PROJECT SUMMARY

Systems Innovation Approach (SIA) addresses the growing complexity, interdependencies and interconnectedness of modern societies and economies, focusing on the functions of the cross-sectoral system as a whole and on the variety of actors. The Climate Innovation Window (CIW) is the EU reference innovations marketplace for climate adaptation technologies. ARSINOE shapes the pathways to resilience by bringing together SIA and CIW, to build an ecosystem for climate change adaptation solutions. Within the ARSINOE ecosystem, pathways to solutions are cocreated and co-designed by stakeholders, who can then select either existing CIW technologies, or technologies by new providers (or a combination) to form an innovation package.

PROJECT AIMS

ARSINOE applies a three-tier, approach:

(a) using SIA it integrates multi-faceted technological, digital, business, governance and environmental aspects with social innovation for the development of adaptation pathways to climate change for specific regions;

(b) it links with CIW to form innovation packages by matching innovators with end-users/regions;

(c) it fosters the ecosystem sustainability and growth with cross-fertilization and replication across regions and scales, at European level and beyond, using specific business models, exploitation and outreach actions.

The ARSINOE approach is showcased in 9 widely varied demonstrators, as a proof-of-concept with regards to its applicability, replicability, potential and efficacy

PPA SA ROLE

ARSINOE will examine seaports as a dynamic element at the land-sea interface and provide a holistic vulnerability assessment based on indicators development incorporating various dimensions of a seaport, namely (i) environment, (ii) operations, (iii) energy, (iv) core infrastructure, (v) socioeconomic and (vi) safety. PPA SA, as a key Mediterranean Port, will be one of the three participating ports which will participate in the implementation of the relevant ARSINOE case studies.
