We introduce BRIGAID Connect

A “one-stop-shop” for supporting climate adaptation innovations


BRIGAID is a 4-year project (2016-2020) under EU Horizon2020 aimed to effectively bridge the gap between innovators and end-users in resilience to floods, droughts and extreme weather.

Europe is particularly prone to these natural hazards and evidence is now ever stronger that damages will increase. Evaluations also show a huge potential to reduce these risks through adaptation strategies.

BRIGAID TOOLS: Practical support for innovators to get from
an idea to a signed deal

BRIGAID supports climate innovations with testing, business development and online visibility through several practical tools:

TIF: Test and Implementation Framework

BRIGAID’s Test and Implementation Framework for climate innovations provides a structured and systematic method for solution developers to move their idea forward in the TRL scale.

The TIF Tool is designed to help innovators identify possible technical, environmental, sectoral and societal concerns that their innovations may raise early on –and iteratively throughout the development of their innovation– so that they may modify their designs to better address their end users’ needs. The TIF Tool should be applied at critical points in the development process at which innovators should pause to identify and address technical, environmental, sectoral and social concerns.

MAF+: The Market Analysis Framework

The Market Analysis Framework is an online collaboration system that enables innovators to identify business opportunities, define their market, recognize and evaluate their competitors, and conceive a suitable business model.

The MAF+ aims to trigger change in European innovation by getting innovators, researchers and entrepreneurs comfortable with putting business development and marketing concepts into practice. The goal is to increase the innovators’ capacity to recognize actual market needs and incorporate them into their product development process. The underlying vision is “European innovation that is user-centric and globally competitive”.

CIW: The Climate Innovation Window

The Climate Innovation Window is a portal created to showcase and facilitate the market uptake of new solutions to climate change adaptation.

The CIW is an online interactive platform presenting innovations and connecting them to end users and qualified investors. Innovations are defined here as new products, processes and forms of organization into adaptation solutions to climatic events, and which are in their final stages of development. The use of the BRIGAID approach ensures the generation of key information for end-users and investors and allows a reliable comparison among different potential solutions.
