EnergyWare – Energy Efficiency in Warehousing in Maritime Supply Chains

The objective of the project EnergyWare  is the advancement of the bi-regional Science, Technology, and Innovation dialogue between the involved institutions on German and Ukrainian side: The Chair in Maritime Business and Logistics (University of Bremen), and the Institute of Energy Saving and Energy Management (National Technical University of Ukraine “Kyiv Polytechnic Institute”) together with the Odessa National Maritime University. The selected institutions intend to focus on the societal challenge of mutual national interest for the two regions, namely energy efficiency in warehousing in maritime supply chains. With regard to the thematic focus, the project encompasses arranging of capacity building activities to support the information exchange among partners (1), revealing and selection of other European partners into project consortia based on bi-lateral research networks (2), and elaboration of thematic proposal for the Horizon 2020 Energy-Call “Actual implementation of sustainable energy measures in industry and services” (3).

This project is supported by a Twinning-Grant (01.2016 – 10.2016) from the International Cooperation Network for Countries from the Eastern Partnership (IncoNet EaP) and coordinated by the German Aerospace Center (DLR). In February 2016 the kick-off meeting and the first networking workshop took place in Bremen with fruitful results in regards to the objectives of the project.
