What we do

Role of the Climate-KIC Greece Hub 

EIT Climate KIC Greece Hub is composed by a consortium of various organisations across the knowledge triangle.  The partners are:  Athena Research Center (ATHENA RC), which is the Greek Hub coordinator, Academy of Athens (AA) -Research Centre for Atmospheric Physics and Climatology  and the Foundation for Economic and Industrial Research (IOBE), Eunice Energy Group. In addition to the Hub members, EIT Climate- KIC is partnering in Greece with PRAXI Network and UNESCO Chair on Futures Research, which is a Hub supporter.

EIT Climate-KIC Greece Hub is a connector between policymakers, innovators and the society, seeking the transformation of the society. This process is ensured through implementation research, participatory workshops, educational training, capacity building, local actions and innovation support and communities of practice. Through our network, we can offer seminars and training to stakeholders at the Municipality level, as well as the co-responsible public authorities such as Ministries of Environment and Agriculture or Port authorities, at the business sector such as entrepreneurs, farmers, shipowners, investors and bankers about the meaning and importance of implementing the Systems Innovation Approach and more importantly why it is relevant for protecting the economy while at the same time integrating the new technologies into the market.

In particular, the EIT Climate KIC Hub will bring to surface the potential of Greece for innovative solutions in CleanTech, WaterTech, Circular Economy & innovative financing innovative financing schemes.
