Our Climate Ready Future

The 3rd European Climate Change Adaptation Conference (ECCA) will be held in Glasgow from the 5-9th June 2017. Climate-KIC and Innovate UK have developed an exciting opportunity for businesses to access the fantastic research at the conference, and showcase their innovations to over 1000 delegates.

The Innovation Day (7th June 2017) will create opportunities for business, from micro- to multi-nationals to join with researchers, students, and other groups in tackling the adaptation challenges of cities and local governments. Through an open innovation process and via a pitching stage, innovators will highlight how their cutting-edge solutions can tackle current and future adaptation needs.
