Innovation boost to tackle climate change
Date:12/16/2009

The new "Climate Knowledge and Innovation Community (Climate-KIC)" is a major initiative the EIT has announced today in Budapest. The Climate-KIC program brings together the expertise of world class partners in a shared effort to make a step-change in Europe's innovation capacity to meet the climate change challenge in the years to come and to prepare for a new low-carbon society. In responding to this challenge, we need to bring about changes to how we produce, distribute, and consume goods, and to how we meet our requirements for energy, food, and water in the context of protecting the environment.

Major investments high profile partners

With 120 million requested from the EIT, the partners themselves planned to contribute roughly five times that amount so that eventually a total of up to 750 million would be spent over the next four years on a range of innovation and education programs. The detailed numbers that finally will be approved by the EIT have however not been communicated yet and are subject to negotiation. It is the first time that companies from various sectors and scientific experts will work together in a large integrated initiative in the area of climate change. We are very pleased to have been selected for this important initiative that will equip the next generation of entrepreneurs and technologists with innovative tools and which will pioneer new thinking and practice , says Prof. Bert Van der Zwaan, as interim CEO on behalf of the partners of the Climate-KIC. The Climate-KIC was selected at the end of a one year process.

Among the sixteen core partners are universities, companies and public sector organizations. From academia, the core partners of the consortium are: ETH Zurich (Switzerland), Imperial College London (UK), a French consortium consisting of Paris area campus (IPSL, CEA, ParisTech, UVSQ, INRA, MeteoFR, Advancity), a German consortium led by the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Resear
