DocksTheFuture aims at defining the vision for the ports of the future in 2030, covering all specific issues that could define this concept including among others, dredging, emission reduction, energy transition, electrification, smart grids, port-city interface and the use of renewable energy management.

DocksTheFuture, beneficiary by the European Commission of a contribution of about 1,2 million Euro, 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.

Along with the long-term experience of its professionals in European projects, Circle will lead a working group consisting of academic partners (Institut für Seeverkehrswirtschaft und Logistik – ISL in Bremen, Germany and University of Genoa, Italy) and of consulting companies Magellan (Portugal) and PortExpertise (Belgium). The proposal will address a preliminary research on the Port of Future concept, the definition of several Port of the Future topics to be addressed and their related targets in 2030 and a preliminary list of projects that could be potentially clustered together with the RIA (“Research and Innovation Actions”) retained proposals.

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”.
