Objective

STEERER will coordinate the establishment and communication of a Strategic Research and Innovation Agenda and an Implementation Plan towards zero-emission waterborne transport, in cooperation with all key stakeholders needed to facilitate the transformation to clean waterborne transport. The project will develop and execute an effective communication strategy, to not only raise awareness to the key stakeholders of the waterborne transport sector as such, but by raising awareness of citizens regarding the strategic importance of the sector and the commitment of the sector to mitigate climate change and contribute to a healthy living environment. The consortium will function as a Secretariat, where the broader expertise is involved in the Scientific Committee and the Green Shipping Expert Group to be established by the project.

STEERER is geared towards reaching its expected impacts during the project lifetime. ISTEERER will focus on:
- Jointly setting emission targets towards 2050 (including targets for 2025 and 2030);
- Developing a Strategic Research and Innovation Agenda to be able to reach these targets in time;
- Developing an Implementation Plan to reach the targets in due course, while staying competitive and offering a valid business case;
- Developing and implementing a communication campaign, aimed at broader awareness of the waterborne transport sector and its commitment towards zero-emission transport.

STEERER will focus on massive transition of both the existing fleet as well as the new-built fleet towards zero-emission performance in 2050, while respecting the need for sound business cases for ship-owners and operators. STEERER will concentrate on a selection of the most promising solutions per segment of the waterborne transport sector and tackle barriers to their further development and deployment of innovation.
