  • Transitional Waters

    We have written a small project focusing on fossil fuel use in the port of Amsterdam, which is being undertaken by our students. This enables us to get a grip on the local dimensions of the CLIFF project. We have also conducted field research to determine the extent of fossil fuel dependence in the port.
