This National Summit aims to gather the research and innovation ecosystem, together with the financial and policy institutions of the country in order to accelerate the much-needed sustainability transition.
According to Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change latest report, we have 10 years to limit climate change catastrophe and keep global warming to a maximum of 1.5C, beyond which even half a degree will significantly worsen the risks of drought, floods, extreme heat and poverty for hundreds of millions of people. Becoming the world’s first climate-neutral continent by 2050 is the greatest challenge and opportunity of our times. To achieve this, the European Commission presented the European Green Deal, the most ambitious package of measures that should enable European citizens and businesses to benefit from sustainable green transition. Measures accompanied with an initial roadmap of key policies range from ambitiously cutting emissions, to investing in cutting-edge research and innovation, to preserving Europe’s natural environment. The Greek National Summit aims to gather the research and innovation ecosystem, together with the financial and policy institutions of the country in order to accelerate the much-needed sustainability transition.
EIT Climate-KIC is Europe’s largest public-private partnership focused on the rapid, broad-based systems innovation we now need to tackle climate change and build resilient, net zero-carbon societies. EIT Climate-KIC is a knowledge and innovation community established and funded by the European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT) in 2010 aiming to tackle climate change through innovation bringing together large and small companies, scientific institutions and universities, city authorities and other public bodies, start-ups, and students.
ATHENA RC is leading EIT Climate-KIC Hub Greece aiming at a prosperous and climate-resilient society based on the circular economy model through accelerating innovation and developing synergies.
