Would you like to dive into an adventure across Europe together with like-minded students who want to stop global warming? Then the Climate-KIC Journey might be exactly your thing.
The Journey is the world’s largest summer school for climate innovation, run by Climate-KIC – the European Union’s main climate innovation initiative. Our programme complements and enriches the academic experience of passionate graduate students, empowering them to become the next generation of climate innovation leaders.
The Summer School provides a unique and exciting opportunity for the most talented and ambitious students to take part in a 3 or 5 week learning experience. This takes students out of the classroom and into industry, research institutions, and innovative workshops with a distinct learn-by-doing methodology. The Journey combines lectures, case studies and site-visits to help get participants up to speed on the latest climate and business knowledge. Practical workshops, coaching and collaboration help students identify their own climate innovation business idea, culminating in a pitch competition in the final week.
