The Climate-KIC Scaler Programme brings together providers with scaling services and innovators in need of support to scale their proven innovations. The providers include Climate-KIC and its partner network.

What is Scaler? 

Climate-KIC’s Scaler Programme provides funding and support for the development and implementation of scaling services that can be applied to proven innovations proposed by our community. As such, the Scaler Programme can be considered in two parts:

  1. For potential service providers to gain support in building their scaling services that would be relevant to Climate-KIC supported innovations. This might typically include larger organisations able to offer education and access to supply-chains, markets and finance.
  2. For potential service providers to gain support in building their scaling services that would be relevant to Climate-KIC supported innovations. This might typically include larger organisations able to offer education and access to supply-chains, markets and finance.2. For the Climate-KIC community who have proven (eg. demonstrated) innovations that need support in scaling for greater impact. This might typically include SMEs (small and medium enterprises) that don’t have the resources or connections to deliver rapid growth.

Why Apply?

For service providers, the Scaler Programme provides additional opportunities to develop and supply services. For SMEs, the opportunity to grow your enterprise to a more mature business model and achieve greater climate-relevant impact.

Eligible Applicants 

For Part 1, Climate-KIC Partners are eligible to apply for what is called Scaler Instrument funding to develop their services.

Part 2 is eligible to SMEs that have validated their business models through sales or having successfully passed through Climate-KIC’s Demonstrator Programme.

Climate-KIC’s Innovation Programmes are specifically aimed at partner organisations already in our network. If you are not a partner, please do get in contact with your local innovation lead at Climate-KIC. You can find contact details below.

Example Scaler Project:

Oasis HUB

The insurance industry needs a clear understanding of rising climate-related and natural hazard risk in order to allocate capital, meet regulatory requirements and price risk in specific regions. By catalysing the rapid uptake of transparent and affordable new data, models, software, tools and services, the Oasis HUB offers the insurance sector improved understanding of future uncertainty around climate change and natural hazards.

Climate-KIC have been a strategic partner of Oasis from the outset, and remain committed to attracting new partners and funding for Oasis. Participation in the Scaler Programme has enabled Oasis to catalyse and scale the global market for adaptation goods and services.
