Every year, the International Association of Ports and Harbours, accepts nominations for awards in selected categories of projects supporting its World Port Sustainability Program. The nominations can come from member ports and harbours and can be on several related categories such as 'infrastructure', 'digitalization', or 'climate and energy'. This year, the SEACLEAR project was short-listed for the award in the 'Environmental care' category by a jury, with the final vote being left to the public.
The results of the final vote were announced during the Gala of the annual World Ports Conference, which was hosted by the port of Vancouver this year. SEACLEAR has been the favourite project in the 'Environmental Care' category among the public votes, and won the 2022 sustainability award in this category!
This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No. 871295.
The SEACLEAR project spans four years, running from January 1st, 2020 to December 31st, 2023.
