A new conference will address research, innovation and competitiveness in the European waterborne sector.

The conference aims to bring together members of European Parliament, the European Commission Services, Member States, the waterborne sector and other related stakeholders, said the WATERBORNE technology platform.

Organised by the broader waterborne community in Brussels, the event on 29 November will also look at ways in which the sector can work towards smart and zero-emission operations, added Sea Europe.

The strategic objectives of the WATERBORNE technology platform are to establish a continuous dialogue between all stakeholders in the waterborne transport sector and in other waterborne-related sectors on R&D; contribute to the widest possible consensus regarding R&D and to focusing of efforts and resources; and develop a common medium- and long-term R&D Vision and a Strategic Research Agenda (SRA).

Objectives also include contributing to the appropriate mobilisation and allocation of the necessary financial resources (private/regional/national/EU sources); and contributing to the social expectations regarding clean, competitive and safe waterborne transport as well as regarding other waterborne-related activities, including education and training.
