SSPA - member of Waterborne Technology Platform

Waterborne has been set up as an industry-oriented technology platform to establish a continuous dialogue between all waterborne stakeholders and setting the agenda for maritime research in Europe. The waterborne sector has developed an ambitious vision for the sectors transport (ships and shipping), blue growth, and ports and infrastructure.

For Waterborne to reach its goals, it is necessary to engage all relevant stakeholders of the European maritime industry, such as classification societies, manufacturers, research institutes, shipyards, shipowners, or universities, as well as the European Institutions and Member States. This approach should ensure that, whilst national policies will vary according to particular challenges, effective mechanisms are developed to enable adequate research coordination and cooperation between the relevant stakeholders at EU/EEA level.
