On the initiative of the Ministry of Economy and Innovation and the Innovation Agency, InnoHub Lithuania has been officially opened in Silicon Valley (USA), which will help Lithuanian innovative companies and developers of advanced technologies to establish and develop contacts with partners in the USA, as well as help Lithuanian exporters of high-tech products and services to establish a position in the strategically important US market. InnoHub Lithuania joins Nordic Innovation House, which has been successfully operating in the US for almost a decade.

“We have fulfilled another commitment – Lithuania is finally established in Silicon Valley. InnoHub Lithuania will become an important link between Lithuanian and US start-ups and innovators, helping to establish targeted contacts and providing assistance in exporting Lithuanian high value-added products and services to the US,” says Aušrinė Armonaitė, Minister of the Economy and Innovation.

InnoHub Lithuania will provide comprehensive support to Lithuanian high-tech companies, with priority given to companies operating in the fields of information and communication technologies, laser technologies and biotechnology. InnoHub Lithuania will bring together US mentors to advise innovative Lithuanian companies – experts in business development, sales, marketing, business law and finance.

Lithuania’s innovation promotion capacity in California will be strengthened together with the team of the Consulate General of Lithuania and the Commercial Attaché in Los Angeles.

“The world’s leading market, the US, can undoubtedly open up huge opportunities for Lithuanian exports. We have a number of successful examples of cooperation between Lithuanian companies and the US that have led to their rapid growth, so it is very important that this market is accessible to an even greater number of promising high-tech companies. Based on our experience of working with companies, we have identified the main barriers and fears for developing in the US. These include differences in the legal and tax environment and business culture, challenges in finding and establishing targeted business contacts, and intense competition from companies in other countries. InnoHUB Lithuania will offer a comprehensive package of services to help Lithuanian exporters overcome these barriers,” says Romualda Stragienė, head of the Innovation Agency.

InnoHub Lithuania will join the community of the influential Nordic Innovation House in Silicon Valley. This gives Lithuania the opportunity not only to benefit from the Nordic Innovation House’s experience and connections in the US for almost a decade, but also to strengthen cooperation between Lithuania and Scandinavia – to build partnerships with Nordic companies, start-ups, research institutions and agencies promoting entrepreneurship and innovation.

Goal of the event. Not only potential investors, but also industries operating in Klaipėda are preparing for the construction of the first offshore wind energy park in Lithuania.

The “Wind of Change” (“Pokyčių vėjas“) forum is being initiated in order to more widely share knowledge about the preparation processes and to discuss the importance of this infrastructure not only for strengthening energy independence and providing new possibilities for the business, but also in the context of increasing the prosperity of the Klaipėda region. The event will take place in Klaipėda on December 7, 2022.

Context. It is expected that the offshore wind park could produce up to 2 TWh of green electricity per year. It is estimated that this 700 MW power plant park, which is expected to start operating in 2028, would cover up to a quarter of Lithuania’s electricity needs.

 

In total, at least 4 offshore wind power parks could be developed on the coast of Lithuania. The capacity and installation timing of the other parks will depend on future research and other preparatory work timing.

The construction of the first wind park in Lithuania would attract about 1 bn EUR investments and provide ~ 1,300 new jobs. This project marks a certain turning point in assuming responsibility for a cleaner and more sustainable environment for the current and future generations. This project is also very important for the growth of municipalities in the coastal region. The offshore energy stands as one of the priorities and a significant area of the blue economy direction of the Klaipėda region’s specialization. Facing the upcoming changes brought by this project the local municipalities also welcome new opportunities for residents, young talents and deeper cooperation between the public sector, business and academia.

Organisers. The forum is organized by the Lithuanian Maritime Cluster, The Association “Klaipėda Region”, Klaipėda Science and Technology Park and Klaipėda University.

Programme will be announced soon. 

Registration: https://bit.ly/3gRHFGD   Renginys nemokamas.

Venue: Klaipėda university Aula Magna Hall, H.Manto st. 90, Klaipėda, Lithuania.

1. Prototype module for data gathering to create a database of companies in the maritime sector

Challenge ownerKlaipeda ID  

To implement the strategy of the city of Klaipėda 2030, it is necessary to follow and analyze the changing indicators in the defined sectors: maritime economy, bioeconomy, advanced industrial and creative, and service economies – which all benefit from the seashore.

However, the current Classification of Economic Activities (EVRK) system is not effective in identifying companies’ activities and assigning them to specific sectors, such as marine. So, we cannot objectively evaluate benefits, progress, and challenges in these sectors.

