VIU_TeDIS is one of the partners of the project “Promoting maritime and multimodal freight transport in the Adriatic Sea” (PROMARES) financed by the Italy-Croatia INTERREG Program.
Program priority axis: Maritime Transport.
Program specific objective:Improve the quality, safety and environmental sustainability of marine and coastal transport services and nodes by promoting multimodality in the Program area.
PROMARES aims to tackle this challenge through the development and implementation of coordinated strategies and pilot actions as to apply the concept of «port clustering», whereby ports, inland terminals and public authorities joinlty work as to develop an efficient co-modal network and streamline transport flows between ports and their hinterlands.
The clusterisation model covers both the land and the sea sides. Consequently, the specific objectives of the projects are:
a) to develop multimodal connections between major ports and logistics and multimodal nodes;
b) to enhance the efficiency of the different types of existing nodes by optimising the current capacity;
c) to support the development of short sea shipping (SSS) and MoS between the two shores of the Program Area.
The application of the most recent ICT systems will be pivotal as to maximise the project's impacts.
The project's results and pilot actions activities will be consolidated in a Cross-border Strategy as the basis for a development of a smart «blue economy», to be developed
with the involvement of the key stakeholders of the Program Area.
