PortForward – Digital and Sustainable Ports of the Future

Employing ICT solutions, adopting green technologies and combining different modes of transport – measures of digitalization for more efficiency, cost reduction, and a sustainable port of the future.

PortForward Provides a Solution!

The PortForward project, led by Fraunhofer IFF, is part of the Horizon2020 "Port of the Future" research and innovation funding program of the European Commission.

The objective is to build a competitive and sustainable economy.

The PortForward consortium consists of 13 partners, including the ports of Magdeburg, Balearic Islands, Vigo, Livorno, and Naples. The project, funded with a budget of almost five million euros, started on July 1, 2018 and is due to end on December 31, 2021.

At the respective ports, digital possibilities are evaluated and researched in use cases. The overall objective of the project is to advance digitalization in small to medium-sized ports.
