Funding open for Highlands and Islands green innovations in marine sector

Businesses operating in marine sectors in the Highlands and Islands have until 6 July to apply for funding to help make offshore production and transport green, clean and sustainable.

Highlands and Islands Enterprise (HIE) is a partner in the multi-national GreenOffshoreTech project. The project aims to boost cross-sectoral innovation among groups of SMEs using one or more enabling technologies to develop sustainable products, processes or services in four offshore sectors.

SMEs with innovative business ideas to develop green, clean and sustainable products, services or processes are encouraged to apply to the first call for proposal, which aims to support up to 50 businesses. Winning project ideas will be funded with up to €60,000 and offered support to develop their projects and to collaborate with international partners to penetrate the market.

The project focuses on aquaculture, renewable energy, oil and gas and waterborne transport sectors. It seeks solutions from four topic areas - advanced materials, advanced manufacturing and digitalisation, environment technologies and new energy carriers.
