Most of us admit that climate change is a continuous process changing the circumstances of our lives on a daily basis. As individuals and communities we tend to adapt to these changes, that are generally insidious. We usually ignore them. ending up being knocked down when they are accumulating or escape the envelope of the ”ordinary”.
Unfortunately, here in Timisoara it was just weeks ago when the nature came with an extraordinary manifestation of unleashed strength. The September 17th storm massively affected the city, and the life of several of our fellow citizens in Timis County were abruptly terminated.
During the Timisoara 2017 Climathon we’ll try:
- to analyse the multifactorial system of societal elements defining the city climate footprint
- to generate ideas and explore technology and community based solutions that will permit us to
- measure the evolution of this footprint,
- collect, process, analyse, visualize, explain and disseminate relevant data to the community,
- increase Timisoara citizens awareness about the effects of their individual decisions (even in terms of daily life-style, transportation, consum patterns, etc) are influencing on a wider scale the climatic status
- to build a community of people ready to jointly act on longer terms on increasing our city’s contribution in preventing further negative climate evolution
- to connect with similar groups sharing a pro-active attitude in the Climate-KIC worldwide network
Climate-KIC is Europe’s largest public-private innovation partnership focused on climate change, consisting of dynamic companies, the best academic institutions and the public sector. It is one of the three Knowledge and Innovation Communities (KICs) created in 2010 by the European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT). EIT is an EU body whose mission is to create sustainable growth by addressing climate change mitigation and adaptation.

Banat IT and Timisoara Startup Hub jointly initiate Chance2Enhance a program aiming to locally-developed techology diffusion in local companies through a first event to feature 123ContactForm tools.
One of the components of Banat IT’s mission is to build frameworks to facilitate interactions between local tech and non-tech sectors, in order to increase the usage of IT&C in the overall regional economy and the society at large, riding the global economic and technological trends.
Probably there’s no need for significant effort to note that within Timisoara/Timis County/Banat economy there is a significant rift between the top industries, driven mostly by foreign investment (IT, telecom, automotive), and the traditional ones, resulted mostly through the transformation of the old, pre-’89, “communist businesses” or emerged as startups launched by local entrepreneurs. Furthermore, it is obvious that those more dynamic tech industries products and services are targeting almost exclusively foreign clients and markets and that even Romanian tech business owners are preferring to sell to and support the more predictable, educated, and obviously richer US or EU customers, and not the local businesses, frequently operated in the same neighborhood.
