COP24: Climate innovation for low-carbon and climate-resilient transitions

Katowice, Poland
16:00-18:00, 5 December 2018

Venue: Room Brussels, EU Pavilion

EIT Climate-KIC is at COP24 to highlight the importance of catalysing a shift in the financial sector to achieve transformative change to meet the challenge of climate change.

As Europe’s main climate innovation initiative, EIT Climate-KIC will be sharing how we work to bring the right partners together at the right time, to address how to create systemic impact in the financial system through innovation. With finance as a ‘systems driver’, representatives will discuss how the organisation is working with the climate innovation community to find the best ways to ‘nudge’ the financial system across its portfolio of activities in four work areas – urban transitions, sustainable land use, sustainable production systems, and decision metrics and finance.

Event info

Climate innovation supports transitions to low-carbon and climate resilient societies and plays a crucial role in delivering on the pledges of the Paris Agreement on climate change. 

Climate services developed with users provide better information on past, present and future climate variability and change, and can improve public and private decisions making. 

Generation, diffusion and adaptation of innovative technologies and policy practices to local circumstances is a shared concern of public administrations and businesses. 

But the innovation processes and services need to be co-designed, building upon scientific knowledge and business intelligence, end-user needs and made accountable to local societal challenges.
