Call for proposals of the Baltic Sea Clean Maritime (BSCM) Award launched!

Baltic Sea Forum e.V. (BSF) in cooperation with the BSR InnoShip project and Institute of Shipping Economics and Logistics (ISL) has launched the call for proposals for the "Baltic Sea Clean Maritime (BSCM) Award". The award has been created to support innovative and environmentally friendly approaches and ideas for the Baltic Sea maritime sector and to provide a platform for transparency, knowledge exchange and implementation measures.

Accordingly, the award aims to promote approaches and ideas that meet the following criteria:

    - reduce and prevent emissions caused by shipping and port operations in the  Baltic Sea Region,
    - reconcile the different interests and needs within the Baltic maritime sector in order to foster a more environmentally friendly maritime sector,
    - coordinate efforts to make the Baltic Sea a model area for clean and competitive shipping in Europe,
    - contributing to a coherent maritime spatial planning covering the different activities in the maritime sector.

The award is presented for the first time now in 2013 and in the future will be given out annually. The award has a symbolic character, i.e. it is a non-financial award.

The deadline for this year's proposals is 30 June 2013 and the award will be officially handed out to the winners during the BSR InnoShip final seminar in Brussels on 10 September 2013.
