What is EIT Climate-KIC

The Role of EIT Climate-KIC Greece Hub

This is the EIT Climate- KIC RIS Hub platform in Greece, managed by ATHENA RC, the current Hub Coordinator. EIT Climate- KIC is the EU’s climate innovation initiative, working to accelerate the transition to a zero- carbon and resilient world by enabling systems transformation. EIT Climate- KIC was established in 2010 and is predominately funded by the European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT), a body of the European Union. The Regional Innovation Scheme (RIS) is the EIT Climate- KIC flagship initiative active across countries in Southern and Central Eastern Europe. The EIT RIS is designed as a long- term initiative to strengthen the national and regional innovation ecosystems of countries that are moderate and modest innovators, based on the EU Innovation Scoreboard. The overreaching mission is to contribute to the advancement of the climate adaptation and mitigation goals enabling the innovation performance of these countries and regions by strengthening the capacity of their innovation enablers and actors and linkages among them (such as business accelerators, incubators, start-ups, scale-ups, businesses including SMEs, agencies, educational and research institutions and their infrastructures, etc.) through facilitated cooperation at local, national and regional level. EIT Climate- KIC RIS programme offers a concrete way to design, build and deliver mission-oriented portfolios of interconnected programmes on skills development and learning, entrepreneurship, and innovation to catalyse fast decarbonization, deliver future-proof jobs, generate new markets aligned to 1.5° and drive forward adaptation and resilience.
