A few minutes ago the IOTA Foundation announced that it had begun to collaborate with the EIT Climate KIC, a branch of the European Institute for Technology that deals with connecting and proposing eco-sustainable and scalable solutions within the European Union.

IOTA has decided to participate in the Deep Demonstration of the EIT Climate KIC and, together with other structures, including universities, will develop a sustainable plan that takes into account the resources used and thus improve their efficiency.

A transformation both on the level of actions and on the mental level, said Riyong Kim, Director of Decision Metrics and Finance at EIT Climate KIC: 

“Attempting to transform action and mindsets to more longer-term thinking will critically need the opportunities and possibilities that deep tech can provide, including the capabilities which IOTA can bring. We are very excited about collaborating with IOTA on this ambitious deep demonstration”.

In fact, it will be also thanks to the use of a lot of data that it will be possible to make decisions on how to stay within a possible and liveable scenario. IOTA, thanks to its community of developers, can make a significant contribution to this, explained Harald Rauter, Head of Emerging Technology Experimentation at EIT Climate KIC:

“On the transformational path to a sustainable world in line with the 1.5°C scenario connected devices, data and data-driven decision making will play a critical role. I am exhilarated to be able to welcome the IOTA Foundation both to the EIT Climate-KIC family as well as to the Deep-Demonstration on Long-termism. The IOTA Foundation holds those values so dear that EIT Climate-KIC considers key for a sustainable data-driven future – privacy, social inclusion and digital empowerment. I am deeply inspired by IOTA´s passion, the willingness to experiment and the belief in the power and ingenuity of community-driven innovation. Together, we will achieve great things!”

Julie Maupin, Director of Social Impact and Public Regulatory Affairs at the IOTA Foundation, explained:

“Taking part in this project gives us the opportunity to tap into the amazing creativity and passion

Julie Maupin, Director of Social Impact and Public Regulatory Affairs at the IOTA Foundation, explained:

Taking part in this project gives us the opportunity to tap into the amazing creativity and passion of IOTA’s open source community. The long term perspective invites each and every one of us to take a fresh look at the essential questions underlying sustainability”.

Certainly the problem of climate change is an issue that involves everyone and also this sector. IOTA recently also announced a scalability solution that allows for potentially infinite space to manage data on the blockchain.
