Parntership Opportunities

Grow our impact together

Our partners are the backbone of our community and make climate innovation happen.  

We offer partners support with grants and putting together research and innovation consortia and support (such as H2020 calls). We also work with trusts, foundations, city municipalities and businesses to provide a range of services that address real world challenges and innovation needs. As a partner, you can:

  • Get inspired by engaging bright minds on their challenges 
  • Get seed funding and structural support for research and innovation projects
  • Enhance visibility for your climate change and sustainability work
  • Get help translating ideas into climate-positive businesses
  • Be part of an effective and influential network of people working to address climate change in their field or sector 

Climate-KIC currently receives its core funding from the European Institute of Innovation & Technology (EIT), but we are increasingly diversifying our income streams. We are an expanding network, with increasing influence and a strong track record of bringing successful climate innovation to market.

We work with businesses, academics institutions and the public and non-profit sector to co-create solutions, and identify funding opportunities to help us deliver on our mission.
