Project Summary

The project PORTS aims at strengthening the Apulian sea links with Montenegrin and Albanian coasts, in order to support socio-economic growth of the two main coastal area cross border systems. Joint actions will be encouraged to develop new sustainable solutions for maritime transport and sustainable mobility networks in order to improve internal links of tourist transport and pleasure cruises. Integrated transport (passenger and freight) will also be strengthened across Ionian and Adriatic Seas, in order to boost sustainable development and full inclusion of areas characterized by complex accessibility.
