Ongoing Research Projects
The GREEN DANUBE consortium consisting of 10 highly experienced Project Partners from most of Danube riparian countries and 6 Associated Strategic Partners, international organizations, river commission and national ministries, aims to strengthen environmentally friendly, safe and balanced transport systems by adoption of a three level approach with the following targets:
Today, there is still a lack of transparency and knowledge on how to integrate green Danube Navigation into sustainable transport solutions. Increased institutional and organisational capacity will help equip public service providers with a critical mass of information and support to understand (=mind shift) and use (=modal shift) Danube transport and help them to jointly respond to common challenges.
The INTERREG – Project MariGreen ‚Maritime innovations in green technologies’ will develop innovations for greener and low-emission shipping. By new solutions the contribution of shipping is to reduce climate change and the ship will be further developed as an environmentally friendly transport.
