The Journey 2018 is ready to begin! This is the world’s largest climate innovation summer school, organised by EIT Climate-KIC and partners. Students and professionals from all over the world come together for an intensive innovation and entrepreneurship programme hosted by top European universities. After the full time summer programme, the participants emerge with the tools to become innovative entrepreneurs and the drive to take bold steps in the fight against climate change.
This year the Journey sees 440 participants visit a total of 23 cities across Europe as well as the very first Journey taking place in Australia. Also new this year, we have the 5 week InnoSpace Journey which has been codeveloped with Copernicus. The first Journey of 2018 kicks off on the 24th of June and the final programme wraps up on the 1st of September.
In previous years we have seen ideas flourish into promising start-up businesses both during and after the Journey and we are very excited to see what this year will bring! Click here to read some stories from last year.
