Discover the 10 Scale-up projects to be supported in 2023
The Forum is not only about these large deliverables, but it also takes a bottom-up approach to accelerate concrete initiatives. The Paris Peace Forum continues to demonstrate that in a deteriorated international environment it is still possible to advance governance solutions, scale up projects and launch new initiatives. Since its creation, the Forum has supported and accompanied more than 400 projects that respond to the cross-border challenges of our time.
Within the dedicated Space for Solutions, these projects exchanged with public and private stakeholders and presented their concrete answers to international challenges.
At the end of the Forum, ten projects were chosen by a jury to benefit from a dedicated and customized support for a full year.
"The Paris Peace Forum will not end today. It will carry on through the work that we will invest behind the scenes over the course of the next year to support the ten selected projects."»
The Scale-up Program
The Scale-up Program (SCUP) was launched in 2018 to provide year-long customized (non-financial) support towards the development of 10 of the projects showcased at the Paris Peace Forum. The SCUP is an accelerator that mobilizes resources from within the PPF Secretariat and the world-class PPF community to help strengthen and grow these solutions and amplify their impact.
