Ziele für die Region
Westen Pomerania has indicated a list of local intelligent specializations. They include Maritime and logistic activities (including maritime technologies, i.e. a sector strongly rooted in the region, but one which must respond to contemporary challenges), Machinery and metal industries (the number of entities operating in this area is currently growing in the region, with expanding portfolios of industrial parts; considerable experience in the shipbuilding area acts as an additional asset), Tourism and health (the use of natural resources and cultural achievements). All of those specializations have a strong correlation to CAMPFIRE project mission and activities.
Warum machen wir bei Campfire mit
We believe that future maritime transportation will need to overcome IMO emission regulations and emmision free shipping is one of the global trends already being brought to reality. Our regions combined, with the innovative and ambitious use of their intellectual potential, have a potential to become leaders in the field of future maritime technologies and zero emission shipping.
