SPEED Project – The World Port Sustainability Awards

The SPEED (Smart Ports Entrepreneurial Ecosystem Development) project team is very honoured to have been shortlisted for the 2021 IAPH Sustainability Awards by The World Ports Sustainability Program (https://sustainableworldports.org/iaph-sustainability-awards-2021) in the category ‘Resilient Digital Infrastructure’. IAPH (The International Association of Ports and Harbours) (https://www.iaphworldports.org/) was formed in 1955 and over the last sixty years has grown into a global alliance representing over 180 members ports and 140 port related businesses in 90 countries.

The SPEED open innovation portal maintained by BU (https://speed.wazoku.com/ccc/speedportal), the commitment to collective ecosystem growth, the strong international consortium, and the focus on value creation for the smart port community have probably helped to being nominated and shortlisted. This is a big success achieved by the SPEED project partners’ hard work and creative efforts. SPEED is part of the European Interreg 2 Seas program and aims to empower a cross-border community of port authorities, port stakeholders, ambitious data science and IoT entrepreneurs and knowledge centres to become the world leading innovation hub for smart port application development.

We would like to thank you for your support.
