Pioneers into Practice

Empowering participants through system innovation thinking.

We need radical climate action more than ever

Climate-Kic-36

Through collaboration, we can come together to tackle the root causes of climate change and transform the systems we operate in. 

Pioneers into Practice, an EIT Climate-KIC programme, equips participants with practical tools needed to become the next generation of climate innovators and help to reach a net-zero society.

Through a mix of E-learning, Workshops, Projects, Coaching and Placements, Pioneers connects professionals across Europe and provides a one-of-a-kind, transformative learning experience. We see innovation and learning as two sides of the same coin.  

Pioneers is tailored to local climate mitigation and adaptation needs, allowing participants to work on relevant challenges in their locations while connecting to a broader, European community of changemakers.
