Official Project Poster

Waterways and waterfronts are vital for the economy, ecology, and quality of life in the North Sea region. However, their changing and increasing shared use causes a decrease in safety, accessibility, and liveability. Connected River addresses those issues by, mobilizing multi-stakeholder ecosystems, conducting user centric, agile innovation, and accelerating the uptake of digital/smart solutions.

Based on the lessons learned out of 4 work packages in 6 local pilot areas, the project delivers a playbook on the Flow Forward approach and a road map on how to integrate this into innovation strategies.

To move the Connected River project forward, a strong and experienced partnership has been established, comprising of host partners, that will be responsible for hosting and conducting the pilot projects, approach partners that provide expertise, methodologies and a strong knowledge network, and solution partners that will contribute business and subject knowledge to accelerate the project findings within the North Sea region.
