The project "MariTech Talent Programme" (MariTech Talent) is financed under the HORIZON Europe Programme, co-financed by the European Union. The consortium brings together 5 partners from 3 European countries (Bulgaria, Cyprus & Greece), who will work together to achieve its main goal – to develop a twin transition INTRApreneurship skills development programme, bringing maritime industry professionals and innovative enterprises with concrete digital solutions together in a two-way learning experience.
The programme will provide:
•Necessary twin skills for the maritime workforce
•Support to deep tech solutions providers developing key technologies for unlocking the twin transition in the maritime industry
Thе MariTech Talent programme will apply a challenge-based INTRApreneurship model which will nurture learning by working on the most pressing needs identified by the maritime companies themselves. Teams consisting of current workers in maritime sector and deep tech startups, scaleups and SMEs will work together to apply concrete solutions, undergoing the necessary training on the way. The programme will secure the required skill set for the maritime workforce related to the green and digital transition. They will acquire operational knowledge in key digital domains enablers of the twin transition in the maritime industry such as machine learning and data analysis for predictive maintenance, energy management systems, system integration, automation, remote operation, cybersecurity, and e-navigation through direct collaboration with deep tech solution providers. As a final result, maritime companies and ports will gain in-depth insights into the benefits digital and green solutions can bring to their operations.
