Ecological efficiency and safety for Arctic seas

Application period: Mon 01.09.2014 - Fri 17.10.2014

Call for applications for Arctic Seas programme

The natural resources and logistical opportunities of northern sea areas create new preconditions for business for companies and for business activities of corporate networks. The area's vulnerable and challenging environment creates a need for solutions that improve efficiency and safety. Players which efficiently utilise real-time "Arctic data" will have a competitive advantage.

Solutions and know-how to be developed will, in the best of cases, have a market that extends beyond Arctic sea areas.

In this application process we are looking for

  • parallel project wholes for companies and research organisations as well as
  • multidisciplinary research projects networked with the world of business

The application process for research is directed at organisations of public research - universities, institutions of higher education, research institutions, and polytechnics. In parallel projects enterprises and research institutes implement projects in cooperation, whose content is based on the research needs of the companies.

An information event for applicants will be held on Monday, 1 September from 11:00 - 13:00 in Pasila in Helsinki (Tekes, Kyllikinportti 2).
