Periscope Partners meet in Hamburg to accelerate trans-regional project development

11 March 2019 - Published by Stig Marthinsen

The meeting focussed on practical measures to drive forward the most promising ideas identified during idea jams and ranked by industry. Partners exchanged ideas and made practical plans to organise the upcoming trans-regional trend jams. Particular attention was paid to stakeholder engagement and methods to ensure the involvement of SMEs and those in blue industries.

The afternoon of the first day featured a visit to an innovation hub, this time to ZAL – the Centre of Applied Aeronautical Research. ZAL is the technological research and development network of the civil aviation industry in Hamburg, with the aim to continuously secure and expand the world's third largest site of civil aviation. Periscope partners were particularly interested in the overlaps and synergies with the maritime sector.
