“NextGEN Connect” aims to present scenario-based problem statements derived from NextGEN stakeholders and data collected from the NextGEN database. Through launching a “Call for Proposals” that will be open to industry, academia and global research centres, NextGEN Connect will bring different stakeholders together to offer solutions for inclusive maritime decarbonisation.
Globally, there are many decarbonisation projects underway. The IMO-Singapore NextGEN (where GEN stands for “Green and Efficient Navigation”) virtual ecosystem lists 154 projects, across 13 fuel types and involving over 500 stakeholders around the world . These projects take a wide variety of forms and cover different focus areas, from ships to fuel R&D to capacity building to infrastructure development.
