DocksTheFuture will define the Port of the Future, meant as a near future (2030) which should face challenges related to simplification and digitalization of processes, dredging, emission reduction, energy transition, electrification, smart grids, port-city interface and the use of renewable energy management.
In particular, DocksTheFuture will:
- refine and tune 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 RIA retained proposals
- identify appropriate KPIs (“Key Performance Indicators”) and relevant monitoring and evaluation of results of actions leading to the “Port of the Future Road Map for 2030” that will include 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”.
DocksTheFuture will be heavily promoted at Transport Research Arena 2020 (https://traconference.eu/), on 27-30 of April. DocksTheFuture will be Presented by Prof.Nicola Sacco , from the University of Genova, on the DSS tool. DocksTheFuture will stand in the ALICE- ETP stand.
The description of our session is as per below:
Despite being essential for the European economy, influencing modal decisions and the whole transport chain, Ports create externalities that must be mitigated. Several challenges arise in the quest for the modernisation of Ports, among which, the need for emission reduction, sustainability, port-city interface and digitalisation of processes. This workshop, organised by ETP ALICE, four Horizon 2020 funded projects (DocksTheFuture, COREALIS, PortForward & Pixel) and an INTERREG project (ResQU2), will focus on bringing together different perspectives, stemming from the several tools and technologies developed within the scope of the projects, which will greatly contribute towards the Port(s) of the Future vision.
