Seven SIT alumni will be showcased at the ChangeNOW Summit 2022, an international summit to be held in Paris from 19-21 May to present concrete actions and innovations to tackle climate change-related issues, which is supported by the EIB Group (EIB, EIF and EIB Institute).

Grégoire Chauvière Le Drian, Head of the EIB Paris office, will speak on 20 May at 12:30 pm in a panel about “Democratising the energy transition”.

The European Investment Bank is one of the world’s main financiers of climate action and environmental sustainability. In 2021, the share of EIB investments that went to climate action and environmental sustainability projects rose to €27.6 billion, or 51%.

SIT alumni BeeOdiversity, Breeze Technology, Cellugy, Lixea, MIWA Technologies, Orange Fiber, and PlasticFri will pitch their impactful solutions at a session organised by the EIB Institute on Friday 20 May at 3.00 pm CEST.
