EUCISE2020 - European test bed for the maritime Common Information Sharing Environment in the 2020 perspectivewww.eucise.eu1.12.2014 0:00:0031.8.2018 0:00:00International RDI3 RunningEUCISE2020 - European test bed for the maritime Common Information Sharing Environment in the 2020 perspective (Combination of Collaborative Project and Coordination and Support Action: Pre-Operational Validation (POV), funded by European Commission FP7 framework programme) EUCISE2020 is a Security Research project of the European Seventh Framework Program; it aims at achieving the pre-operational Information Sharing between the maritime authorities of the European States. EUCISE2020 is an important milestone in the roadmap for implementation of the European CISE - Common Information Sharing Environment. CISE supports the development of the Blue Economy of the European Union, is a key innovation of the European maritime governance, is an element of the European Digital Agenda, and, finally, is a pillar of the European Action Plan for the European Maritime Security Strategy. The European Union is strongly committed at implementing the Integrated Maritime Policy which supports improved efficiency of the Maritime Situational Awareness by the competent authorities, through networking and interoperability of maritime surveillance systems in Europe (ref. COM (2009) 538, and COM (2010) 584 relating to the implementation of a Common Information Sharing Environment (CISE)). EU CISE 2020 aims to be a significant step forward along the accomplishment of the European roadmap for CISE (Common Information Sharing Environment); the project attains the widest possible experimental environment of innovative and collaborative processes between European maritime institutions. EU CISE 2020 takes as reference a broad spectrum of factors in the field of European Integrated Maritime Surveillance, arising from the European legal framework, as well as from studies, pilot and R&D projects accomplished in the last three years. The overall objective of EUCISE2020 is to progress towards establishing a forward operating vision of CISE more stable and innovative, functionally and geographically larger, and more shared by different communities of European public and private stakeholders; CISE will support further cross-border and cross-sector operational cooperation between public authorities -including EU Agencies- in the execution of the defined maritime functionalities, with a focus on information sharing across sea-basins. The EU CISE2020 Consortium includes: 39 full partners organisations from 14 European Member States or EEA States (Bulgaria, Cyprus, Germany, Denmark, Greece, Spain, Finland, France, Italy, Norway, Portugal, Romania, Sweden, UK), including operational stakeholders, R&D institutions and technical bodies involved in all EU relevant maritime basins and in all CISE sectorial communities. 25 associated / observer partners organisation including international organisations and maritime authorities from other European MS.

Boosting innovative Entrepreneurial Ecosystem in Regions for young entrepreneurswww.interregeurope.eu/ieer1.4.2016 0:00:0031.3.2020 0:00:00International RDI3 RunningComposed of EER (European Entrepreneurial Region) and non-EER regions, the project Boost EER addresses the challenges regional authorities face in optimizing structural funds to support young entrepreneurs in the regions due to 1) Lack of awareness or entrepreneurial competence both for local and regional authorities (LRAs) and the higher education institution (HEIs); 2) Fragmented actions of actors either operating in silos or duplication of efforts, 3) Uneven development and resources between outlying and centre areas of a region and 4) Limited funding provision or at risk of ineffective management of funds. Boost EER aims to define paths and solution for partner regions enabling HEIs and the other Quadruple Helix actors to be a part of thriving entrepreneurship ecosystem supporting young entrepreneurship through improving 11 ESIF programmes in 10 diverse regions from FI, DK, UK, IE, ES, IT, DE, FR, PL and RO. In the 2 years of interregional learning and 2 years of monitoring, Boost EER taps the pool of EER expertise and transfers the best practices through peer-learning, guided workshops and bottom-up approach empowering the LRAs, HEIs, business and young entrepreneurs to take ownership of the development and implementation of 10 action plans. Boost EER also constantly involves non-partner regions (in particular less-developed regions) to validate the transferability of the best practices for European upscale. Each endorsed action plan is envisaged to improve the addressed ESIFs through: project pipelines for best practise importing (entrepreneurial university and startup support), adaption of multi- level governance, multi-funding or/and a evaluation tool which ultimately lead to growth and more jobs. Specific objective: 1. To bench learn how HEIs transform themselves into Entrepreneurial universities to integrate education, RDI and entrepreneurship to foster young entrepreneurship and, 2. how regions can seize the active role entrepreneurial university contributes to the entrepreneurial discovery of the region.

