Take part in our upcoming Open Innovation Calls

The broad, complex and systemic nature of climate change means that a multi-actor setup is required in order to adequately develop, test and implement new solutions.

At its core, open innovation is defined as “a distributed innovation process based on purposively managed knowledge flows across organizational boundaries”. These knowledge flows are governed through particular mechanisms, depending on the objectives and stakeholders, with the ultimate aim to create and capture value for those involved. While open innovation has emerged as an organizational level concept, there is increasing recognition that it has important implications across various levels of analysis.

On this page you will find the latest Open Innovation calls for proposals by EIT Climate-KIC in an effort to help build new ideas and address climate change mitigation and adaptation through innovation.
