Project goal:

The seed money project is intended to facilitate the process of preparation of full-scale projects to be implemented and financed under the Interreg South Baltic Programme regular calls for proposals. It aims at stimulating the development of high-quality projects and serves as an incentive for potential beneficiaries to convince local decision-makers to develop a project idea, as the respective costs are co-financed from the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF).

Main activities within the project: 
  • Organization of the cross-border workshops that will be held at the Gdańsk Science and Technology Park.
  • Creation of a project concept for a planned regular project, which will consist in producing a concept design for an autonomous or semi-autonomous , ecological hybrid-driven vessel, supporting the operations of offshore wind farms in the Baltic Sea and other seas. t/he proposed craft will be designed as a Service Operational Vessel with all the legal documents required.
