EIT CLIMATE KIC / PIP
"Climate change is no longer a far-off problem; it is happening here, it is happening now." -- Barack Obama
Pioneers Into Practice - PiP
Professional mobility programme that aims at creating a community of thinkers, that together will place sustainable technologies into practice. There are no costs involved, only willingness to make a difference.
For that, there are two tracks (that we are looking only for Portuguese players):
Pioneers: Professionals (entrepreneurs or corporates) that will go to an internatIonal entity to develop an approach to a specific identified problem;
Hosts: Entities (public or private) that will accepted for 4-6 weeks the pioneer, and will design the challenge to be met..
From May to November, pioneers will be punctually involved in different stages:
training (e.g. workshops);
group phase to develop a solution;
Shape the world's next economy;
Create new products and services to boost the low carbon economy;
Look at things differently.
