The projects

Joint Industry Projects

The driving force for the ZVT collaboration platform is the commercial industry projects, the so called Joint Industry Projects (JIP). Within these industry groups different companies and organisations work together to find common, sustainable solutions relating to a defined issue.

Joint Authority Projects

The Joint Authority Projects (JAP) are also working towards the goal of a safer, more environmentally and energy efficient transport by sea. Each JAP consists of several different stakeholders from agencies and administrations that need to agree on proposed solutions and share knowledge.

Joint University Projects

The Joint University Projects (JUP) are also working towards the goal of a safer, more environmentally and energy efficient transport by sea. Each JUP consists of several different stakeholders from the academy that need to agree on proposed solutions and share knowledge.

Pilot projects

Some of our industrial projects (JIP) have come together to seek co-funding from the European Union via the TEN-T programme Motorways of the Sea.

ZVTREF

The issues that the projects (JIP/JAP/JUP) are unable to solve themselves are raised to the Zero Vision Tool reference group, ZVTREF, to ensure that common sustainable solutions can be identified.

ZVT POOL

The platform also includes ZVT POOL, stakeholders whose contributions are important in order to achieve the zero vision. ZVT POOL participants must contribute their support and/or be interdependent in achieving the goal of a more efficient waterborne transport.
