The FANBEST & Marine-i Projects will hold a Discovery Room on the 18th of February (10-12pm GMT) organized by the University of Exeter. The event will explore opportunities to assist SMEs developing innovative products or services for the Atlantic Blue Economy. SMEs active in the most important Blue Economy sectors such as Ocean Energy, Offshore Wind, Aquaculture, Coastal Tourism, Marine Bio-Technology and related sub-sectors are particularly welcome to apply.
The aim of the discovery room will be to engage with SMEs that are interested in a free of charge coaching programme, that will monitor the implementation of innovative product/services development and help the start and scale up phase of the SME. SMEs will have the possibility for a pitch presentation to highlight their innovative product or service for the Atlantic Blue Economy.
The Discovery Room will enable businesses to understand the opportunities that the offered coaching scheme represents for their business. It will also provide an opportunity to identify the most suitable businesses to take part in the limited coaching service.
