Strengthening transnational cooperation, knowledge and technology transfer in development of electric vessels and fostering innovations in SMEs
The global maritime industry market has undergone disruptive changes over the past ten years, changes that have especially impacted the European shipbuilding industry. Addressing such challenges, we are taking part in a project collaboration with an international project across the EEA. Together with sectoral partners from Croatia, Poland and Norway, we will work towards a strengthening of the transnational innovation eco-system through the establishment of sustainable networks focusing on collaborative development, creating the establishment of an electric vessels development hub.
The specific outcomes of the project are:
- development of an effective technology foresight model,
- establishment of a pilot electric vessels development hub, and
- implementation of pilot projects such as:
virtual innovation hub, joint product development, start-up creation and
scale up, expert exchange and market uptake initiatives.
Working together for a green Europe
The project is funded by Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway through the EEA and Norway Grants Fund for Regional Cooperation. The Fund for Regional Cooperation supports projects tackling common European challenges through regional cross-border and transnational cooperation. The EEA and Norway Grants are funded by Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway. The Grants have two goals – to contribute to a more equal Europe,
both socially and economically – and to strengthen the
relations between Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway,
and the 15 beneficiary countries in Europe.
Project will run between July 2020 and January 2024.
