We focus on supporting startups innovation and clean tech for climate change mitigation and adaptation in the North and Islands of Scotland. Scotland North Climate Innovation Hub was established to function as an integrated collaborative group, and to coordinate Climate-KIC activities in and for the North of Scotland for Startups and Organisations. Climate-KIC supports its community members by providing access to an ecosystem to engage with each other, by building a network that is recognised internationally in the field of climate change innovation and by supporting its community members in identifying, developing and bringing climate change adaptation and mitigation technologies to the market. The CIH Scotland North is an initiative led by Aurora Sustainability and supported by the International Research and Recycling Institute, along with the Glasgow School of Art Innovation School Campus in Moray. Early interest has been expressed from a range of partners including the Scottish Chambers of Commerce Aberdeen & Grampian and Elevator UK. It is the first climate innovation initiative in the North of Scotland.
