The Nordic countries are consistently near or at the top in comparisons of international innovation and business competitiveness.

Our Nordic centre, which is relatively new, provides Climate-KIC’s community with innovative and imaginative solutions to climate change via a dynamic triple helix alliance of Nordic partners from academia, industry and the public sector.

DTU’s Lyngby campus is dedicated to being able to offer unique research facilities in beautiful and functional settings.


The partners of Climate-KIC’s Nordic centre include five industrial partners, each world-class within their branch, six top-performing universities, three municipalities, one regional council and two SMEs.

Key city partners are Malmö and Gothenburg in Sweden, Helsinki Uusimaa Region in Finland and  Copenhagen, which has a stated ambition to be the first carbon neutral capital in the world, in Denmark.
