What is a JIP?

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. 

Each JIP consists of several different types of stakeholder that need to agree on proposed solutions, share knowledge and work towards the goal of a safer, more environmentally and energy efficient transport by sea.

All work done within the JIPs follows the structure of Vessel, Infrastructure and Finance and, where applicable, Regulation and R&D. This structure was established to ensure that relevant areas are always taken into consideration when trying to find a joint solution. 

Since collaboration and shared knowledge are vital in order to achieve the set goals, the ZVT platform is used to carry out and communicate the JIP results.
