Waterborne Declaration

In the coming years, the Waterborne community will play a critical role in helping to achieve the “Europe 2020” objective of smart, sustainable and inclusive growth.
We believe that research and innovation are essential to address the dual challenges of societal and economic progress. We declare that:

▪ We will deliver more extensive, integrated, efficient and sustainable water-borne transport systems and infrastructure
▪ We will provide increased support for the emerging offshore food, energy and minerals sectors
▪ We will reduce our impact on the environment
▪ We will play an important role in delivering a more competitive and sustain-able low carbon economy
▪ We will continue to prioritise safety and security within the Waterborne community

To address these challenges, the Waterborne community will demonstrate strong leadership, will foster a co-operative and supportive research environment and will develop clear implementation plans.
