EIT Climate-KIC Germany, Austria, Switzerland is a branch of a knowledge and innovation community established and funded by the European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT) in 2010.

Our vision is a prosperous, inclusive, climate resilient society with a circular, net-zero emissions economy by 2050.

Our mission is to catalyse systemic change for climate action.

Our purpose is to tackle climate change through innovation: We catalyse the rapid innovation needed across sectors by convening the brightest minds to tackle challenges, empowering leaders through capacity building, and seed funding the most promising climate-positive businesses.

We believe Europe and the world needs an ecosystem like EIT Climate-KIC to bring together and catalyse large and diverse communities to innovate for systemic changes that trigger climate action at scale. Society needs it. Organisations need it. Funders need it.
