The BlueInvest Project Pipeline is, according to its website, a platform which consists "of innovative and scalable business ventures from traditional and emerging sectors of the maritime economy." The platform is accessible among the BlueInvest Club of Investors and will be promoted at the upcoming 2021 European Maritime Days event held on 20-21 May. Selected by BlueInvest, eligible companies for inclusion should have a KRE of a TRL of 6 or more and have a high investment readiness. The platform also offers BlueInvest Readiness Assistance, an exclusive one-to-one coaching programme to a maximum of 25 companies with high potential for investment readiness.

The deadline to upload relevant results is midnight 19th April.
For any questions, please contact us at EC-HORIZON-RESULTS-PLATFORM@ec.europa.eu.
A Key Exploitable Result (KER) is an identified main interesting result (as defined above) which has been selected and prioritised due to its high potential to be “exploited” – meaning to make use and derive benefits- downstream the value chain of a product, process or solution, or act as an important input to policy, further research or education.
In order for you to select and prioritise your results, we would recommend that you use the following criteria:
a) degree of innovation, b) exploitability and c) impact.
