Event description

Description

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.

Please join us to hear the latest developments in Climate Innovation from Climate-KIC Europe CEO, Kirsten Dunlop. A light lunch will be provided.



Kirsten Dunlop is the CEO of Climate-KIC Europe. Kirsten’s career spans academia, consulting, banking, insurance, strategy, design, innovation and leadership, across three continents (Europe, Australia and North America). Previously she was the Executive General Manager Strategic Innovation for Suncorp Group. She has led the Generali Group Innovation Academy for Assicurazioni Generali, worked in UniCredit and Newton Management Innovation in Milan, and at KPMG and Second Road in Sydney. A specialist in experiential learning and a life-long exponent of cross-disciplinary thought and practice, Kirsten has a Ph.D. in cultural history on the marriage of rhetoric and architecture in the building of Italian medieval and Renaissance cities.
