The BLUE_BOOST project has launched a transnational Call for the Expression of Interest of Knowledge Providers (KPs EoI) open to Research/Development/Innovation bodies and skilled enterprises experts in Blue Growth, as well as to non-institutional new innovation agents (such as fab-labs, makers, co-working spaces, innovation hubs, etc.) in all the ADRION eligible territories.

Experts in the above mentioned fields and thus potential KPs are invited to register in the BLUE_BOOST KPs’ Gallery (database), where they will have the opportunity to gain the visibility at transnational level and broaden their professional network, but in particular to participate in the BLUE_BOOST Transnational Innovation Voucher Scheme. This scheme entails at least 35 vouchers of max 10.000,00 euros each, that will be allocated for innovation-driven project proposals jointly drafted by the voucher beneficiaries, i.e. Blue MSMEs & Start-Ups from 7 project areas[1] active in Blue Growth sectors, jointly with Knowledge Providers. This way, selected companies will be able to choose a KP from the KPs’ Gallery and, thanks to the vouchers, will benefit from both financial resources and professional coaching offered to innovate their ‘blue’ business.

Knowledge Providers willing to participate in the BLUE_BOOST Transnational Innovation Voucher Scheme, must submit their Expression of Interest online by 30/06/2019 at midnight CET. Apply at

For KPs wishing to be simply registered in BLUE_BOOST KPs Gallery, in order to gain visibility and benefit from the project’s networking opportunities, regardless of the above mentioned project’s Innovation Vouchers opportunities, the Call will remain open until the end of project – 31/10/2019.
