Pairs of Innovation (IP) and Scale-Up (SP) Partners agree on adapting a programme in a new context. IP and SP complete the online form here with main information about their organisations and programme they want to adapt. We see the selection process as an opportunity for catalysing partnerships, exploring ideas and for learning. Therefore it is long and can be time consuming, especially for finalists. It’s important to note the finalists will have their time remunerated when working on the Adaptation Plan phase. See the Eligibility and Evaluation Criteria here.
