Through three pilot projects, INNO2MARE addresses some of the key challenges in maritime education and training, maritime security and safety, and the efficiency of energy conversion and management systems.

The project will not only increase citizen involvement in the innovation process and teach smart skills, but also reduce the innovation gap by connecting the innovation actors within the various ecosystems.

To this end, the participants in this project will define a number of common actions and carry out these actions together. Various Belgian organisations share their expertise and experience for this purpose.

Participants: ISKRADIGITEH, BSC & Association for Technical Culture of Slovenia (Slovenia);  Rijeka University, STEP RI (Science & Technology Park of the University of Rijeka), MS TECH, Maritime Center of Excellence, Regional Development Agency of the Primorje-Gorski Kotar Province & Centre for Technical Culturein Rijeka (Croatia); and University of Antwerp & Antwerp Maritime Academy (Belgium).

Blue Cluster's role: Blue Cluster acts as an associated partner in this project, to support University of Antwerp and the Maritime Academy. 

With the support of: the European Commissie within the scope of Horizon Europe
