The ELEVATE project aims to create a robust scientific understanding of the impact of current climate policies and identifying opportunities to mitigate GHG emissions further towards net-zero by mid-century. The consortium includes the leading global modelling teams responsible for informing the IPCC assessments, the most critical national teams in informing national policymakers worldwide (also covering high emitting, (middle) low-income countries), and world-leading social science and humanities experts regarding climate policy and system transformation. The ELEVATE project will set up a dialogue between the consortium members (actors involved in national and international climate research) and policymakers to jointly evaluate current progress and contribute to new or updated climate policies and NDCs. ELEVATE will strengthen the capacity to develop linked global and national scenarios that are updated regularly and use this to provide a comprehensive analysis of implemented policies and different routes towards the Paris climate goals.Beskrivelse

Maritime domain presents a unique opportunity to utilize the advancement in robotics technology by employing not only Unmanned Aerial System (UAS) but also Unmanned Surface Vehicle (USV) for the automation of nearby harbor processes, for instance, ship inspection and condition monitoring, ecological monitoring, transport of small-scale supplies between shore-to-ships and harbor security and surveillance to name a few. This project study aims to:
i. Identify gaps in the application and adoption of UAS/USV technologies nearby harbors by engaging with target groups within the ÖKS region, which include, maritime port authorities, businesses (e.g., technology developers, business developers and maritime port services providers), universities and research centers.
ii. Investigate needs and requirements of maritime stakeholders and users to create multi-faceted value propositions of economic growth, technological innovation, environmental sustainability, and human safety in critical operations through the application of drone technology nearby harbors.
iii. Build cross-border consortium to increase applied research and innovation focusing on the development of regional ports utilizing drone technology for offshore port services. The cross-border collaboration shall comprise of universities, research centres, companies, port authorities and relevant maritime stakeholders
