Putting climate innovation at the heart of regional economic development
Our work in the UK and Ireland is focused on four key partnerships: London, West Midlands, Edinburgh and Dublin.
We believe that putting climate innovation at the heart of joined-up regional economic development plans is not only necessary to prevent catastrophic climate change, but presents a wealth of opportunities for business and society.
Our offer to cities
We provide ‘systems innovation as a service’ and ‘ecosystem orchestration’ through a programme of joined-up innovations, including:
- education, training and entrepreneurship programmes
- citizen engagement initiatives such as Climathon
- grant-funded innovation projects and consortia (tailored to support place-based systems transitions)
- open innovation and matchmaking, and more.
