THE DEVELOPMENT OF THE
CAPTN INITIATIVE

The state of Schleswig-Holstein supports the development of the CAPTN initiative. With this support it is possible to coordinate the partners and stakeholders to significantly accelerate the main goals of the network, the establishment of the test field in the Kiel fjord (Kieler Innenförde) and the construction of the test vehicle “Wavelab”. The central activities are the implementation of information events, the sensitization of interested stakeholders, the formation and establishment of project-related working groups, the development of a network profile and the further perpetuation of the initiative in general.
The development of the CAPTN initiative is financed by Kiel University’s own resources and funds. The state of Schleswig-Holstein has been funding CAPTN since February 2020 up to and including June 2021 with ERDF funding from the European Union as an innovation-oriented network from the state’s economic program.
