The integration of inland waterways into the economy, NAIADES

Thursday 7 April 2011 from 10:00 to 17:00

Szent Adalbert Conference Centre
2500 Esztergom, Szent István tér 10.

The High Level conference in the field of inland navigation is organised by the Hungarian Presidency of the European Union with the support of the European Commission to discuss:

  • Logistics and markets
  • Infrastructure development
  • Innovation and fleet modernisation
  • Human resource development in inland waterway transport.

A fully integrated inland waterway transport (IWT) system is crucial to further develop the internal market and sustain the environment. Its reliability and environmentally friendly nature make IWT a cost-efficient alternative to other modes of transport for goods. This conference will evolve around the mid-term progress report on the implementation of the NAIADES Action Programme for the promotion of IWT and provide key conclusions regarding its future.
