1 Reputation enhanced by innovation - Call for proposals in module 3 The Nordic Innovation Centre on behalf of the Nordic partners of the programme Innovation in the Nordic marine sector invites to submit project applications to module 3 of the programme. The Nordic marine sector has been innovative when considering effectiveness in harvesting and processing, but less in developing products and services for emerging and existing markets. A transformation from being a sector supplying raw material to becoming a supplier of market oriented products requires innovation, where know- how about the markets and the relations with the users are essential. The module 3 in the innovation programme emphasises user driven innovation in the marine sector, defining users as being part of marine value chain and/or end users. Projects in this module offer long term cooperation between partners with special focus on strengthening business to business (B2B), business to research (B2R) and business to customer/consumer (B2C) cooperation in the Nordic region. Projects in this module shall contribute to at least one of the following: 1) More sustainable marine sector 2) Higher quality of marine raw material and products 3) Diversity of seafood or other marine based products Innovation within these three themes defined above is essential in order to maintain and further strengthen good reputation of the Nordic marine sector as innovative and thereby profitable and competitive. The total Nordic financial amount for this call is NOK , but can be extended in case of national co-financing of projects. In that case the national co-financing will cover the national participant(s) cost. The Nordic financial contribution has not been divided in advance between these three themes defined above. Funding decisions will be made based on evaluation of all incoming projects according to defined criteria. Deadline for project proposals within all three themes is August 8 th 2011 at 15:00 Norwegian time 1. Background The Nordic innovation programme in the marine sector was launched in The programme is a joint Nordic effort for enhancing innovation in the Nordic marine sector and thereby its competitiveness and profitability. The innovation programme is divided in three modules. The first module, Dialog and networking, was carried out in 2010 and findings from that module is the foundation for this call announced here as part of module 3. Side 1

5 Description of the three themes of this call: 1. Sustainable development Sustainability is high on the agenda in the Nordic countries. The marine sector, as a major player in the economy in many of the Nordic countries cannot be excluded from contributing to sustainable development and green growth in the Nordic region. Sustainable utilisation and economical maximisation of the marine raw material is essential in order to improve profitability and competitiveness of the Nordic marine sector. Whether requirements about sustainability are market or regulatory driven the Nordic marine sector has to react. The overall aim of this theme sustainable development is to support the sector to be proactive when considering sustainable development, utilising it as driver for innovation, creating competitive edge and contributing to a good reputation of Nordic marine products and services. About the project The project applied for can approach sustainability for the whole marine value chain or part(s) of it. Innovation in the marine sector often takes place in close cooperation with suppliers of technology and services. It is important to state in the project application, not only to economical value of the project results for the marine companies or marine value chain, but also the market potential of the product and/or services developed by the supplier in the project. Sustainability in the context of this call comprises both environmental and economical sustainability*, meaning that the solutions developed in the project (business model or product) has to be economical sustainable. Sustainable resource management as fishery policy is not included in this call. The project shall have concrete results and describe by whom and how the results will be used to enhance sustainable development in the marine sector. Projects including strategic cooperation between businesses to develop new products or services are favoured, and will score higher in the evaluation. The project applied for should approach one or more of the following: New and innovative solutions for optimising use of marine raw materials (including bio tech) New and innovative solutions for more sustainable harvesting of marine resources New and innovative solutions for more sustainable aquaculture (fresh water included) New and innovative solutions in processing and packaging enhancing sustainability (including cooling, freezing and packaging technology) New and innovative solutions in documenting and communicating sustainability in the marine sector * Economic sustainability is the term used to identify various strategies that make it possible to utilize available resources to best advantage. The idea is to promote usage of those resources that is both efficient and responsible, and likely to provide long-tem benefits. In the case of a business operation, economic sustainability calls for using resources so that the business continues to function over a number of years, while consistently returning a profit.

