INTENS sets sail with EUR 13 million funding
Coordinated by VTT, the industry-research consortium is known as INTENS and will seek innovations and cutting-edge solutions by relying on two key Finnish competences – digital know-how and maritime expertise. The purpose of INTENS is to equip the Finnish maritime value chain with digital solutions and build a competitive edge for the Finnish maritime cluster in energy-efficient and low-emission shipping. The project will run from 2018 to 2020 amidst an emerging digital and green boom in the industry. Business Finland’s Arctic Seas programme supported the project with 5.6 million euros in funding, and its expectations are high: “Based on the knowledge and skills formed in INTENS the companies will develop new components, systems, software products and knowledge-based services with higher added value”, says Business Finland chief advisor Matti Säynätjoki.
