CONSORTEX partners meeting hosted by Cork Institute of Technology

European Internationalisation Maritime Consortia in the shipbuilding ancillary industries

Representatives from seven partner regions arrived in Cork on 12 June for a two day meeting of the Consortex project - an initiative funded by the Interreg Atlantic Area Programme through the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF). The project has a budget of €1.6 million, over 24 months and seeks to improve the competitiveness of the shipbuilding sector in the Atlantic Area.

The project, which kicked off 6 months ago in Bilbao aims to form at least five export consortia consisting of six or more European interregional SME’s specialised in the manufacture of certain built-in packages of naval production (bridge, engine room, accommodation and deck) for a certain type of shipbuilding: offshore vessels, marine power plants, cruise ships and scientific vessels, to improve their market positioning, sign contracts and make international sales.

The first element of the partners meeting focused on sharing data for the Economic Sector and Territories Diagnosis and Supply and Agents Analysis – critical foundation components for the project to develop collaborative export consortia across the Atlantic Area.

CONSORTEX project, entitled "European Internationalisation Maritime Consortia", is led by Fórum Maritimo Vasco based in Bilbao, and its partnership includes: Fórum Maritimo Vasco (Bilbao, Spain); Fórum Oceano (Norte, Portugal); Associação das Indústrias Navais (Lisbon, Portugal); Cork Institute of Technology (Cork, Ireland); National Maritime (UK)  Clúster del Sector Naval Gallego (Galicia, Spain) and Bretagne Pôle Naval (Bretagne, France).