One of the solutions steps is to initially identify companies according to their targeted activities. We are looking for a very clear AI solution where from a given list of companies through their web pages AI is searching by provided service keywords.

So basically, AI solution with web scraping. Ideally, the final company list could be integrated with Sodra’s open data, which would immediately return meaningful economic data on these sectors.

2.  An alarm system for all extreme wind sports enthusiasts and recreational boat owners

Challenge owner: KU Marine Research Institute 

Climate change and increasing anthropogenic pressure affect sandy coasts. Both processes and coastal accumulation and erosion can be unfavourable for the socio-economic activities on the seashore. Klaipeda is an example of this process. The Port of Klaipeda, with its jetties, strongly affects coastal processes. In the Port of Klaipeda jetties from 2005 till now, intense coastal erosion was observed in the direct impact zone. The shoreline moved inland by more than 50 m. At the same time, this coastal erosion created a favourable spot for windsurfing at the SE Baltic Sea coast.

The same meteorological conditions, strong (more than 20m/s) westerly winds, with the increased water level, are dangerous for the Port of Klaipeda activities and desirable for the windsurfers. Can you create an alarm system for all extreme wind sports enthusiasts and recreational boat owners to warn them about favourable wind conditions for the wind sports and dangers for the operation boats in the Port of Klaipeda aquatorium? Requirements for the alarm system: collect data on the wind gusts, water level, wave height, predominant wind, and wave direction and analyse available data to prognosis the conditions we are interested.

 

3. Reduction of carbon dioxide (CO2) emitted during the construction (transportation and installation) phase of the offshore windfarm development 

Challenge owner: Ignitis Renewables 

For transportation from the marshalling yard to the site and installation of various offshore wind farm components (WTG, foundations, offshore substation platform, etc.), vessels that are capable of consuming up to 50 tons of fuel per day are used.

 

 

By investigating the current industry practices, transportation methods, and installation processes that contribute to CO2 emissions to develop innovative and sustainable alternatives or modifications to existing practices that can significantly reduce CO2 emissions during offshore windfarm construction. Consider aspects such as logistics optimization, renewable energy use, and technology advancements.

The solution providers are asked to estimate the environmental benefits of your proposed solutions in terms of CO2 emissions reduction and calculate the potential reduction in CO2 emissions over the construction phase of offshore windfarm development.

Also, assess the feasibility of implementing your proposed solutions within the existing offshore windfarm construction industry. Consider factors like scalability, regulatory requirements, and industry acceptance.

 

4. Risk Assessment for offshore energy projects in the Baltic Sea region

Challenge ownerBlekinge Institute of Technology

Situation. Increased subsea and offshore energy asset usage may result in additional expensive operations, higher environmental impact, and risk for human resources.

Data-mining excellence. Use data mining approaches to forecast risk, costs, or best time window availabilities for an offshore project development. Find the solution based on historical data and generate a data model as a support tool to measure efficiency and cost reductions for offshore developments.

Input:

1. Cargo vessel traffic dataset (AIS dataset, resolution 10 mins )

2. Baltic Sea region on the map (Lat_min: 54.5, Lat_max: 55.4, Lon_min: 13.0Lon_max: 13.5)

5. Data mining excellence – forecasting vessel emissions 

Challenge ownerBlekinge Institute of Technology 

Ports by using data mining approaches demonstrate excellence in forecasting cargo vessel arrivals for a specific port. We are looking for a solution that designs a data-driven model as a support tool to predict CO2 emissions. The data-driven model should be integrated with external data sources:  

  • Cargo vessel unloading time 
  • Cargo vessel CO emissions in parking mode 
  • ​Cargo vessel energy consumption while unloading in Kwt/hour 

Dataset:

All registered port calls to the following countries: Sweden, Finland, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland.

 

Vessel’s type: all cargo and all tankers (> 65 meters)

Fields: Port ID, Port name, LOCODE, MMSI, IMO, Vessel name, Vessel destination, Vessel type, Time of arrival, Time of departure

6. Online environmental monitoring of water in port areas

 

Challenge owner: Oslo Metropolitan University 

 

There is a lack of solutions that allow monitoring of water quality and environmental parameters in port areas in a continuous and cost-effective manner. As a result of this data gap, it is very difficult to determine changes in the environment or to document whether certain environmental policy measures are having a real impact. This includes data such as temperature, turbidity, salinity, dissolved oxygen, pH, chlorophyll, underwater noise, images, video, and many more.

To develop a prototype of online environmental monitoring of water in port areas.
