Unlocking the potential of multi-use of space in the offshore economy
MARIBE is conducting a study of the current Blue Growth environment with a particular focuss on multi-use of space and multi-use platforms in order to determine opportunities for synergistic collaboration. Here below follows a short description of the different work packages under MARIBE and as the project progresses deliverables per work packages will be made available.
WP 1 – Project Coordination
WP 2 – Knowledge Transfer and Dissemination
WP 3 – Standardization of Methodology
WP 4 – Socio-economic Trends and EU Policy in Offshore Economy
- A socio-economic review of four Blue Growth sectors contextualised by a review of four Blue Economy sectors to determined the current status of these sectors, their lifecycle and possible future trends.
- A review of policy, regulation, planning and support regimes in each of the four sea basins under study (Atlantic, Caribbean, Baltic & North Sea and Mediterranean) and the possible future trends identifying commonalities in policy, regulation, planning and support across the basins.
- Capturing & combining the socio-economic information relevant to the sectors involved in each of the combination projects.
D 4.2 Series socio-economic reviews of Blue Growth sectors contextualised by blue economy sectors review:
WP 5 – Technical and Non-technical Challenges, Regional and Sectoral
- Assess & review four key FP 7 projects related to multi-use/multi-platform: Marina Platform, H2Ocean, Tropos and Mermaid.
- Produce a comprehensive report that outlines each project, its structure, partners involved, main objectives, deliverables summary and provides a description of the concepts developed.
- Identify the technical and non-technical barriers relevant to the combination projects being developed in WP 9 & 10 analysed and reporting the limitations by basin, sector and combination.
WP 6 – Investment Community, Consultation and Commitment
- Conducting a literature review to gain familiarity with the Blue Growth investment community and to create a database of blue growth investors and investments.
- Engage with investors to explore the current state of affairs regarding Blue Growth investments and gain a better understanding of the barriers and opportunities relevant to investors to learn how best to engage investors in the MARIBE project.
D6.4 Investment community consultation and commitment This deliverable presents results collected through (1) compiling a database of investors and subsequent analysis, (2) literature review, (3) a survey set out among identified investors and (4) in-depth interviews with a selected number of stakeholders.
WP 7 – Business Model Mapping and Assessment
- Identify the most promising existing business models by conducted case studies of 30 existing models.
- Designing a case study format for describing business models of individual companies. This format will describes the company, provides the big picture of their strategic choices throughout the years, and its vision. The case study describes the context in which the company is operating and its shows how its current business model creates, delivers, and captures value (visualized on the Business Model Canvas).
- Mapping the socio-economic context in which the companies operate using the so-called context map. The context map is a visual tool that enables (management) teams to quickly create a rich picture of the business context in which their company (and thus their business model) is operating. The map creates deep insight in contextual factors that are important for growing the business. It enables teams to identify threats and opportunities and ultimately the response to those.
- Creating case study reports for each model, providing an assessment of the business model in terms of its design (the so-called business models mechanics), its Investment Readiness Level (IRL), and its socio-environmental impact. A section on the business model mechanics, its strengths and weaknesses, and social and environmental costs and benefits will be included.
- Create a map for all BG and BE sectors by synthesising the learnings from the case studies. The map provides an insight in sectoral and cross-sectoral links, particularly partnerships that companies have with one another as well as with other companies not included in the mapping.
- Creating ‘proposed business models’ which are generic in nature and can be used by new companies as a basis for their own models.
Creating detailed business model analysis reports, including ideas on innovating from specific business model building blocks. This is the Epicenter innovation technique frequently used by business model innovators.
D7.2 Case studies for specific business models Part A
D7.3 MAPPING OF ALL BUSINESS MODELS
D7.4 INNOVATION OF EXISTING BUSINESS MODELS PART A
D7.5 LIFE CYCLE LEARNING FROM BUSINESS MODELS
D7.6 TOOLS AND GUIDELINES FOR EVALUATION AND INNOVATING BUSINESS MODELS
WP 8 – Strategic plans for 12 project concepts
- Identifying 24 combinations with growth potential. From these 24 combinations selecting 12 projects with an interested in exploring opportunities for cross-sectoral combinations.
- Further develop projects with input from the WP 4-7 deliverables.
