Several Pre-projects Awarded Funding
Eelume, ProAnalysis and IOR Norway have each received 175.000 NOK in pre-project funding this year from GCE Ocean Technology and we invite our cluster members to apply.
GCE Ocean Technology provides financial and professional support and advice for free, to establish externally funded RDI projects for our partners and members. So far, we have succeeded in helping cluster companies in securing more than 1.35 Billion NOK in externally funded projects owned and run by cluster companies.
The projects funded so far in 2020 are:
- Eelume: Autonomous Underwater Intervention Drones
- ProAnalysis: Next generation Oil in Water Monitoring
- IOR Norway: Skin factor
All three projects received a high score on all our evaluation criteria. They are collaborating with strong R&D partners and aim to establish larger RDI project during the year.
Funding Breeds Funding
Another company that received pre-project funding last year was uSEA Technologies followed by 6.5 million NOK in funding from the Research Council of Norway to develop their active towed docking station for AUVs.
We would like to express our thanks to GCE Ocean Technology for the support with pre-project funding. Being a member in the cluster has not only been a great pleasure, but also has made an invaluable difference in our business development. Felipe Lima CEO uSEA Technologies.
