NTU now partner in EIT Climate KIC

NTU was on the 30th November 2015 officially selected as the newest partner of EIT Climate KIC. NTU was specially chosen to join this exclusive climate partnership due to its emerging and focal role within the expanding market of climate consulting and management. Being one of the European Institute for Innovation and Technology’s (EIT) Knowledge and Innovation Communities (KICs), EIT Climate KIC is the most credible and practical climate change network in Europe. The KIC brings together the most influential and commercially-minded players in the climate change area and focuses on activities addressing real demand. The selection to join this unique partnership is thus an honour for NTU and the company will look forward to joining the network in its ambition of accelerating climate change innovation in Europe and the rest of the world. The partnership will grant NTU access to an incredibly ambitious network, that will provide NTU with a range of new opportunities and projects, in which NTU can both broaden its knowledge and gain invaluable relations across various sectors. NTU will contribute to the network with its long ranging experience within the transport, mobility and infrastructure sector, global management and technical consultancy and thus hope to expand the capacity and knowhow of the network. NTU will especially aspire to contribute to projects within the transport sector, where commercially directed initiatives such as demonstration projects and testing in an urban environment will contribute to transforming the heavy transport and freight sector from one of the largest emission sinners, to a more energy efficient and sustainable sector.
