Climate change is a complex challenge but also a vast opportunity. How can we transform our economy and transition into a prosperous low carbon future.

Forward thinking start-ups and companies from all over the world are bringing to market innovative solutions that will transform the way we respond to climate change. How can Australia participate in this exciting transformation?

Knowledge Innovation Communities (KICs) have been developed in Europe to drive this transformation. Climate-KIC Europe and the newly established Climate-KIC Australia offer a new way to link research, business, entrepreneurs, investors and government to facilitate systemic change which addresses the challenges and harnesses the opportunities of climate change.

Our Panel will bring experts from Europe and Australia to discuss how Australia can leverage these opportunities. A light lunch will be served.
