The InnovaMare project is designed to develop and establish a model of innovation ecosystem in the field of underwater robotics and sensors for the purposes of monitoring, control and surveillance of pollution in the Adriatic Sea. The main purpose of the InnovaMare project is to raise cross-border cooperation between science and the private sector to a higher level and to facilitate the involvement of SMEs in international research networks.
As part of the InnovaMare project, co-financed by the Interreg Italy - Croatia 2014-2020 program, one of the activities is the development of the Living Lab methodology and the concept of establishing the Adriatic Sea Living Lab for research and development of underwater robotics and sensors for monitoring, control and prevention of submarine pollution. Living Lab methodology means the interconnection of the research sector (universities, institutes) and entities related to innovation. In this way, the developed innovations approach the real market because they reflect its real needs and requirements. The purpose of the Living Lab is to create a common space where users and researchers can develop and test digital services, processes and new ways of working.
In the InnovaMare project, the goal is to create a prototype of an innovative robotic solution as a platform for the development of solutions for monitoring and predicting marine pollution. Therefore, the project partners of the InnnovaMare project will jointly develop and establish a model of innovation ecosystem, and this model will be developed in a way that will be applicable in other regions / countries as well as in the blue economy as a driver of global competitiveness. The aim is, through the established Living Lab, to provide support to all stakeholders involved, and especially small and medium-sized enterprises, in their innovation process.
With the aim of developing the Living Lab methodology and the concept of establishing the Living Lab, two workshops are organized for project partners (members of the partner consortium on the InnovaMare project) and relevant stakeholders. At the workshops, in addition to educating the participants, an adequate methodology and the final concept of the Living Lab of the Adriatic Sea will be developed.
The first workshop will be held on February 11, 2021 online, from 10.00 to 14.30, organized by the Croatian Chamber of Economy, the leading partner in the project. The workshop will be held through the TEAMS platform, and the working language is English.
