EMPORIA4KT project launches a Call for Blue Economy

Researchers are invited to submit Early Stage Technologies related to Blue Economy

The Blue Economy Technology Transfer Programme, organised and led by the EMPORIA4KT project, will provide researchers with the unique opportunity to get free, expert support in developing their Early Stage Technologies (EST) route to market.

Researchers resident in France, Ireland, Portugal, Spain and the UK are invited to submit Early Stage Technologies related to the Blue Economy. Selected ESTs (3 per country) will have commercialisation routes developed by national research teams. Each team will receive expert advice and training from mentors at EMPORIA4KT partner institutions.

According to António Grilo, the project coordinator “Despite the significant research and investment that goes into developing Blue Economy technologies, they often fail to progress from the lab to market. The expert mentorship provided by our programme supports technology owners and researchers to turn their ideas into commercially viable products”.

EMPORIA4KT works towards the design and implementation of actions between triple helix players to foster innovation and competitiveness within Blue Economy sectors. Led by Faculdade de Ciências e Tecnologia da Universidade Nova de Lisboa, in Portugal, this project has a consortium of 12 partners from the 5 Atlantic countries and a total budget of 2.3 million euros until February 2022.
