    - structure climate innovation ecosystems to optimise synergies between our Impact Goals and the main drivers and initiatives for climate action.

  3. Specific activities, including Knowledge Triangle Integration (KTI) learning events, will be proposed by Geographies with the aim to strengthen 15 knowledge triangle integration partnerships and create or pursue 20 technical and scientific learning and co-creation activities involving knowledge triangle actors and national or sub-national public bodies.

Each Geography has produced its specific priorities and insights in relation to activities that will contribute to our portfolio of activities. A high-level description is listed below. Partners are advised to contact their local EIT Climate-KIC office to understand more about these priorities and discuss opportunities to contribute. Nordic GeographyIn this geography the three priority areas are:

  1. Alternative proteins, where there is an urgent need to develop a more self-sufficient protein industry and hence reduce the reliance of Nordic farmers on soya imports;
