The principle aim of ProtoAtlantic is to develop and validate a model for the prototyping and exploitation of innovative ideas in the maritime sector in the Atlantic Area
ProtoAtlantic will develop a model for the prototyping and exploitation of innovative ideas in the maritime sector. The project will focus on three well-defined sectors: Renewable Energy, Marine Robotics and Blue biotechnologies.
ProtoAtlantic will identify product innovation capacity in the maritime sector willing to address emerging markets in a co-creation model with start-up communities, research centres, universities and Local Authorities. The project exploits existing co-working facilities and blue acceleration programs specialized in the marine sector and replicates success stories.
ProtoAtlantic will implement acceleration programs, creating a path from idea to market access where a structured process is used to manage product innovation. The acceleration programs will attract innovative ideas, creating a unique ecosystem where the creation and development of ideas will melt with a methodology that will cover from business model to market validation, including test phases. This circle will be completed with the launch to market of the most innovative and feasible ideas.
