BRIGAID: BRIdging the GAp for Innovations in Disaster resilience

Funding H2020 EU Framework Programme for Research and Innovation
Duration May, 2016 to April, 2020
Summary

The objective of the BRIGAID project is to provide structural support for innovations in climate adaptation by developing a combination of testing and implementation methods, as well as market and investment/financing tools, that are expected to become a standard for climate adaptation innovations.

CRED works on identifying, selecting and improving technological and non-technological innovations designed to protect or mitigate the impact of extreme weather events. 

CRED is also involved in the development of a comprehensive, standardised methodology (the Test and Implementation Framework, or TIF) for testing and implementing climate adaptation measures, in particular to assess their potential to mitigate risks from floods, droughts, and extreme weather.
