What will maritime transportation be like in 2050?
Rome, 14 March


Maritime transport can have different kinds of impacts: on the atmosphere with greenhouse gas emissions and on the sea with polluting emissions (tanks washing, fuel spills, etc …), on the quality life in port cities’ (traffic, pollutants emission in proximity of the houses, etc. …); the mobility of people, and the development of tourism. Maritime transport is a cross-cutting topic between maritime pollution, air pollution, planning of ports and connected infrastructures, citizens’ quality life (in the cities with ports, tourists, etc…) involving the RRI dimensions and the different societal challenges.
For this reason, the hot topic is relevant for MARINA and in Italy and in the Lazio region at the local level.

You want to use your creative mind to develop solutions that best serve individual citizens, your local community and the European society at large. You want to make sure that your needs and expectations are taken into account when local, national and European decisions and innovations are being developed.

The workshop is organised according to the Science Café methodology by  CNR – Consiglio Nazionale delle Ricerche.

It will involve citizens, scientists, business representatives, entrepreneurs, local authorities and policymakers in an open dialogue. Together, you will define a common vision and a roadmap of solutions and actions to face this challenge. The results, together with the outcomes of the other MARINA workshops in Europe, will be freely accessible on the MARINA Web Knowledge Sharing Platform, used for identifying lessons learned and best practices and disseminated at European policy conferences.
