The Platform for the implementation of a future inland navigation action programme PLATINA3 has officially kicked-off. This project aims to improve impact and broadening stakeholder engagement in support of transport research and innovation under the EU Horizon 2020 programme. For a period of 30 months the project partners provide targeted coordination and support activities to promote Inland Waterways Transport (IWT) in Europe.
“PLATINA3 brings experts and stakeholders together in Europe to build the bridge towards future research, innovation and implementation needs within the European inland waterway sector” says project coordinator Martin Quispel (senior expert, EICB). “A key objective is providing the knowledge base for the implementation of the EU Green Deal in view of further development of the European Commissions’ inland waterway transport action programme NAIADES III for the years 2021-2027.”
