Extraordinary Post COVID-19 Regeneration Call 2020

Beyond the dramatic healthcare crisis caused by this pandemic, we are also facing another crisis: a shock to our economy tougher than any crisis since the 1930’s Great Depression, according to IMF. The impacts of the pandemic on the economy, businesses and workers calls for a strong coordinated economic response. Now is the time to correct course. EIT Climate-KIC is therefore supporting the call for a European Green Recovery, asking for a reboot of the economy. This initiative is part of the EIT’s Crisis Response Initiative and directly contributes to the European Union’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

EIT Climate-KIC is seeking to support the ambitious activities needed to regenerate and reboot our economies in line EIT Climate-KIC’s mission to build a prosperous, inclusive, climate-resilient society founded on a net- zero-carbon, circular economy. Activities, projects and programmes submitted in response to this call for proposals should align with our strategy, Transformation, in Time, by contributing to the achievement of system transformation towards a low-carbon economy.

THEMES & CONDITIONS:

The Call is shaped by EIT to identify projects with the potential to stimulate job creation, prosperity and economic regeneration, and by EIT Climate-KIC to narrow in on the European Green Deal frames of circular economy, the built environment and the financial system.

The projects must deliver tangible outputs by the end of 2020 – products, services and solutions with clear market pathways. Studies, project plans, analyses or similar are not considered as products, services or solutions. 

Due to the requirement that the projects deploy funding by the end of 2020, programmes and projects that have the maturity level to grow and scale fast, create jobs, and that build and complement our existing portfolio of work are preferred. 

Please read the Call to Action and Guidelines carefully (they are combined in one document) and start to shape your Expressions of Interest as soon as possible to meet the quick turnaround.

Digital Education Hack (DigiEduHack) SGA 2020 

DigiEduHack was initiated in 2019 by DG EAC and EIT Climate-KIC in the frame of the EIT Cross-KIC project Human Capital. The activity is funded by the Digital Education Action Plan. The goal is to run a 24h European hackathon to discuss the challenges of digital education, envision how to solve them and develop innovative solutions.  The topic in 2020 is: The Future of Education. The main challenges addressed by the priorities of the Digital Education Action Plan are divided into broad categories and used as a basis for the hackathon.

EIT Climate-KIC is seeking partners that would like to host hackathons to solve their challenges around digital education and climate change mitigation and adaptation.  It will be up to the hosts to decide which category they want to focus on and, within the category chosen, address a specific challenge that will be ´hacked´ during the event. 

CONDITIONS:

All KICs have received funding to be allocated to the partners that are excited to host their hackathons. The funding can be used for offline and online hackathons in November 2020. EIT Climate-KIC is setting up a platform that can be chosen by the partners to host the online hackathons (more information on pricing will be shared with interested partners in the upcoming weeks).

Participation as a host is free of charge, hence hosts that want to join later and do not require funding, are free to do so.

EIT Climate-KIC would like to offer up to €4,000 funding per hackathon, with a requirement for a maximum reimbursement rate of 75% (i.e. co-funding of a minimum 25% of the total budget, must be provided).

Please read the Call to Action and Guidelines carefully (they are combined in one document) and start to shape your proposal as soon as possible to meet the quick turnaround.
