First Ever Cleantech Start-up Accelerator in Lithuania

17 Jan

The EIT Climate-KIC Accelerator is the only EU accelerator programme focused on climate impact by cleantech commercialisation – now coming to more countries across Europe.

The EIT Regional Innovation Scheme (EIT RIS) is EIT Climate-KIC’s outreach programme to increase the innovation capacity of European regions that don’t yet benefit directly from the EIT and its Knowledge and Innovation Communities (KICs).

The programme connects EIT Climate-KIC with selected partnerships from business, higher education and research, as well as regional policy-makers, public entities and other stakeholders to spur innovation in Europe.

If you are an early-stage startup (up to five years since incorporation and minimum two founders) or you are working as a team and want to create a startup based around a new technology or service with high potential for both commercial viability and climate impact, then this is the right place for you!
