The objective of AUXNAVALIA is to improve the competitiveness and innovativeness of the industry of ancillary services of the naval sector, since it is an essential link in the maritime economy. It concentrates on a niche sector, the naval ancillary industry, with great potential for the future of the area.

SSA has been working with a consortium that consists of government bodies, trade associations as well as business and academic research groups from Spain, Portugal and the UK, with a total EU funding of €1.6 Million

SSA’s role within Auxnavalia is to look at developing the opportunities for ancillary industries connected with the shipbuilding and shiprepair industry.  This is being achieved through investigating new financial instruments, training, workshops and looking at international markets.
