Support to innovators

BRIGAID clears the path to deliver innovations on floods, droughts and extreme weather to the market through the assessment and improvement of:

Technical + Social + Market Readiness

By advancing these three factors simultaneously, BRIGAID smoothens the development path, because technical, social and market requirements can be incorporated in the design, business model and market approach early on.

1. Technical readiness

Technical readiness is the performance and effectiveness of an innovation to reduce climate-related risks, as shown in field tests and operational environments

2. Social Readiness

Social Readiness is the extent to which an innovation complies with public and private end users’ priorities and needs, as well as the organizational and governance requirements.

BRIGAID assists in defining and performing the required tests to improve technical and social readiness of an innovation through a Testing and Implementation Framework (TIF) for Climate Adaptation measures.

3. Market Readiness

Market Readiness is the potential of an innovation to develop a solid business case and attract investors.

BRIGAID will improve the market readiness of innovations through the Market Analysis Framework (MAF+):
a tested and improved guidance framework enabling innovators to increase their chances of commercial success.
