The challenge is big, but our goal is simple: to achieve a sustainable energy future for Europe. Innovation is the answer. New ideas, products and solutions that make a real difference, new businesses and new people to deliver them to market.
At KIC InnoEnergy we support and invest in innovation at every stage of the journey – from classroom to customers. With our network of partners we build connections across Europe, bringing together inventors and industry, entrepreneurs and markets, graduates and employers, researchers and businesses.
We work in three essential areas of the innovation mix:
- Education to help create an informed and ambitious workforce that understands what sustainability demands and industry needs – for the future of the industry.
- Innovation Projects to bring together ideas, inventors and industry in collaboration to enable commercially viable products and services that deliver real results.
- Business Creation Services to help entrepreneurs and start-ups who are creating sustainable businesses to grow rapidly to contribute to Europe’s energy ecosystem.
Together, our work creates and connects the building blocks for the sustainable energy industry that Europe needs.

The implementation is done with at least two further European partners including the future partner for commercialisation.
Your product or service needs to be in the area of sustainable energy and preferably connected to one of the following thematic fields:
