Digitalisation is a global trend in the maritime industry, with ship autonomy as a growing trend. The industry needs smart, safe and cost-efficient technology solutions, which need to be tested in realistic conditions.
This is where FIP-S2@Novia comes into the picture. We offer a wide range of knowledge and understanding in smart technologies, maritime operations and maritime simulations. With our interdisciplinary approach, we help our customers in creating new solutions to complex, multisystem environments in the maritime domain.
Maritime companies and their operations are international by nature. This can be a challenge for research and development, which is often organised on a national level. FIP-S2@Novia partners Novia and Fraunhofer CML share the vision of creating a truly international ecosystem for maritime research, specifically for smart shipping.
FIP-S2@Novia is built on years of co-operation and mutual trust. Novia and Fraunhofer CML have worked together in several joint EU-projects. Now they join forces in long-term co-operation.
Fraunhofer CML is part of the Fraunhofer Gesellschaft. It is the strongest applied research organisation in Europe, with more than 75 institutes specialising in various fields of technology in Germany and in a global co-operation network.
Based in Novia’s Aboa Mare maritime campus in Turku, Finland, FIP-S2@Novia offers the Finnish and the Northern European maritime industry a more direct access to the Fraunhofer network for the first time.
FIP-S2@Novia covers a wide range of applied research services from feasibility studies and specific software and technology developments to testing of third-party systems.
We offer cost-efficient and high quality R&D services with strong expertise in smart shipping, maritime operations and maritime simulations. We are also building up a broad testing architecture of maritime digital twins and interfaces.
FIP-S2@Novia serves a wide range of actors in the maritime cluster. They can be technology developers, navigational equipment manufacturers, engine and machine automation providers, shipping companies, ports, maritime authorities or simulator providers, to name a few.
We serve a variety of needs in the maritime industry – from rapid testing and development to long-term collaborations. We are here for you, whether you are an established actor in the maritime sector or wanting to get into the market with a promising solution. Do not hesitate to contact us!
FIP-S2@Novia is a part of a larger research and product development ecosystem for smart shipping in Turku region, Finland. We collaborate with the local universities and the global Fraunhofer network when additional research expertise and facilities are required.
