Napa Studies Final Event Rijeka, 15th December 2015

The final event of the project “TEN-T Napa Studies”, co-financed by the European Union under the TEN-T Programme took place in Rijeka, on December 15th 2015. The project, which will end in December 2015, started its activities in July 2013, as the prosecution of a previous project, ITS Adriatic Multiport Gateway. The project was developed by the Association of the North Adriatic ports (NAPA) and involves partners from Italy, Slovenia and Croatia. The overall goal of the action is to contribute to the integration of the maritime links into the European intermodal logistics chain by improving hinterland connection (rail and inland navigation) and maritime access of the North Adriatic ports. The event was hosted by Rijeka Port Authority, coordinator of the project, at the presence of representatives of the Croatian Authorities. Welcoming addresses were held by Mr. Vlado Mezak, Executive Director of the Rijeka Port Authority, Mr. sc. Vojko Obersnel, Mayor of the City of Rijeka, Mrs. Marina Medari?, Deputy President Primorje of Gorski Kotar county and Mr. Zdenko Anteši?, Ministry of Maritime Affairs, Transport and Infrastructure of the Republic of Croatia. After the institutional speeches, the project partners presented to the audience the results of their respective activities. These include advanced studies to prepare future investments in North Adriatic Ports and Motorways of the Sea, to promote sea-rail freight intermodal efficient solutions, to foster sea-river co-modal services, through the integration of the ports of Venice and Chioggia into the Po river system, and to promote investments in ICT applications in order to improve the efficiency of the short sea shipping and its interconnection with other transport modes. The event was also attended by local media, who had the chance to be informed about the results and benefits of the “NAPA Studies” Project.
