SmartComp

SmartComp project aims to unite the maritime clusters of the region and to strengthen existing networks as well as to create new ones in order to improve competitiveness of the sector and to create sustainable growth possibilities for the sector through triple helix cooperation.

During the project the current situation of the maritime cluster and its future in the Central Baltic region will be analysed on sectoral, corporate and regional level. The project creates an understanding of the opportunities and challenges faced by the cluster, and based on that, draws future scenarios about the development of the Central Baltic maritime cluster. This creates the basis for further research, training and consultation, as well as for branding and policy development.

Outputs and results:

  • Analysis on the current situation of the maritime cluster and its future in the Central Baltic region
  • An understanding of the opportunities and challenges faced by the cluster
  • Future scenarios about the development of the Baltic Sea maritime cluster
  • Brand strategy for the Central Baltic maritime clusters
  • SmartComp triple helix database
  • Policy recommendations for supporting maritime clusters of the region
