This report provides an overview of relevant European Research and Innovation (R&I) projects dealing with waterborne transport decarbonisation, based on the European Commission’s Transport Research and Innovation Monitoring and Information System (TRIMIS). The report analyses various measures put in place until today to foster waterborne transport decarbonisation: technology trends, operational, coordination and support measures. The report concludes by providing indications for further research and policy actions.
