Aalto Climate

Aalto Climate Aalto joined to European innovation and entrepreneurship program EIT Climate-KIC, which thematic focus is climate change mitigation.

Aalto University's new collaboration with EIT Climate KIC which is the Europe’s largest public-private innovation partnership focused on climate change, consisting of dynamic companies, the best academic institutions and the public sector. Aalto University will engage activities in all existing pillars: education, innovation and entrepreneurship. The Aalto activities are in two focus themes which are sustainable cities and built environment and bio-economy. The Uusimaa Regional Council (Uudenmaanlitto) administers a regional Climate-KIC project that supports low-carbon innovations and adaptation to the consequences of climate change in the Helsinki-Uusimaa Region. Climate-KIC is one of three Knowledge and Innovation Communities (KICs) created in 2010 by the European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT). The EIT is an EU body whose mission is to create sustainable growth. We support this mission by addressing climate change mitigation and adaptation.

Call for researchers interested in climate change innovations transformation in systems of cities, land use, materials and finance.

EIT Climate-KIC is looking to support ambitious, and potentially transformative innovation projects.

CKIC invites proposals that:
• Are aligned with EIT Climate-KIC’s strategy, and seek to effect change through innovation in four overarching systems - Cities, Land, Materials, Finance
• Hypothesise a role in unlocking systemic change (on tackling climate change) to support achievement of one or more of EIT Climate-KIC’s Impact Goals (see end of this email)
• Have a clear strategic argument for the relationship between innovation and impact, including how the innovation will act on key levers of systems change.
• For Innovation Projects specifically: - Have the duration of up to three years, but with a key milestone by the end of 2020.
• Have EIT budget requests of between €100k – €300k for the year 2020.

CKIC encourage more creative and unusual innovation proposals that seek to explore the boundaries of possibility; unconstrained by lengthy, tailored guidance and able to generate new learning about complex systems.

The call deadline:
The deadline for submitting the initial expression of interest is 25 October 2019 at 1800hrs CET.

Reusing wood may help combat climate change!

Aalto University's Mark Hughes pitched the REWOOD project idea (Design for Deconstruction in Wood) at the recent Climate-KIC Nordic Ideation Day held at the Design Factory, Aalto University and it was awarded a total of €25k! Well done Mark and the team!

Mark Hughes explains "The aim of REWOOD is to radically rethink how wood is used in buildings - regarding them as temporal stores of the material that can be accessed through proper design for deconstruction (DfD)." "We will bring together a range of stakeholders including architects, construction companies, civil and structural engineers, waste management specialists, forest products manufacturers, wood scientists and technologists, building physicists, policy makers, economists and forest scientists etc. to develop a broad-based understanding of the technical, economic and policy challenges facing DfD." "We will use this understanding to initiate practical DfD projects." "The project includes partners from NTNU, Norway, Chalmers University, Sweden, Copenhagen University and TUM, Germany as well as Aalto University." "Researchers from the Aalto schools of CHEM, ARTS, BIZ and ENG are involved in the project."
