Key Enabled Technologies (KETs) have the potential to impact on many aspects of the society, enhancing the industrial competitiveness in Europe. The maritime sector still needs a transformation from a traditional one to a high value one which is embracing innovation and novel market opportunities developed in a sustainable manner. The KETmaritime project aims to build a cooperative network and strengthen the KETs transfer of innovation results to facilitate the emergence of new products, services and processes across the Atlantic Area.
The KETmaritime network intends to increase knowledge, identify and exchange good practices and sustainable solutions based on KETs for the marine economy and resources, in order to improve the socioeconomic situation through innovation and transnational cooperation.
This cooperative network will bring together public and private organizations (companies, public institutions,…) to reach a better integration of the scientific, industrial and financial stakeholders. Key organizations with experience in R+D, technology transfer in KETs and maritime activities will facilitate the adoption of novel technological developments and new ways of thinking into traditional maritime companies, especially SMEs. It is therefore addressed to end users and services suppliers. The use of KETs should lead not only to a higher competitiveness of the area, but also to a better protection, more safety, more lightness, longer endurance, energy efficient powering, among other improvements.
