Clean shipping projects synthesising their know-how
Clean Shipping Project Platform, CSHIPP, brings together projects and organizations focused on enhancing clean shipping in the Baltic Sea region. The objective of CSHIPP is to increase the impact of and connect the dots between the several projects working for clean shipping: as the involved projects look at the topic from different angles, CSHIPP synthesises the projects’ results to give a holistic outlook in a concise and easily comprehensible format.
Environmental performance and business potential go hand-in-hand
CSHIPP activities revolve around two key themes: (1) the environmental effects of shipping in the BSR and (2) the business potential of clean shipping in the BSR. By discussing these themes both separately and simultaneously CSHIPP underlines that environmentally friendly shipping and profitable business are not exclusionary but, in fact, support one another. CSHIPP targets its activities and increases dialogue between three groups of actors in the field of clean shipping: research organisations, businesses/industry and policy makers.
Cross-sectoral dialogue for increased capacity of maritime actors
The Baltic Sea region is a frontrunner in clean shipping. The gap between research, business and policy making however hinders further and faster development of the field. By carefully targeting the CSHIPP outputs to the three key target groups, and by bringing them into a dialogue with each other in events and workshops, CSHIPP increases the capacity of a wide range of maritime actors. By showcasing the results of several projects working with these themes, new ideas and synergies can appear. CSHIPP is also a strong voice for the valuable work done in projects which would not be possible without EU funding.
Additionally 13 associated organisations including EUSBSR Policy Areas ‘Ship’ and ‘Transport’.
