EIT Climate-KIC at COP25

Madrid, Spain
2-13 December

We’d love to see you at COP25 in Madrid, so please come and find us at one of the events listed below! Climate emergency is here and demand is growing for climate action that matches the scale and urgency of the challenge.

‘Innovation-as-usual’, which is typically siloed and focused on ‘supplying’ the market with technology-led solutions, is not delivering a 1.5 degree world. Innovation is essential, but not as we have been doing it. We need a new model of innovation to tackle climate change. We need innovation to catalyse systemic change. 

At COP25 we will be sharing examples of our work and hearing from members of our pan-European innovation community about the many different ways we can think and act systemically to address the global climate challenge. You can read more about our ‘systems innovation approach’ to tackling climate change here: Work with us to achieve net zero, in time.
