Climate-KIC, the EU’s main climate innovation initiative, has launched the CSA Booster. It brings together an ecosystem of partners to identify, assess, demonstrate and implement CSA solutions at scale and aims to be the leading platform in promoting innovation and investment in CSA technologies, accelerating and scaling the adoption of CSA solutions and facilitating the transition to a climate smart agricultural sector across Europe and beyond.
Climate-KIC is the EU’s largest public private partnership addressing climate change through innovation to build a zero carbon economy. They address climate change across four priority themes: urban areas, land use, production systems, climate metrics and finance. Education is at the heart of these themes to inspire and empower the next generation of climate leaders. Climate-KIC run programmes for students, start-ups and innovators across Europe via centres in major cities, convening a community of the best people and organisations. Their approach starts with improving the way people live in cities, with the focus that industry creates the products required for a better living environment, and they look to optimise land use to produce the food people need. Climate-KIC is supported by the European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT), a body of the European Union.
