New ocean multi-use project UNITED had its Kick-Off meeting!
The new Horizon 2020 project UNITED (Multi-Use offshore platforms demoNstrators for boostIng cost-effecTive and Eco-friendly proDuction in sustainable marine activities) had its Kick-Off meeting in Delft, the Netherlands on 27-29 January 2020. UNITED is gathering 27 partners from across the EU, including the SUBMARINER member, Southern Denmark University.
This innovative project will demonstrate the multi-use concept in a real environment in five locations across the EU (Belgium, the Netherlands, Germany, Denmark, and Greece). By means of pilot demonstrators the project aims to provide evidence that the development of multi-use platforms or co-location of different activities in a marine and ocean space is a viable approach (economically, socially and environmentally) for European maritime industry and local ecosystems
SUBMARINER is excited to be coordinating the stakeholder communication in this project and lead the development of the multi-use commercialisation roadmap.
UNITED has been co-funded by the European Union Horizon 2020 programme and will last three and a half years, starting January 1 2020.
