Priority Axis 1 - Innovative and smart region

Overview

Overview

Project Summary

The SHIPMENTT project aims at establishing an innovation ecosystem focused on the green sea mobility sector (reffered partially as green shipping in EUSAIR) across the ADRION area. In the medium-term, the aim is to enhance the investments in regional R&D and increase the competitiveness of the local SMEs.
Today, the innovation activity in the region is fragmented and confined to the national borders allowing limited space for regional cooperation and economic growth. SHIPMENTT will establish a network of cooperating parties with a clear plan to shape the necessary conditions for a fruitful blue growth innovation ecosystem in the spirit of transnational cooperation. Hence, the project features partners from all 8 countries of the ADRION area.  The project main outputs will be:

1. Direct 1:1 support on a) IP management and b) access to finance to 250 SMEs: to improve their chances of collborating with research institutions and attracting financial resources [short-term impact]
2. Facilitatiοn of industry-academia collaboration for 50 SMEs: via the SHIPMENTT platform [medium-term impact]
3. An all-inclusive strategy: for the development of a regional innovation ecosystem fuelled by blue-technologies in the green sea mobility field [long term impact]

The project will a) design or improve tools in the IP/access2finance space, b) implement them in a pilot environment (e.g. 1:1 support and an online showroom), c) extract conclusions about the effectiveness of their use in the region’s socio-economic and cultural context, and d) formulate a strategy for the long-term development of innovation conditions in the region.

The project presents two novelties:
1. focuses on the green sea mobility sector that has received little attention so far internationally
2. leverages on two critical elements of business strategy and innovation management: a) Access to finance and b) IP protection and exploitation - we anticipate great returns as these elements are interrelated and jointly considered in practically all businesses today.
