Who can become a cluster participant?
The cluster participants primarily consist of organisations from the maritime community including corporations, entrepreneurs, research communities, authorities and public entities and risk capital, but the steering committee may also allow other organisations who through their work are closely linked to the maritime industry.
Participantship is based on accepting the terms in the GCE Blue Maritime's Cluster Contract:
The cluster is funded by the Norwegian Innovation Clusters programme 50% and the participants 50%. Most of the participants shares are covered by the time and personnel spent in cluster activities. A mere 13% is covered financially. Here are the fees for 2022:
*Start-ups: 0-3 years from public registration
**Corporations: full corporation revenue will include all employees from daughter companies. If registering only a daughter company, only the employees from this organisation will be regarded as members.
