West Sweden has a strong maritime tradition and a maritime identity, with many globally competitive companies, including some world leaders in their segments, as well as strong research and educational environments. Gothenburg is today Scandinavia's largest transport and logistics node with the port of Gothenburg as the center. The region has a maritime cluster of subcontractors, with the opportunity to develop new concepts for ships, logistics and technology solutions.
The working group Maritime operations is focusing on traditional shipping and include everything from design and construction of ships to technology installed onboard and delivered by subcontractors. The concept of maritime operations also includes development in new areas, such as qualified missions for offshore shipping, short sea shipping and inland waterway shipping. Efforts in this area shall stimulate the development of technology and solutions concerning environmental issues and safety.
