Supair – Cross-dissemination At H2020 PIXEL Project Meeting

Supair – Cross-dissemination at H2020 PIXEL project meeting

On November 7, 2019, SUPAIR project team of Thessaloniki Port Authority, represented by Eva Vafaki, presented the SUPAIR project at the plenary meeting of Horizon 2020 project PIXEL “Port IoT for Environmental Leverage”. which was held in Thessaloniki, Greece from 5-7 of November 2019. In particular, the proposed interventions that will be included in the Action Plan for a sustainable low carbon port of Thessaloniki were
presented. The event was the opportunity for the two projects to discuss how to cross fertilise each other with results and good practises. There were 25 participants in the event, all of them representatives of PIXEL project partners who are from academia, businesses and ports. Ports are hubs connecting different types of transport systems at global and regional level. However, transshipment operations and passengers’ mobility have significant impact on the environment, especially on air quality, water and noise pollution as well as CO2 emissions. For this reason,  ports  can act as drivers for the implementation of more efficient and greener transport policies. In particular, ports can increase their sustainability by following a methodology that helps them in detecting their environmental impact and identify ways to reduce their carbon and ecological footprint. SUPAIR project responds to such challenge by supporting port authorities in the implementation of low-carbon and multimodal transport and mobility solutions within a macro-regional context. The transnational dimension is ensured by the partnership, which pulls together 7 ports of the Adriatic-Ionian region (namely Trieste, Venice, Koper, Bar, Durres, Thessaloniki and Piraeus) and research as well as public institutions in charge of transport. SUPAIR will establish a network of ADRION low-carbon ports committed to exchange on good practices regarding soft and hard environment-friendly solutions for a greener, safer and more efficient transport system.