Currently, there are no systematic descriptions or common policies related to how highly educated immigrants could move to various career routes. The project aims to strengthen the accessibility of education and business world for those immigrants and support their inclusion and participation in Finnish society. The undertaking seeks solutions to smoothen up their career routes and, through that, to minimise education overlaps, to provide employment quickly and to orientate them towards further studies. Also full utilisation of competences is aimed at by creating coherent and fully accessible national practices. The main objective of the project is to produce, within the context of technological universities, a framework for the estimation and contextualisation of highly educated immigrants, a framework that can be made use of in the evaluation processes for competences and module planning in further and continuing training. In addition to paying attention to professional and language skills, the framework also takes into account the development of cultural and professional identity in a foreign work culture, both in the case of further and continuing training. The resulting "Competence scale for the field of health care" will be a model with operational principles for identification and recognition of competences possessed by highly educated people with immigrant background. The project evaluates how the ways implemented in educational organisations to identify competences correspond to the recommendations and principles created for the identification of competence. In addition, evaluation of equivalence among health sector degrees and field-specific competence mapping are developed in the project by collaboratively creating field-specific principles for credit transfer of competences otherwise acquired. These principles include the necessary field-specific, module-based further education recommendations. The project also builds training programs on evaluation practices for those who teach people with immigrant background. As its second outcome, the project will produce "Competence paths" for the fields of technology, health care and business as well as for professional teacher education, which also functions as a model that can be extensively utilised in other fields of education and operational environments (e.g., Open UAS, continuing education, preparatory studies). The model creates the general principles for identification and possible recognition of competence and, related to that, it creates module combinations taking into account individual needs. The focus is on professional studies as further studies, on supplementary studies for occupational language, on work culture and field-specific networking as well as building professional identity and self-empowerment from the viewpoint of employment or further studies. The third outcome and objective of the project is a uniform language education model and a continuum of language learning. Language education is initially developed in the region of Southern and Western Finland. In the future, the objective of the language education model is to secure a possibility for immigrants to also develop their language skills elsewhere regardless of changes in regional or national language education policy. In any case, there is a need for language education, and the objective of the language education model is in any case to provide an opportunity for long-term development of language skills. The project aims at developing flexible education models easily adapting to possible changes which universities of CARD Opetuksen kehittäminenESR 2014-2020533
Meta-clusters for attracting the international tourism markethttp://caitoproject.eu/1.7.2016 0:00:0031.3.2020 0:00:00International RDI3 RunningIn the Central Baltic region, tourist visits from neighbouring countries have declined in some areas. To face this challenge, clusters with skills, knowledge and the understanding required to enter new markets are needed. Working with the Japanese market will create more opportunities to increase tourism in the region. Currently, potential exists in rural tourism for the development of clusters, products and services especially in terms of product quality and demand. This can be extended to the Japanese market in the tourism sector since Japanese tourists have expressed interest in visiting rural areas to experience the wide range of natural and cultural heritage products to be found in our countryside. The aim of the project is shaping a rural tourism high capacity meta-cluster to access the Japanese market, enable its structure and operations, and present a significant rural tourism product for Japanese travellers. The idea is to build Japanese market expertise in order to create focused marketing and products suited to the interests and expectations of Japanese tourists to attract them in greater numbers to visit the Central Baltic region. The project is partly funded by the Central Baltic program (ERDF). The total budget of the project is 1 413 734 euro, and total funding from the Central Baltic program is 1 141 858 euro.

Talsinki Metropolitan Incubationhttp://cbtalsinki.eu1.10.2015 0:00:0030.9.2018 0:00:00International RDI3 RunningThe co-operation addresses four business verticals: ICT, healthtech, cleantech and creative industries. Each partner will focus on said verticals to accommodate regional development strategies. A shared process for incubating and accelerating new companies will be developed around a common model os start-up development phases. The parties will map existing programs over these phases, compare and benchmark specific services provided by the partners and assess the needs of new knowledge-intensive companies for new services and benefits of cross-border collaboration. The assessment will be followed by establishing relevant procedures to develop cross-border teams. Service design methods and rapid experimentation will be utilized in working together and in introducing new services. The goal is to serve new entrepreneurs significantly better than through individual offerings. The integrated process will lead to a) a better validation of start-up ideas and teams through sharing of dealflow and information, b) availability of more specific expertise through sharing of advisors, mentors and coaches, c) stronger teams through matchmaking of people, ideas and seed investors across the region. The need to develop a joint incubation model and process is driven by growing global competition and limited local resources. THe co-operation focuses on a compact area of Tallinn-Helsinki where the cost of joint operations and doing cross-border business is minimal. www.cbtalsinki.eu Taina Kilpinen Project Manager taina.kilpinen@laurea.fi +358 40 555 4627 CARD Yrittäjyyden edistäminenCentral Baltic 2014-2020549

Gaming for Achieving Peacehttps://gap-project.eu/1.9.2016 0:00:0028.2.2019 0:00:00International RDI3 RunningEU Personnel in Conflict Prevention and Peace Building missions come from diverse organizations and nations, yet must coordinate together in the temporary network or umbrella organization that comprises each CPPB mission. Coordination is challenging strategically and operationally. Even if the structures to coordinate together are in place, diversity in organizations (militaries, police forces, civil organizations), gender and culture (national, ethnicity, religion) make understanding of diverse personnel, and effective communication and cooperation in contexts of diversity difficult yet vital in order to achieve CPPB missions' goals. Current training puts few resources into training personnel in these critical soft skills. Gaming for Peace (GAP) provides an efficient and effective means of developing and delivering a curriculum in those skills. Deriving a base curriculum from CPPB relevant soft skills and end user identified training gaps in this area, GAP designs a multiple player online role playing game which simulates scenarios from CPPB missions. The GAP project launches an iterative process of curriculum development and refinement through end users (military, police and civilian personnel) evaluating the game and embedded base curriculum by playing the game and in doing so, bringing their own experiences to the game, thus further developing the curriculum of CPPB relevant soft skills. The game can be accessed anywhere via the Internet and there is no limit on the number of personnel who can be trained. The game can be customized at low cost by different stakeholders. The GAP consortium is multidisciplinary with expertise in the social sciences, computer science, end users (including militaries and police), and SMEs in game design, curriculum development and skill standardization and harmonization, and has support from stakeholders including the ESDC, UN bodies and NATOProject Manager/Laurea, kirsi.hyttinen@laurea.fi CARD Asiakaslähtöinen turvallisuusH2020 Societal Challenges649
