The map combines statistical datasets for all European regions with Stories of Just Transition.
Stories can connect with each others, and so can the institutions and people behind them, virtually on this platform and physically during the Innovating for a Just Transition in Europe workshop.
Across most industries in Europe, the 'easier stuff' on the path to net zero has already been done, mostly through cleaner energy supply and efficiency.
What lies ahead is unprecedented and more difficult: structural change in social, economic and financial systems; fundamental transformations of city systems, industry and land use. New concepts of value and relationship. Innovation is essential, but not as we have been doing it. We need innovation to catalyse systemic change.
EIT Climate-KIC uses a portfolio approach to the development and the deployment of innovation to achieve systemic change.
We build portfolios of deliberately chosen innovations that work across technology, policy, finance, citizen engagement and other relevant levers of change. These portfolios test diverse ideas and approaches simultaneously in order to generate options and pathways for the transformation of whole systems and value chains.
Deep Demonstrations are intended as inspirational examples of what is possible at the level of whole systems when innovation is orchestrated, collaborative and mission-led. The Deep Demonstration of Just Transformation in industry and coal regions provides pioneering regions and industry players with systems innovation services to transform inclusively placing citizen, communities, workers, youth and consumers at the heart of the process. By activating diverse and connected innovations, institutions aim to deeply transform their region..
