PIONEERS aims to demonstrate the applicability and feasibility of green innovative solutions for ports through several demonstrators, acting as a lighthouse for EU ports. The demonstrators have been created through a collaborative design process involving key stakeholders, with the aim of making the innovation transferable to other ports after the project’s completion.
Scroll down and get to know more about each demonstrator and its impact on the value chain of the ports of the future.
Welcome to the ports of the future!
These challenges are aligned with the European Green Deal’s main objective to make Europe climate neutral by 2050.
The Port of Antwerp operates the biggest port area in the world and is pioneering in the efforts towards a climate neutral port. For this reason, PIONEERS will build on the commitment of the Port of Antwerp to scale-up the current state-of-the-art and to demonstrate applicability and feasibility through several demonstrations, acting as a lighthouse for EU ports. The Port of Barcelona, Constanta and Venlo, on the other hand, represent the ideal mix of size, location, operation models and area of influence to test these demonstrations, during the project lifecycle.
