EU-funded Horizon 2021 research project, Sustainability EducationAl programme for greeNER fuels and enerGY on ports (SEANERGY). SEANERGY is an initiative financed by the European Union (EU), within the framework of the research and innovation programme 

World Maritime University (WMU), in addition to the 11 European partners, will cooperate to achieve the project goal of developing a Master Plan to help achieve zero-emission ports by 2050. This will provide solutions to port energy transition challenges. The master plan will be an aggregator of information and is intended that guidelines are developed which will allow all the port-industry’s stakeholders, regardless of their geographical context, to assess, plan and execute the necessary activities towards transforming ports into clean energy hubs.

WMU will lead Work Package 2, “Understanding the current EU ports’ situation and stakeholders,” which involves identification and analysis of the needs, barriers and know-how of stakeholders who are involved in the port energy transition. Additionally, WMU will contribute to the other three main stages of the project by supporting activities which will include a survey, an analysis, educational programmes and workshops.
