TransGovernance
The TransGovernance project is an international project spanning 8 countries in the Baltic region. 

The TransGovernance project is an international project spanning 8 countries in the Baltic region. 22 partners participate to coordinate the development of national transport policies, with the goal of creating a harmonised transnational transport system.
The network organisation TINV (under MDCE) is the participating partner in the project and is focused on analysing how governmental control systems and tools can contribute to promoting the use of intermodal transport systems (short sea shipping in particular) amongst distributors.
DKMK's participation in the TransGovernance project is two-fold


•    Facilitate an in-depth analysis of Danish distributors' use of short-sea shipping routes, including which barriers currently exist.
•    Development of a campaign aimed at Danish distributors to promote the use of short sea shipping. This effort will be a collaboration with TINV, Short Sea Promotion Danmark, and Nærskibsfarts-netværket.
DKMK's involvement in the TransGovernance project is part of WP6.2 (Identification and development of innovation projects) in DKMK.
 


The Funen Maritime Cluster
It is the intention of The Funen Maritime Cluster is to facilitate contacts and establish networks between maritime companies, educational institutions, and maritime organizations located at Funen. 

It is the intention of The Funen Maritime Cluster is to facilitate contacts and establish networks between maritime companies, educational institutions, and maritime organizations located at Funen. The Funen Maritime Cluster is currently part of development groups that emphasize Offshore Service, Maritime Support & Consulting, Construction & Materials Selection, and Shipbuilding & Propulsion.


The purpose of the development groups is to create a forum where ideas, business opportunities, and new initiatives can materialize and be set into motion for the benefit of the participating companies. As of July 2013 the cluster has 55 members.  However, a mapping of Funen has shown a growth potential of up to a possible total of 300 companies in the region.
The Funen Maritime Cluster has a budget of DKK 5 million and is planned to run until January 1st 2015. The funds from Vækstforum Syddanmark and EU’s Social fund will be used in five different areas, by using two-day courses as a central element. The courses topics are:
•    B2B cooperation between the companies in the micro-cluster
•    Cooperation between companies and educational institutions
•    Knowledge-sharing on opportunities to increase growth
•    Expand collaboration between companies, from competition to co-creation of value
•    Developing the internationalization potential in the cluster

NÖKS
Prestudy – Short sea shipping in Øresund-Kattegat-Skagerrak (NÖKS) – models and systems to move freight transport from road to sea.

Prestudy – Short sea shipping in Øresund-Kattegat-Skagerrak (NÖKS) – models and systems to move freight transport from road to sea.

The purpose of the project is to create a platform for collaboration and knowledge sharing between industry, authorities and knowledge institutions in the ØKS region. The project aims to create holistic, sustainable, and efficient transportation solutions and sustainable maritime growth and development. Land transport will face congestion issues in the future due to capacity limitations in parts of the road network. Ship transport can provide capacity increases, but currently face emmission and transit-time issues. The project aims to deliver data and models which can facilitate a common intermodal transport infrastructure in Kattegat-Skagerrak. 

The goal is to move the transportation of freight and passengers from road to sea to reduce the harmful emissions from transportation.
