Energy Valley, VIKEN Teknologiklynge and SAMS Norway, are joining forces to help our cluster companies and SMEs at Viken fylkeskommune. They will take full advantage of participating in GreenOffshoreTech.
Daniel Miravalles, Head of Business Development at Energy Valley, Tore Ausland, Business Manager at Viken Teknologiklynge 4.0, Pål Teien, Business Development Advisor at Viken Teknologiklynge 4.0 and Torun Degnes CEO of SAMS Norway, met for a kickoff meeting for The Ocean of Tomorrow project in March. Here they discussed the project plan, responsibilities, budget, and upcoming activities.
The 3 clusters complement each other and can together facilitate new value propositions and value chains. The starting point for the collaboration is the granting EU project H2020 Green OffshoreTech (GOT), aimed at SMEs. The Ocean of Tomorrow (OOT) project will enable the cluster companies to take full advantage of participation in GOT.
The sectors addressed are offshore wind energy, offshore aquaculture, green transition for offshore oil and gas, and waterborne green transport.
About Green Offshore Tech
GreenOffshoreTech is a Cluster Facilitated Project with the purpose of supporting innovation in SMEs, fostering the development of the emerging Blue Economy industries by enabling new cross-sectoral and cross-border value chains based on shared challenges, and the deployment of key enabling technologies (KET).
The Ocean of Tomorrow project will contribute to building new competence for the cluster members. By further developing the competence that already exists in the three clusters, they will connect the competence with the possibilities in the Green OffshoreTech project. The result will be new technology and products, increased market knowledge, and a larger international network for the cluster companies.
First call: spring 2022. This will include direct financial support and tailored business support services. The available financing through GOT is around 30 million NOK, up to 600K NOK per initiative, and tailored business support services.
