Goals and strategy
Our vision is that the participants in AMK should become preferred suppliers of arctic maritime technologies and operations on Norwegian and international arctic markets. Our main goal is to establish AMK as the leading maritime environment within the fields of knowledge and industry in Norway related to a challenging arctic climate, by means of developing and implementing equipment, design and processes which ensure efficient, safe and environmentally positive maritime operations. An important goal is thus partly related to developing cluster qualities and partly to implementing knowledge-, innovation-, and competence synergies towards and between the participants. In order to realize the specific goals shown above, it has been decided to go for five main strategic issues, where the first two are related to developing internal and external networks, while the next three are related to specific development projects, being market development and internationalization, knowledge and innovation, as well as competence and recruitment. A set of activities will be carried out within these five strategic fields.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]
What is in it for the participants?
A total of 22 planned activities are to be carried out within the project. These are activities depending on co-operation throughout the value chain. It is of vital importance that several companies look to R&D and to other major players within the arctic segment for know-how which normally is beyond any individual company’s ability or capacity. Through these common venues, this will be a melting pot for development and knowledge, as well as a basis for new development projects. Another most important factor, which also develops within such a joint project, is to get to know your fellow partners, develop confidence and enthusiasm – building a cluster.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]
How to become a partner?
AMK is looking for partners possessing relevant branch competence and experience. Any amendment in the partnership is decided on by the Board by simple majority. The partners are obliged to ensure acceptance within own company through Board and employees. It is mandatory that employees in partner companies are enabled to participate in relevant professional activities. It is also mandatory that senior management staff participate in planned networking- and innovation activities. The individual partner company should facilitate a most active participation.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
