CEE Community LAB - New series of climate innovation events


The CEE Community LAB, was launched by EIT Climate-KIC and partners in October this year to spark climate impact partnerships in Central and Eastern Europe.

The first series of events in October has already started to build a community of climate innovators in Central and Eastern Europe (CEE). Today, the CEE Community LAB opens registration for the second series of webinars during November, covering climate-positive agriculture, green growth/reindustrialisation, energy efficiency, and building trust.

The webinars are a part of the CEE Community LAB’s efforts to build diverse, action-oriented partnerships that identify and address regional climate change priorities. Seed funding of up to EUR 20 000 is available for cross-border projects, and proposals can be submitted by participants who have attended at least two Community LAB events.
