This session features European companies with innovative and sustainable technologies in different sectors such as ICT for Maritime, Ocean clean-up, Blue Energy and Aquaculture. 

BlueInvest is an EU initiative to boost innovation and investment in sustainable technologies for the blue economy by supporting readiness and access to finance for early-stage businesses, SMEs, and scale-ups. It is enabled by the European Maritime and Fisheries Fund.

We hope to see you on Wednesday, March 10th, at 04:00 PM CET. 

Mariabox (Smart Data Buoy Platform) - CY.R.I.C Cyprus Research and Innovation Center LTD & Signalgenerix Limited -  ICT for Maritime
We offer an end-to-end real time environmental monitoring system for the sea environment. The system is scalable and entails the deployment of multipurpose data buoys able to be deployed in various environments and form ad-hoc communication networks for real time environmental monitoring of small or large areas in the sea. According to its mission, each buoy is designed to support easy integration of a vast collection of  commercially available off-the-shelf sensors placed below the sea surface and on the surface, but also novel photonics-technology-based biosensors for the detection of different pollutants and microbiological agents. The system includes a variety of different communication options (3G/4G/Microwave/satellite) which facilitates real time data acquisition, communication, and secure data storage on a dedicated IoT cloud platform. AI-enabled intelligent analytics and interfaces to user software and apps provide in real time early warning messages of an environmental disaster and environmental management analytics extremely important to environmental agencies, coast guards, the offshore industry, and the general public. | TRL: We currently implemented the system in the form of TRL7 and TRL8 and deployed the buoys and system in Limassol/Cyprus and Barcelona/Spain with excellent results. | EUR 3.0 Mn sought - Cyprus

Claim - New Naval Commercial Technical - Ocean Clean-up
In the framework of the CLAIM project, coordinated by H.C.M.R., New Naval Ltd (Greece) has developed an innovative floating boom (floating barrier) and marine litter collection and recovery system, the CLEAN "Tactical Recovery Accumulation System Hellas". This unparalleled, highly-efficient solution manages to collect and sustain litter and macroplastics at river mouths before entering into the open sea and affecting the marine ecosystem. | TRL: 6 - Demonstration - System Launch and Operations (TRL 8-9) | Greece

Wasteshark TM - Ranmarine Technology BV - Ocean Clean-up
RanMarine is building a fully autonomous docking station for its waste & data harvesting ASV’s. The SharkPod is designed to allow up to 5 ASV’s to dock, discharge waste, recharge batteries and upload captured sensor data. Its primary function is to clear pollutants, plastics and other waste material fromwaterways, with a focus on major EU Ports as launching customers in this project. | TRL: 7 – 8 (autonomy as a single ASV) | EUR 1.0 - 1.5 Mn sought -  Netherlands

TiPA - Nova Innovation LTD - Blue Energy
The ground-breaking Tidal Turbine Power Take-off Accelerator (TiPA) project has developed a high reliability, high-efficiency, cost-effective power-take-off system for a tidal turbine. The system turns tidal energy into electricity more effectively than conventional systems using a gearbox and generator. This improves the reliability and efficiency and reduces the cost of tidal energy by 29%. The technology can also be used in wave and offshore wind and can unlock a global market worth €1.3 billion. | TRL: 5 - Demonstration - System Development (TRL 6-8) | UK

AE-FishBIT - Institute of Aquaculture Torre de la Sal - CSIC - Acquaculture 
Researchers have designed a miniaturised tool called AE-FishBIT, to monitor individual farmed fish in a non-invasive manner. The device’s simultaneous measurement of physical activity and respiratory frequency sets it apart from similar devices in the market. AE-FishBIT will be of interest to aquaculture farmers and other end users who can use it to monitor fish behaviour for selective breeding and for fine-tuned adjustment of environmental conditions. | TRL: 7 | EUR 1.0 Mn sought - Spain
