To make ourselves accessible to key actors
and ‘challenge owners’, we work along four priority themes: urban transitions,
sustainable land use, sustainable production systems, and decision metrics and
climate finance. In all four areas, we place an emphasis on entrepreneurship
and innovation design, on education as a driver of behavioral change through
new skills and capabilities and on policy innovation. We run programmes for
students, start-ups and innovators across Europe via centres in major cities
and regions, convening a community of excellence in people and organisations.
We balance strategic innovation, aimed at
renewing core business models, with a significant portfolio of bottom-up
innovation – e.g. through our start-up accelerators – to learn, evaluate and
continuously adjust our efforts to impact climate change. Ultimately, we aim to
become a leader in systemic innovation that contributes to a paradigm shift
from a linear, industrial production system to a circular, regenerative model,
leveraging the power of our unique community of innovators and inspiring change
