Summer school for climate innovation

Europe’s largest climate change education experience, Climate-KIC’s summer school the Journey brings together nearly 300 students every year. The five and tree week long course offers a unique combination of academic study and real-world business experience across Europe, with the aim of creating the climate change leaders of tomorrow.  

We are looking for MSc and PhD students who bring an expertise relevant to create business ideas related to climate change adaptation and mitigation. High level of English, and excellent educational results are required. The Journey is free of charge. 

It is a first-class opportunity to: 

  • Network with and relate personally to like-minded peers at all career levels. Students are selected from multiple disciplines including design and architecture as well as climate science to encourage inter-disciplinary collaboration to mitigate the impact of climate change
  • Meet the people who matter in business, science and policy, including entrepreneurs putting ideas into practice
  • Explore climate change at first hand in its scientific, environmental, social and economic contexts
  • In the final week pitch your idea in a real-life pitch challenge judged by Europe’s leading venture capitalists, start-up entrepreneurs and scientists

 Applicants can choose between a 3-week and a 5-week programme. Here you can see the difference between the two programmes.

We organize an INFO-night on February 8th where you will get familiar with the detailed programme and hear success stories from former participants and coaches. We also will help you to prepare a successful application package for the Journey.
