More can be done, says Climate-KIC

The EU must develop a coordinated effort to tackle climate change in response to the latest Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change report, the head of the EIT’s climate branch has said.

According to the IPCC’s fifth report, published on 3 November, the use of fossil fuels needs to be minimised by 2100 to avoid the worst effects of global climate change. Ahead of the report, the EIT’s Climate knowledge and innovation community issued a statement calling for more public-private collaborations to tackle the problem.

“Together we can promote the high-level skills needed for the world’s next, low carbon, economy and create jobs for the generations to come,” said Bertrand van Ee, the chief executive officer of Climate-KIC.
