Cross sectoral approaches lead to smart innovation. SAIL is a quadruple helix approach, she aims at implementing low carbon hybrid sailing, (engine-sail). The SAIL partnership has 17 partners on board from civil-, economic-, scientific and governmental perspectives. For three years she developed a wide range of stepping stones helping us to introduce hybrid sailing. SAIL loves to share her findings with you. SAIL also loves to identify new stepping stones towards low carbon, hybrid sailing during the BlueWeek.


Detailed information on the project and this conference can be found at
