DocksTheFuture will receive, from the European Commission, a contribution of about 1.2 million Euros, to define the Port of the Future, meant as a near future (2030), which should face challenges related to simplification and digitalisation of processes, dredging, emission reduction, energy transition, electrification, smart grids, port-city interface and the use of renewable energy management.
The project addresses a preliminary research on the Port of Future concept, the definition of several Port of the Future topics to be addressed and their related targets in 2030 and a preliminary list of projects that could be potentially clustered together with the RIA (“Research and Innovation Actions”) retained proposals.
In particular, DocksTheFuture:
– Refines and tunes the Port of Future concepts, the Port of the Future topics and their related targets in 2030 and the list of projects to be clustered together with the PortForward, PIXEL and Corealis projects
– Identifies appropriate KPIs (“Key Performance Indicators”) and relevant monitoring and evaluation of action results.
– Leads to the “Port of the Future Road Map for 2030” that includes a number of exploitation elements, such as tools for evaluation and transferability of Port of the Future solutions, R&D and policy recommendations, training packages and the creation of a “Port of the Future Network of Excellence”.
Magellan is the leader of Work Package 4 – Dissemination and Exploitation, with an active role in most of the project’s work packages.
