Content: In Southwest Finland, there is a huge amount of expertise in smart maritime
safety solutions, but it is fragmented into many companies, some of which are
small, as well as several universities. The project aims to activate potential
export companies to utilize the synergies of the group of companies and the RDI
know-how and infrastructures of universities in the development of
internationalization capabilities. The SafeSea test platform created by the
project is a reliable and credible way to verify the functionality of digital
maritime safety solutions. The test platform supports SME companies developing
digital maritime safety solutions in global competition. The test platform
consists of: 1) cooperation, 2) test area, 3) agreements, 4) digital solutions,
5) test methods and 6) international credibility. The SafeSea test platform
will enable SMEs in the region to increase their RDI investment and develop
their products for the international market.
