Healthy, Clean Cities

Cities face an enormous challenge in becoming resilient, healthy places to live, while reaching net-zero-emissions in just a few short years. EIT Climate-KIC is working with 15 of the most ambitious mayors, municipalities and city communities in Europe to design portfolios of joined-up innovations capable of unlocking wholesale transformation across all city systems – from mobility to waste to energy to health and the built environment. Our first cohort of partners includes Amsterdam, Edinburgh, Kraków, Križevci, Leuven, Madrid, Malmö, Maribor, Milano, Niš, Orléans, Sarajevo, Skopje and Vienna. 

Our work is informed by more than 10 years of experience working in the field of urban environment gathered through EIT Climate-KIC ‘s large-scale programmes and flagship initiatives, and the interdisciplinary professional expertise of the Cities team, including our design partners Bankers without Boundaries, Dark Matter Labs, The Democratic Society, and Material Economics
