors. We help bring the most promising solutions to market through our innovation projects
