EIT Climate-KIC is Europe's biggest network for climate-friendly innovations.
The EIT Climate-KIC Germany office drives the development of scalable high impact climate change solutions with its programmes and its community of innovative companies, researchers, start-ups and students.
Based in the heart of Berlin at EUREF-Campus, an historic industrial site that was turned into an innovation campus dedicated to a low-carbon future, EIT Climate-KIC Germany supports 6 Core Partners and 17 Affiliate Partners to drive cross-sector climate innovation. Berlin and Munich are the locations of the highly successful EIT Climate-KIC DACH accelerator programme, whose start-ups (e.g. lilium, tado & green city solutions) raised more than 250 million euros in 2017 alone. Our German team is strongly interconnected with partners and colleagues in Austria as well as Switzerland, and is focusing on European, cross-border, cross-sectoral innovation and education projects with a positive climate impact.
