On July 19th, the Piraeus Port Authority SA organized an event that brought together all the key players of the local ecosystem of maritime surveillance sector.
The event was held in the framework of the INTERREG MED project “PROteuS – Promoting security and safety by creating a MED cluster on Maritime Surveillance” in which PPA SA participates as a partner. PROteuS aims to promote innovation, enhance skills and increase the competitiveness of SMEs that operate in sectors which relate to maritime surveillance, in the Mediterranean area. As a first step, the project will set up national networks in the 6 participating countries (France, Italy, Spain, Greece, Cyprus and Portugal) and the partners will coordinate the networks at a Mediterranean level. PPA SA is the coordinator of the Greek Node for Maritime Surveillance, acting with the support of the University of the Aegean.
The goal of the national node is to bring together all stakeholders and facilitate innovation & technology transfer among members of the Mediterranean, in order to create business opportunities at transnational level.
The objective of the event was to inform the key stakeholders on the activities of the Greek Node of PROteuS and the next steps of the project. The participants had the opportunity to become members of the Node, in order to receive the support services foreseen by the project. The services are offered free of charge to SMEs and any costs are covered by the project budget.
Mr. Geragotellis, representing KiNNO who is the external expert of PPA SA for the project, presented the concept of the project, the objective of the Maritime Surveillance cluster, the next steps as well as the added value for the companies that wish to participate to the cluster.
