The role will support Climate-KIC’s EIT Regional Innovation Scheme programme roll out, strategy and the building of synergies with other internal and external activities and programmes.

The EIT Regional Innovation Scheme (EIT RIS) is the EIT Community’s outreach scheme. The scheme enables the transfer of good practices and know-how from the EIT’s unique approach to boosting innovation. The EIT Regional Innovation Scheme was introduced in 2014 to share good practices and experience emerging from EIT Community activities and to widen participation in our activities across Europe. The objective of the EIT RIS is to contribute to boosting the ability to innovate of countries and regions in Europe that belong to the groups of so-called ‘modest and moderate’ innovators (according to the European Innovation Scoreboard).

Climate-KIC was among the first wave of Knowledge and Innovation Communities (KICs) to implement the EIT Regional Innovation Scheme (EIT RIS). Our commitment to the EIT RIS stems from our mission and fundamental conviction that a societal challenge of the magnitude and severity of climate change can only be adequately dealt with if action is taken a) across Europe and b) to support real places where the severe impacts and adaptation challenges are being experienced already. The EIT RIS provides us with the opportunity to do both and work with dynamic regions and partners across Europe via selected organisations and partnerships spanning the Knowledge Triangle (KT) to tackle these challenges in real terms and gain access to talent from these regions. Our EIT RIS community currently covers Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Estonia, Greece, Latvia, Lithuania, Malta, Portugal, Romania, Serbia and Slovenia.
