Promoting Innovation in the Inland Waterways Transport Sector

The ‘Prominent’ project was approved as a Research Innovation Action under Horizon 2020 with a term of three years. An international consortium executes the following tasks under the coordination of the Dutch Training Institute STC (Rotterdam):

  • approaches to increase energy efficiency and to reduce emissions; implementation of pilot applications; development of approaches for assessing the economic and environmental profile of ships or investment measures
  • development of a certification system for monitoring and evaluation of the emission behavior of corresponding solutions
  • development of digital and simulation-based approaches for vocational training in inland navigation. This is to consider the specific profile of the boatmen profession, i.e. to take into account the high degree of mobility. These educational concepts will also seek to modernize the educational standards and to increase the attractiveness of the profession.

DST’s work particularly focuses on issues like ‘improvement of energy efficiency’ and ‘development of digital and simulation-based approaches for vocational training in inland navigation’.
