EIT Climate-KIC at European Week of Cities & Regions

LOCATION
Brussels, Belgium
DATE
8 - 11 October 2018

EIT Climate-KIC will be participating in several events at this year’s premier gathering of European cities and regions in Brussels, including a TED-style talk from Chief Executive Officer Kirsten Dunlop on 11 October at 15:30-16:00. With the new Multi-annual Financial Framework taking shape, this is a critical time for those seeking to be Europe’s leading cities and regions in delivering their part of the Paris Agreement on climate, and to engage with policymakers and like-minded actors to place innovation at the heart of Europe’s climate action.

Members of the EIT Climate-KIC Community are invited to discuss ‘How can we accelerate climate innovation for cities and regions in the new Multi-annual Financial Framework?‘ – the subject of the talk which EIT Climate-KIC Chief Executive Officer Kirsten Dunlop will deliver 15:30-16:00, in Room 213 Building SQUARE – Brussels Convention Centre. You will need to register through the Commission website for this. However, there will be a networking session ahead of this 14:30-15:30 in room 210 (circle 2) in the same building. Please contact euaffairs@climate-kic.org if you plan to come along.
