In collaboration with the AquaBioTech Group we worked on a specific project, EU initiative, for the decarbonization of the port and shipping industry and transition to the circular economy. We contributed to the port system mapping by analysing the socio-economic context, by identifying intervention points in the port status-quo for future improvement and compiled a set of best practices for adaptation measures to climate change challenges and sustainable port development.
