Carinafour has received EU-funding to take part in an ambitious project focused on increasing eco-efficiency in the Baltic Sea region maritime sector through digital solutions. ECOPRODIGI* project kick-starts a unique collaboration between research organisations and the industry end-users to create and pilot digital solutions increasing eco-efficiency throughout the vessel life cycle. Ultimately, ECOPRODIGI supports Baltic Sea region in becoming a front-runner in maritime industry digitalisation and clean shipping.
ECOPRODIGI focuses in creating and piloting digital solutions for vessel performance monitoring, cargo stowage optimization as well as shipyard process optimization. In addition to the digital solutions ECOPRODIGI will produce, for example, a roadmap for maritime sector digitalization, and policy recommendations to authorities. Also, the project will design and pilot training programmes for shipyard ecosystems and organize public events for deepening the networks within the maritime sector.
ECOPRODIGI project has received more than €3 million from the Interreg Baltic Sea Region Programme. With partners’ own contributions the overall budget of the project is €4.2 million. The project is led by the University of Turku, Finland, and the duration of the project is three years. Project’s results, news and open events are communicated at www.ecoprodigi.eu and on Twitter, @ECOPRODIGI_BSR.
