Three aims for NOAH FOUNDATION of SCIENTIFIC COOPERATION

1 : Attract Public & Private donations dedicated to fund R&D for a regenerative Blue Growth

2 : Funding & hosting elected innovative Start-Ups & companies, one supporting another, within our NOAH’s Arks

3 : Creating an international network of R&D Arks to leave a ReGenerative lasting legacy for our Oceans

NOAH intends to contribute to our oceans’ protection & regeneration while supporting R&D and innovative business growth for the maritime sector as a whole.
.

Oceans represent more than 70% of the earth’s surface and play an important role in the global climate system, but only 10% of the maritime ecosystem has been discovered; it’s a fact that our Solar System is better known than our own seas. Ignoring both the very real problems and the very real potential solutions that exist, precious little investment remains devoted to the Blue Economy.

Why? Because there is a real lack of international structuring, legislation, controls, best practices promotion & R&D.

For too long the focus has been on immediate profits, often at the expense of neglecting our environment, ecosystem and regeneration.
For example; over fishing, over crowded pisciculture farms, uncontrolled ship breaking yards, a lack of rules to reduce pollution, the impact of the maritime transportation, are major issues which if left unchecked will damage our world forever.

Governments are now becoming more aware and concerned about the critical importance of protecting our marine environment, and are also starting to understand that adopting a ReGenerative Blue Growth approach would benefit both the global economy & our environment.

NOAH was conceived to lead the way in an effective and collaborative solution to start the Revolution of Blue Growth & ReGeneration.

Blue Economy, Blue Growth,
Blue ReGeneration

  • The Blue Economy and Regeneration is the sustainable use of ocean resources for economic growth, improved livelihoods and jobs, and ocean ecosystem health. The Blue economy encompasses many activities including the costal economy, representing the 2nd most important economic sector worldwide.
  • Blue Growth is the long term strategy to support sustainable growth in the marine and maritime sectors as a whole. Seas and oceans are drivers for the worldwide economy and have great potential for innovation and growth.

NOAH FOUNDATION OF SCIENTIFIC COOPERATION

NETWORK OF CO-WORKING PLATFORMS

STRUCTURING
An international network of Maritime R&D Platforms

The NOAH Foundation of Scientific Cooperation (FSC) has its first objective, to fund an international network of NOAH’s Arks, designated R&D Platforms – Laboratories – Corporate Incubators for innovative projects.

The FSC funds and keeps the ownership of all co-working areas and the technologies installed within each NOAH’s Ark. The remining areas of the Arks are owned by the Ambassadors.

This FSC would be a unique open source collaborative deployment of international R&D platforms, one supporting another.

Such a deployment of Arks would be an effective way to structure the Blue R&D to put innovation at the forefront of a sustainable and regenerative Blue Growth.

NETWORK OF CO-WORKING PLATFORMS

Attract public & private donations

FSC to Fund Blue R&D

NOAH Foundation for Scientific Cooperation has French legal status and is co-founded by a Public Scientific University.

This is a well adapted financial structure helping to attract public & de-taxed private donations to fund Blue R&D supporting the NOAH Blue Fund focusing on private equity capital.

COLLABORATIVE WORKING ECOSYSTEM

FOUNDATION TO FUND & HOST INNOVATIVE START-UPS

The NOAH FSC will not only co-own the R&D Arks, but also participate in co-funding Innovative Start-ups and projects in partnership with NOAH Blue Fund.

The FCS and NOAH Blue Fund work in harmony to define and nurture Innovative projects demonstrating high potential for both environmental impact and yield.

It is expected that a selection of funded Start-ups or projects, will also benefit from synergies between themselves, to increase regeneration and Blue Growth, unlocking solutions and new market opportunities.

Funded companies are invited to be freely hosted within the R&D Arks platforms, corporate incubators and co-working offices.

COLLABORATIVE WORKING ECOSYSTEM

RESOLVING LOCAL MARITIME PROBLEMATICS

IMPACT INVESTMENTS

NOAH FSC aims to improve local maritime livelihoods and ecosystems.

By charter, the funded and hosted companies by NOAH, are also engaged to collaborate to find not-for-profit solutions to resolve a local maritime issue.

This engagement is in the public interest and helps local notoriety of NOAH’s Arks, the Foundation and the hosted companies.

Also, it allows hosted companies to pool their collective skills and activities, encouraging pragmatic business synergies between them.

NOAH FOUNDATION for SCIENTIFIC COOPERATION is a structure for:

R&D to unlock solutions, Funding Innovative projects, Promoting best practices, Resolving local maritime issues and start the Revolution of the Blue Growth & ReGeneration
