The EIT Regional Innovation Scheme accelerates climate innovation across Europe. EIT RIS facilitates connections into our established innovation hubs, now in 14 countries in the centre, east and south of Europe, securing EIT Climate-KIC’s pan-European reach, boosting climate innovation capacity across the continent.

The EIT Climate KIC Croatia Hub was established in June 2018 and is composed of Zagreb Innovation Centre, North-West Croatia Regional Energy Agency, University of Zagreb (University Technology Transfer Office and Faculty of Geotechnical Engineering), Terra Hub, Zelena energetska zadruga (Green Energy Cooperative, ZEZ) and Mreža znanja d.o.o. The aim of the consortium is to promote and set up a strong network of system-changers and to catalyse actions leading to a systemic change, a deep transformation of the way we work, live, learn and think by involving all layers of society. We all need to change with the climate. We all need to work together – to collaborate, to co-create, to experiment and learn how to use all the knowledge we have fragmented across sectors and themes – together. Therefore, the Hub is a focal point to connect organisations and individuals from cities, research and education institutions, students, start-ups, entrepreneurs, public and civic organisations, with a role to support knowledge sharing, integration and acceleration of the journey of solutions from the labs and garages to the market in the fastest and most efficient way.

In Croatia we are doing it through several EIT Climate-KIC programmes:

The EIT Climate-KIC start-up accelerator programme in Croatia is managed by Zagreb Innovation Centre with the six teams at the second generation of start-ups in the programme.

The Pioneers into Practice professional exchange programme in Croatia is managed by the Regional Energy Agency with the second generation of ten professionals who are getting irreversibly weaved into European climate innovation network of professionals, partners and actors.  

The pool of programmes alumni is strengthened as well with those who participated in Journey summer school or in Climathons held in Croatian cities two years in a row – Zagreb, Rijeka and Varaždin.

There is a range of EIT Climate-KIC supported projects working with cities, as a part of Deep Demonstrations where other partners are involved – Green Energy Cooperative, Regional Energy Agency and Terra Hub. Check-out Accelerator for Cities; Future Cities of South-East Europe; Bl.EU -Climate Innovation in Southern Waters… and more to come this year.

Follow us and join us, be a climate-gamechanger, let’s build our future together.
