This Thematic Research Summary (TRS) on Water Transport provides an overview of research projects financed under the EU Sixth and Seventh Framework Programmes (FP6 and FP7), the TEN-T programme including Motorways of the Seas, and highlights some projects from other EU financed programmes, such as the MED and Marco Polo Programmes. The research is directed to supporting decision making in improving water transport throughout the EU, contributing to making transport more efficient and competitive, safer, more user-friendly, and reducing the environmental impact.
