4helix+ is funded under the Interreg MED Programme. It aims at stimulating, coaching and funding creative innovation within the blue economy in the Mediterranean (MED) area, by improving the gap between the 8 Mediterranean regional maritime clusters and within their four helixes, through an open source, knowledge-sharing, and community-based approach.
The project will award innovation vouchers of 480.000 EUR to 48 selected blue MED MSMEs and Start-Ups for implementing their own creative innovation project under the expert guidance of Knowledge Providers (i.e. Cultural and Creative Industries and ‘new innovation agents’) accredited through 4helix+. A cyberspace, boot camps, transnational brokerage event, and regional info days will be organised within the project for matching between companies and innovation experts.
With its transnational partnership network and objectives, 4helix+ contributes to relevant EU macro-regional strategies and innovation policies.
The Central European Initiative-Executive Secretariat is leading the project’s communication activities (WP Communication).
