The EU-funded PLATINA3 project will provide for targeted coordination and support activities to promote inland waterway transport (IWT) in Europe. Starting from January 2021, the project will run for 30 months.
In this period the project will make the bridge towards future research, innovation and implementation needs within IWT in Europe.
The main objective is to provide the knowledge base for the implementation of the EU Green Deal in view of further development of the European Commissions’ IWT action programme (NAIADES) towards 2030.
The platform will be a catalyst for awareness, stakeholder engagement and uptake of outcomes from related national and European projects and initiatives. PLATINA3 will consolidate their findings, assess their impacts and gaps.
Stakeholders are invited to participate actively in our series of 6 Stages, each of which will accentuate relevant topics.
The consortium partners are actively involved in international research and innovation activities in the field of IWT. They have an excellent position in networks with other organizations and projects, facilitating the analysis of the state-of-play on the one hand, and the dissemination of the results of PLATINA3 on the other hand.
