The goal of the project is to motivate innovation and cooperation between SMEs in the offshore and maritime sectors. Furthermore the goal is to develop the ideas that may be present in the company and prepare them to join an EU project. Thus, Danish companies are required to participate in larger EU applications either as partners or lead partners.
The project is aimed at helping small and medium-sized enterprises in the maritime sector and the offshore sector to become more innovative. Both by increasing the knowledge sharing and synergy between the two industries and educational institutions as well as concrete efforts that help businesses through the process from idea to reality.
To accomplish this task, there are three strong project partners: The two cluster organizations Offshoreenergy.dk and Fyns Maritime Cluster and the Southern Danish EU Office in Brussels.
The project also aims to mature and support innovation projects in SMEs for the submission of major EU applications in national as well as cross-border projects.
Furthermore, it is also the purpose of the project to strengthen the participating partners with a competence lift within Facilitation of innovation projects.
