TARGET GROUPS

  • Local, regional and national public authorities
  • General public
  • SMEs
  •  Regional and local development agencies, chambers of commerce and other business support organisations
  •  Universities, techonology transfer institutions, research institutions
  • Education and training organisations as well as social partners and labor-market institutions

CLASS 4.0 project main goal is to strengthen competitiveness and innovation capacity of SMEs in the Adriatic-Ionian area, especially focusing on the opportunities offered by Data driven solutions in the circular and sea economy.

The project will integrate and enhance best practices and previous projects' outputs to: 

  • Increase awareness: to have SMEs understanding the opportunities, we will give high visibility to "relatable" case studies, with focus on the returns from investments in innovation capitalizing INVESTINFISH outputs
  • Bridge the skill gap: the skill gap is a critical barrier that prevents many SMEs to adopt Data-driven solutions. Methodologies such as the ones developed in the BLUE KEP project, can help to create an environment more favorable to adopt data-driven solutions
  • Foster technology transfer: reinforce technology transfer and innovation process, with focus on Data Driven Solution in the Blue Economy, capitalizing the BEAT project outputs

To ensure that these results are reached effectively and efficiently, the project will make use of a specific methodology  - Future Thinking - a systematic method of exploring alternative futures in a long term vision, that improves the quality of decision making in a Volatile, Uncertain, Complex and Ambiguous environment.

The process guarantees greater sharing, transparency and efficiency in defining the implementation steps and outputs, ensuring objectivity and helping to make better policy by understanding the long-term issues and challenges that shape the sustainable development of the area.
