ELMAR KICK-OFF MEETING

Start Date: 6th November, 2017
End Date: 8th November, 2017
Description: With the Kick-Off Meeting, the project ELMAR - Electromobility on the Water - with the Business Development Corporation of Vorpommern as the lead partner - started the implementation. From 6.11-08.11.2017 the participating project partners from Lithuania, Poland and Germany met in Greifswald to discuss the distribution of tasks for the next 3 years. A highlight will be the development and construction of 3 pilot boats in Lithuania and Poland. The genesis will be accompanied by open boatbuilding workshops, where interested boatbuilders can participate. As early as 2018, there will be a study trip to Berlin and southern Germany, as well as a conference in Lithuania, including excursions to Lithuanian boatbuilders. An online portal is being developed as an integral part of the public relations work on electromobility. Among other things, this will include a B2B platform, where manufacturers and suppliers introduce themselves with their technologies and products. In addition to the content work, there was of course also time for getting to know each other. In the process, the visit to the HanseYachts boatyard, under the expert guidance of Karl Dehler, has left a particularly lasting impression on the international participants.
