The second Know-how transfer event on the modernisation of Danube vessels will take place on 29 September 2020 (originally planned on 01 April 2020) and will be organised by the Danube Commission in Budapest.
The core objective of the event organised in the framework of the GRENDEL project in cooperation with the innovation centre INDanube is to provide a platform for knowledge-transfer and information exchange on alternative fuels and technologies which have the potential to reach "near zero-emission" performance of IWT. The event will bring together inland vessel operators from the Danube Region with technology and innovation experts and suppliers. The know-how transfer event will furthermore provide additional insights into digitalisation aspects and financing opportunities.
On the next day, on 30 September 2020, the Danube Commission will host the third GRENDEL Public Consultation which will allow to discuss with national public and private entities about the prepared GRENDEL model state aid scheme and about the regulatory framework in general.
Due to the specific context of COVID-19, the second Know-how transfer event and the third Public Consultation will finally take place as online events.
