We invite companies seeking support for the piloting and demonstration of developed solutions for international shipping to submit a whitepaper on the technology and scope of the proposed project. These technologies or systems-level solutions should have demonstrable potential to reduce GHG emissions when deployed at scale across the maritime sector*.

* GCMD prioritises projects by taking into consideration the technology and commercial maturity or readiness of the solutions. Technologies should have a verified prototype system and be ready for a small scale commercial trial. Examples might include a prototype system/model being produced and demonstrated in a simulated environment.
