About EIT Climate-KIC

Working to accelerate the transition to a zero-carbon economy!

EIT Climate-KIC

is uniquely placed to overcome the challenges of bringing climate-focused innovation to market. CKIC works on an innovation model of knowledge exchange and technology transfer called the knowledge helix. In this model, there are flows of knowledge and experimental learning between government, academia, industry, and civil society, feeding back on strategy and decision-making to create socially accountable policies and practices. This model of innovation and knowledge exchange aims to:connect expertise with resources and know-how help sectors overcome information silos and gaps in knowledge and information help reduce the risk associated with innovation by being the first to invest and support nurture the most innovative ideas and apply scientific insight to commercial contexts
