BSR InnoShip

BSR InnoShip addressed the common challenge of the Baltic Sea countries and the key maritime stakeholders in cooperating to minimize ship-based air pollution, while aiming at optimizing competitiveness of the maritime industry. The project promoted new and innovative transnational approaches to mitigate the different needs and interests of the maritime sector and to ensure a level playing field for more sustainable and economically viable management of the Baltic Sea resources. The project provided the needed knowledge and best practices for policy- and decision-makers in the development and joint implementation of national and transnational policies, strategies and concrete measures to implement the international low emission requirements.
