Innovamare is an interactive web platform with the main focus on the transformation of the blue economy. Innovamare is designed as a place of connection for businesses, institutions, researchers, professionals, and users from the corporate, scientific, civil, and public sectors to address difficulties related to the Adriatic Sea’s sustainability mission by using underwater robots and sensing technologies.

The main goal of the Innovamare platform is to assist in the creation, development, and maintenance of the innovation and entrepreneurship ecosystem, as well as to serve as the central point for the realization and organization of services within the underwater robotics and sensors digital innovation hub (DIH).

The main challenges

The low competitiveness of SMEs on international markets, the efficiency of their innovation activities, human skills capacities, a lack of support schemes, and a lack of stakeholder participation and interconnections among business, research, and the government sector in blue economy sectors are listed as the main challenges in the Programme area.

To resolve these issues, the goal of Innovamare is to improve the cross-border institutional framework by collaboration, developing and implementing strategical and operational level capacity, which involves a mix of policy tools and innovation players, as a framework for the development of technological innovations for the long-term sustainability of the Adriatic Sea.

The project is built on a mission-oriented approach that, rather than emphasizing on sectors as the traditional industrial policy does, emphasizes problem-specific social concerns that many various sectors must collaborate to resolve. In this example, the goal is to enhance the effectiveness of underwater robotics and sensor innovation activities in the area of Adriatic sea sustainability as a vital strategic societal concern on a cross-border level by connecting policy tools with innovative players.
