As the project unfolds, all public reports and deliverables will be made available in this page. STEERER’s main results will be:

Green Shipping Expert Group

The Green Shipping Expert Group will consist of national and European relevant initiatives as well as of a number of sector frontrunners combined with the organisations needed to get the broader sector involved. This group will follow the goals of reaching joint commitment on the emission targets in 2025, 2030 and 2050, developing a joint agenda building upon the current state-of-play leading to prioritisation of areas with the most potential per segment of the waterborne transport sector.

STEERER Agenda (also known as the Strategic Research & Innovation Agenda) and Implementation Plan

An interconnected effort between the consortium partners, the Scientific Committee and the Green Shipping Expert Group will lead to the establishment of the STEERER Agenda and its subsequent Implementation Plan, which will focus on the following parameters:

  • State-of-play of decarbonisation of waterborne transport;
  • Scenarios with quantified targets for 2025, 2030 and 2050;
  • Areas of intervention and related actions – implementation plan;
  • Public Policy instruments and interventions and other appropriate mechanisms, incentives and business models to increase the take-up and deployment from R&I activities.

European Commitment for zero-emission waterborne transport

The key role of the Green Shipping Expert Group in the formulation of the STEERER consultation process and the STEERER Agenda requires commitment to the Implementation Plan for zero- emission waterborne transport. At the end of the project, possibly during a side-event of the final conference, members of the group will be asked to show their commitment to the Implementation Plan, which will ensure a) continuity of their commitment beyond the project’s end and b) the fulfilment of a wide array of actions therein.

Tailor-made Communication Strategy for the Wider Society

The project will create a targeted campaign for the wider society, with a very clear campaign goal/theory of change: to raise awareness, among the wider society, about the importance of improving environmental performance and moving towards the goal of zero-emission waterborne transport.
