NAIADES II for a Better Inland Waterway Transport


On 10 September, the European Commission has adopted the NAIADES II package Towards quality inland waterway transport’, moving a step forward along the path to improving European inland navigation. With a Communication and a series of complementary legislative proposals, the Naiades II package lays down policy action for the period 2014-2020, looking at infrastructure, innovation, market, environmental impact and skilled workers as central elements for waterways improvement.
In support of Naiades II, the inland navigation sector and the Commission have recently created PLATINA, a common platform gathering 23 partners from nine different countries and aiming at the implementation of Naiades II goals.
