Event description

Description

EIT Climate-KIC Nordic's biannual Ideation Day brings together and strengthens the Nordic climate action community. Cities, universities, start-ups, students and companies combine their knowledge and experience to find solutions to climate change problems.

Hosted by our partner the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) with support from local collaborators, the Ideation Day will split into three parallel tracks. Participants are encouraged to share their ideas and challenges beforehand!

EIT Climate-KIC's Nordic Ideation Day is a biannual event where partners and others are invited to come together and co-create project ideas. This time, with support from NTNU's Engage Centre for Engaged Education through Entrepreneurshipand TrollLabs, we have refreshed the structure of Ideation Day, moving towards a more open-ended event where ideas are allowed to emerge and develop throughout the day in a truly collaborative fashion. Read more about the structure on the offical event page.

Pitching and Awards

The ambition is that we will have a number of good project proposal ideas at the end of the day, which can be pitched before a jury. The very best ones will be awarded from a pot of EUR 150.000 to work further on their project.

The Ideation Day in August will be focused on EIT Climate-KIC's 12 Impact Goals. Two separate "tracks" will be dedicated to Alternative Protein and Mobility, respectively. The third, “general” track will be dedicated to project ideas responding to the other impact goals. We would love to hear from you already now if there are specific topics or questions you would like to work on, so please let us know when signing up! If something should come to mind at a later stage, don’t hesitate to get in touch.

Who is the Nordic Ideation Day for?

The Ideation Day is open to all employees of EIT Climate-KIC partners as well as current and future collaborators. The event is equally geared towards universities, cities and companies, and collaborative projects between these three types of entities are strongly favoured.

We would like to encourage Norwegian parties in particular to participate, in order to get to know EIT Climate-KIC and what it means to be part of this climate action community.

Lastly, this event presents a great opportunity for students and start-ups to get to know the community and explore how their knowledge might be applied in a climate innovation setting.

Why Participate?

Participating in the Ideation Day provides and excellent opportunity to get to know the EIT Climate-KIC Nordic community, to get feedback on project ideas, and co-create with other experts and professionals. Last but not least, the prizes awarded at the end of the day enable the winners to work further on their ideas towards implementation and real climate impact.
