Climate-KIC Italy is based in the National Research Council of Bologna, the capital city of Emilia-Romagna Region and supports 36 partners, among public bodies, companies, start-ups, research and academia.

The aim is to develop human capital in Italy, research the innovation, design strategies and projects able to mitigate and adapt to climate change, in harmony with the largest European community of EIT Climate-KIC.

The Italian team works side by side with partners and entrepreneurs, researchers, public administrators and stakeholders, sharing knowledge and driving engagement to tackle climate change.