6 2. Quality of marine raw material and products The reputation of the Nordic marine sector is strongly linked to the quality of the product it supplies to the market. Good quality of marine based products is not only determined at the last stage of the marine value chain but depends on good treatment/processing of the raw material throughout the whole chain. The overall goal with the theme Quality of marine raw material and products is to enhance innovation that maintains and/or improves quality throughout the marine value chain; of marine raw material to use as seafood, fresh or frozen, and/or other marine based products. Innovative solutions enabling product development and marketing of fresh seafood products are especially welcomed. About the project The project shall have concrete results and describe by whom and how the results will be used to enhance improve quality of marine raw material and products in the marine sector. The project applied for can approach quality for the whole marine value chain or specific part(s) of it. Innovation in the marine sector often happens in close cooperation with suppliers of technology and services. It is important not only to state in the project application economical value of the project results for the marine companies, but also the market potential of the product and/or services developed by the supplier in the project. Projects including strategic cooperation between businesses to develop new products or services are favoured, and will score higher in the evaluation. The project applied for should approach one or more of the following: New and innovative processing solutions improving the quality of the marine raw material New and innovative solutions for documentation and proof of quality of seafood and other marine based products New and innovative solutions for enabling development of fresh seafood product (s), (for example cooling, freezing, packaging or other methods) New and innovative logistics solutions and/or business models enabling distribution and marketing of seafood products, especially fresh ones Side 6

7 3. Diversity of seafood or other marine based products The Nordic marine sector is characterised as supplier of marine raw material, and less as supplier of innovative products for end users or consumers. Diversification of marine products is important and can increase profitability in the Nordic marine sector. Good understanding of the market and contact with the users/consumers is essential for innovating new markets and development and marketing of diverse seafood and marine based products. The overall goal with the theme Diversity of seafood or other marine based products is to promote a user driven approach when innovating new seafood or marine based products. The home market in the Nordic region is not fully exploited, therefore a special emphasis is put on new and innovative marine products for the home market, utilising the Nordic region as a test lab. Although the focus is primarily on the Nordic home market, it does not exclude projects concerning new and innovative seafood and marine based products and market innovation related to new markets. About the project The project shall have concrete results and describe by whom and how the results will be used to enhance introduction of new and innovative seafood and marine based products in a market. Active participation of the user or representatives of market and consumers is required in the project(s). Projects including strategic cooperation between businesses to develop new products or services are favoured, and will score higher in the evaluation. The project applied for should approach one or more of the following: Creation of platform for user or market driven product development with high industrial engagement and relevance Enhance market innovation in existing and emerging markets, improving the company s mix of target markets and how these are served Market and product innovation aiming at utilising more marine raw material for human consume Utilisation of new species Side 7

11 3. Living lab, platform for open innovation During the most recent years, the field of User Driven Innovation (UDI) has intensified to include users in the creation and development process. The Living Lab concept involves research, development and design, by, with and for users, and should thus enable prototyping of novel interaction concepts while resembling natural environments of use. About the Living lab The concept Living lab is based on a systematic user co-creation approach integrating research and innovation processes. These are integrated through the exploration, experimentation and evaluation of innovative ideas, scenarios, concepts and related technological artefacts in real life use cases. Such use cases involve user communities, not only as observed subjects but also as a source of creation. This approach allows all involved stakeholders to concurrently consider both the global performance of a product or service and its potential adoption by users. The Living lab will generate environments and working methods which increase the innovation capability of companies and organisations, and enhance the users important role in the innovation process. The Living Lab process The living lab process, which integrates both user-centred research and open innovation, is based on a maturity spiral concurrently involving a multidisciplinary team in the following four main activities: Co-creation: bring together technology push and application pull (i.e. crowdsourcing, crowdcasting) into a diversity of views, constraints and knowledge sharing that sustains the ideation of new scenarios, concepts and related artefacts. Exploration: engage all stakeholders, especially user communities, at the earlier stage of the cocreation process for discovering emerging scenarios, usages and behaviours through live scenarios in real or virtual environments (e.g. virtual reality, augmented reality, mixed reality). Experimentation: implement the proper level of technological artefacts to experience live scenarios with a large number of users while collecting data which will be analysed in their context during the evaluation activity. Evaluation: assess new ideas and innovative concepts as well as related technological artefacts in real life situations through various dimensions such as socio-ergonomic, socio-cognitive and socio-economic aspects; make observations on the potentiality of a viral adoption of new concepts and related technological artefacts through a confrontation with users' value models. Further information concerning Living lab can be found here Side 11
