The Case of Small Islands
Research and Innovation for Climate Neutrality
July 25
16:00 (CET)
What We’ll Discuss
Much of the existing research on carbon neutrality focuses on medium- or large-sized countries. Small islands need different solutions. These regions often face unique challenges, such as limited resources, higher dependency on imported energy, and vulnerability to climate change impacts. However, they also have unique opportunities, such as the potential for localised renewable energy projects and innovative community-led initiatives.

Explore how the Mediterranean Island Cleantech Innovation Ecosystem (MICIE) project aims to intensify innovation and research activity in the field of green transition in Cyprus and Malta, focusing on strengths and integrating the resulting ecosystems for synergistic effects.
Importance of the co-design process with stakeholders
