The Climate-KIC Scaler Programme provides funding and support that helps proven innovations and market-ready solutions to reach the next stage of replication.
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 for two different groups:
- 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.
- 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. For the Climate-KIC community who have proven innovations that need support in scaling for greater impact. This might typically include small and medium enterprises that don’t have the resources or connections to deliver rapid growth.
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.
- 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 interested but not yet a partner, please do get in contact with your local innovation lead at Climate-KIC.
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.
