Welcome to the Pioneers Romania page!

Diversity is at the heart of Pioneers into Practice, we bring together climate change professionals with organisations from across public, private, research & not for profit backgrounds from a range of different climate change sectors. We offer the unique opportunity to collaborate across Europe, share expertise & best practice, expand networks and create new products and services in the field of the climate change.

During the programme you will complete one placement (4-6 weeks, regional or international), work in groups on real climate challenges and receive bespoke mentoring and support on transition thinking and system innovation in the area of climate change adaptation and mitigation.

To apply from Romania as either a Pioneer or Host you have until the 1 June for pioneers and 16 June for hosts to complete your online application. For more information on the application process please check out the 'How to Apply' page.

Greater programme detail can also be found by contacting your local Manager (full details can be found at the bottom of this page).

“Pioneer into Practice was an opportunity for me to discover a new world, a close community, new friends, new business partners. An extraordinary experience! Change, learning new things, exploring and discovering, all happen outside the comfort zone. If you change your mindset, your attitude will change. If your attitude changes, your behavior will change. If your behavior changes, your results will change. If your results change, you will change, and with you, the entire world around you will change according to the power of your example. I invite you to the EIT Climate KIC community and you will see, after participating in PIP, that you will want to participate in all the programs initiated by them."- Andreea Mihoc (pioneer 2019)
