How can your donation make a difference?
Has your city signed up to achieve net-zero by 2030?
More than 100 cities have now signed up to the EU’s Green Deal mission to achieve climate neutrality by 2030. This is an enormous undertaking that implies profound changes to the transport, energy, food, and social systems in your city. We are working with researchers and innovators from across Europe to help cities achieve this transformation in an inclusive way. We already receive funding from the European Union’s Horizon Europe innovation programme, and with your donation we hope to expand our innovation program to discover new ways to reduce emissions and create green jobs. Your donation could help us transform whole places and ways of living.
In public policy
Do you think Europe is doing enough to act on climate change?
The EU has some of the world’s most ambitious climate targets, but real action is needed to meet these targets and that action is often uncomfortable or inconvenient. To support EU lawmakers, EIT Climate-KIC works with innovators and researchers to uncover new ways to delivering change to create green jobs, reduce the impacts of climate change and increase resilience to extreme weather events. We take these innovative solutions to Brussels and help the European Commission to design new laws that support businesses and citizens to make a transformative change. Your donation could support the EU to take more ambitious and impactful policy action.
Since 2010, EIT Climate-KIC has built a climate community of over 450 partners and 54,000 students. It’s also incubated more than 2,100 companies and has supported the creation of over 10,000 jobs. Together with our community, we’ve helped drive important innovation—from policy changes to technological developments—playing a key role in accelerating the transition towards a carbon-neutral and resilient world.
