The Danube Ports Days have become a must-attend event on the agenda of the IWT community in the Danube Region and well beyond, providing a transnational platform to discuss, by bringing together decision-makers, experts and the IWT sector, key aspects related to port development issues.
This year’s edition was organised in cooperation with the MultiRELOAD and SYNERGETICS Horizon Europe projects and was focusing on the pilot project study on Enabling Sustainable Management and Development of inland ports which was contracted by DG MOVE. The general objectives of this study were to identify and evaluate the factors affecting the sustainable development of inland ports, as well as to propose solutions for the implementation of green objectives for inland ports paired with their economic development.
The hybrid workshop serves in creating an environment where EU stakeholders in business, national administrations, port authorities, social partners and sector organisations could discover new tools and solutions for the implementation of green objectives, share experiences and good practices, address common challenges in their transition, and provide relevant updates. It provides a platform of cooperation between public and private entities with a dedicated interest and involvement in port development and terminal logistics and hence stimulates the know-how sharing and feedback collection.
Karin Vogisam from Ennshafen presented the SEANERGY Project during a conference focusing on energy transition and greening in ports in Europe reaching 105 stakeholders in Vienna and 50 stakeholders online.
Karin shared her insights on how Port of Enns is contributing to these vital initiatives: “At Port of Enns, there is a strong commitment to not only providing state-of-the-art framework conditions for clients but also championing sustainability in every aspect of the port’s operations.”
