The European waterborne transport sector is a crucial piece of the puzzle as the EU strives to become climate-neutral by 2050. Decarbonizing this sector presents a challenge, one that demands a proactive approach. There’s a need to push the boundaries of technology and embark on a new green and digital transition.
Waterborne transport is on the path to sustainability, and it’s a journey that requires the active involvement of all stakeholders. That’s why the recent Waterborne Days Conference 2023 held in Brussels, Belgium, from 26th to 27th September, was so important. The event brought together European maritime leaders, innovators, and experts to discuss the way forward and contribute to the EU’s waterborne transport Strategic Research and Innovation Agenda (SRIA).
ReNEW had several of our consortium partners attending the conference. They had the opportunity to stay informed about the latest developments in the Waterborne Transport sector and share insights about the positive impact ReNEW will have on the IWT sector.
The conference featured engaging discussions, exploring the latest developments within the waterborne transport sector and its pivotal role in shaping EU strategies. Another important topic touched upon was the challenges and opportunities presented by the green and digital transition.
The European waterborne transport sector is not just about ships; it’s about jobs, trade, and the economy. The discussions at Waterborne Days were essential in shaping the SRIA, defining European priorities for research, development, and the deployment of innovations in the sector, in line with the green and digital transformation.
