Collaboration Opportunities

Open Innovation

Open Innovation has become a major phenomenon in facilitating innovations and accelerating and enhancing the innovation process. The use of external knowledge, user-driven innovations, networks and even entire ecosystems composed of different actors jointly contributing to new solutions is now a mainstreamed way of facilitating innovation. In the Nordics, we have built up a strong track record of these cases.

Nordic Master Classes

Most of the world’s inhabitants live in cities. This poses serious sustainability challenges and the Nordic countries have long been at the forefront of creating livable, sustainable cities. This is now being recognised internationally, leading to Nordic knowledge and experience with sustainable city planning, retrofit and infrastructure being exported to a hungry market. Addressing this discrepancy, EIT-Climate-KIC is now launching an educational programme allowing cities worldwide to learn from Nordic cities in a more immersive way.
