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's mission is to provide integral support for innovations for climate adaptation, focusing on climate-driven disasters like floods, droughts and extreme weather in order to bridge the gap between innovators and end-users. BRIGAID offers state-of-the-art, scientific knowledge and cutting-edge methods for advancing the socio-technical readiness of innovations. BRIGAID also offers networking opportunities and supports the development of successful business plans.

BRIGAID clears the path to deliver innovations to the market through the assessment and improvement of Technical, Social and Market readiness. BRIGAID aims to become the quality label for the development of innovations for climate adaptation and risk reduction from climate-related disaster impacts in Europe and beyond.
