Stage 2 – the Strasbourg sessions
October 19 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm BST
Together with its partners, the PLATINA3 team is pleased to invite you to the upcoming PLATINA3 – Strasbourg sessions on 19 October 2021 (online). This session will be hosted by the Central Commission for the Navigation of the Rhine (CCNR) with English as working language. You will be able to follow several keynote speeches by Inland Waterway Transport (IWT) specialists from the European Commission, the European Parliament and the business community. Please use the form below to register.
The PLATINA3 Strasbourg sessions will provide a unique opportunity to exchange ideas and learn more about the latest developments and upcoming challenges of IWT in Europe, following the publication of the NAIADES III action plan as well as the CCNR study on the energy transition towards a zero-emission inland navigation sector. Topics such as economic and financial barriers to modal shift, funding and financing of the energy transition of the European IWT fleet, and the accurate European fleet data to support future EU policies will be on the agenda.
The PLATINA3 Strasbourg sessions will be entirely designed as an interactive event enabling in a short time valuable and forward-looking exchanges between experts from the business sector, associations, institutions, international organisations and other key stakeholders from the IWT community on major items of common interest. To contribute to this interactive and pleasant character of the work yourself, you will be invited to have your smartphone with you to participate in live surveys and polls.
The official programme of the sessions will be announced shortly. In the meantime, you can already register for this event by filling in the form below.
Looking very much forward to meeting you all soon (virtually),
On behalf of Martin Quispel (EICB, PLATINA3 project coordinator) and Bruno Georges (secretary general of the CCNR, host).
