SmartComp - Smart competitiveness for the Central Baltic Region project seek to unite the maritime clusters of the region by strengthening existing networks as well as creating new ones in order to improve the competitiveness of the sector and to create sustainable growth possibilities through triple helix cooperation.


During the project the current situation of the maritime clusters and their future in the Central Baltic region were analysed on sectoral, corporate and regional level. The project created an understanding of the opportunities and challenges faced by the clusters, and based on that, has drawn future scenarios about the development of the Baltic Sea region maritime clusters.

The project culminated in an international SmartComp Final Conference in November 2013 in Turku, where the results and achievements of the project were presented to a wide range of participants.
