Catalysing Climate Action

through knowledge, innovation and community

Climate-KIC Australia is an independent, not-for-profit organisation that aims to inspire and enable climate action by being a catalyst for systemic change, through innovation.


We believe that system level innovation is necessary to avoid potentially devastating economic, environmental and social losses.

Our strategy 

How we drive systemic change


Climate-KIC Australia is the place to engage with climate innovation in Australia and to participate in transformational activities that unlock change at the speed and scale the climate challenge needs.

Portfolio of activities

Our activities take a portfolio approach and intervene on levers of change – technology, finance, business models, skills, knowledge and policy – in a comprehensive and coordinated way to achieve systemic outcomes.


Through our portfolio of activities and community, we provide stakeholder connections across systems: the ability for organisations to experiment, monitor, evaluate, share knowledge and learning, connect and scale promising projects to collectively amplify climate impact.
