We connect innovators with end-users, to deliver market-ready innovations for EU climate resilience
Why BRIGAID Connect
Climate-related disasters such as droughts, floods and wildfires are already impacting Europe. Fortunately, innovators are developing new technologies and solutions that could make Europe more resilient. However, too few of these innovations reach the market.
Why? Because innovators often lack the skills, resources, and contacts needed to bridge the gap from innovation to implementation.
In 2016, these disasters caused more than €20 billion of damages across Europe.
We urgently need innovators who can not only generate great ideas, but who can bring them to life;
Our story: BRIGAID CONNECT builds on a legacy of scientific excellence and innovation impact.
In 2016, we embarked on BRIGAID: a four-year EU-funded research and innovation project to accelerate the development and spread of novel climate resilience solutions.
We found and funded innovators, and helped them turn their ideas into real climate adaptation solutions.
BRIGAID CONNECT extends this legacy. We are now an independent non-profit initiative, founded by the BRIGAID project’s interdisciplinary experts.
Our aim: to extend the BRIGAID support to innovators across Europe, supporting them to develop and implement climate resilience innovations across the continent.
What have we already achieved
We have showcased
125 climate resilience innovations on the Climate Innovation Window
We developed 8 Communities of Innovation of collaborating innovators, end-users, scientists, and financiers.
