The main activities of EIBIP and the regional Innovation Centres are concerned with monitoring, facilitating, accelerating and initiating project deployments.

The three Innovation Centres are meant to be innovation transfer centres facilitating the innovation and assisting the inland waterway industry in raising greening projects. The activities executed on this level may differ from region to region, ensuring an optimal fit with regional dynamics.

Besides the regional focus, the Innovation Centres will further develop and deploy tools on EU level (such as the Econaut CO2 calculator, Greening Tool and Total Cost of Ownership-tool) as well as create commitments from industry for further co-creation.
