Jordan Davidson – Ireland is ready to say goodbye to plastic cutlery, plastic balloon sticks and grocery items wrapped in plastic.
A greener, more efficient rudder system, designed at the University of Strathclyde, will be demonstrated as part of a €6 million EU-funded research project. The GATERS project led by the University of Strathclyde under the Horizon 2020 Fund, will see the ‘gate rudder’ – a novel propulsion and steering system – retro-fitted to a commercial vessel as part of a trial. Unlike a traditional rudder which sits behind a ship’s propellers to steer the vessel, the U-shaped gate rudder – essentially two separate rudders – sits astride the propeller which, as a result, acts like a nozzle around the propeller and generates additional thrust.
In a globalised world, Europe is vulnerable to climate extremes and the effects of climate change. Tropical cyclones, droughts and melting ice sheets in other parts of the world directly or indirectly impact Europe. Our focus in RECEIPT is to map these connections and to build storylines showing the effect of climate change on society and the economy.
Do you know where your food is produced? How about your clothes, electronics, or car? Much of what we consume and buy comes from outside of Europe. Changes in other regions affect how Europe manages its coastal infrastructure and how European financial institutions operate global portfolios. International cooperation to address global needs and responsibilities will also be affected by climate change.
RECEIPT aims to outline Europe’s vulnerability to remote climate events. We will achieve this by looking into climate risks outside Europe and their potential consequences for key European socio-economic sectors such as:
The project will:
reveal impacts of remote climate extremes on the European economy
map ways to identify and reduce vulnerabilities
inform about future business opportunities
