Improving the sustainability of maritime transport in the Adriatic Sea

Online event
October 19, 2021 – h.10.00 am – 01.00 pm CEST

How can the environmental sustainability of maritime transport in the Adriatic region be improved?
This is one of the goals of the Priority Axis 4 of the Italy-Croatia Cooperation Programme (i.e., INTERREG IT-HR), financed by the European Regional Development Fund.
In a compact online event, three research projects of the IT-HR Programme will dialogue to address this question. Representatives from the E-CHAIN (enhanced connectivity and harmonization of data for the Adriatic intermodal network), GUTTA (saving fuel and emissions from maritime transport in the Adriatic region), and METRO (maritime environment-friendly transport systems) will describe the outcomes of the project activities and the experiences learned during the projects. Furthermore, thanks to the participation of speakers from regulatory agencies, policymaking, industry, etc, insights about the present and the future of maritime transport regarding sustainability actions will be provided.
