Ports, the final event on 11th December

PORTS comes to an end, with the current events that bursts into the conclusion of the project, affecting the way the final event is going to take place. A Zoom Webinar will be the opportunity to bring together the project partners and the target communities, due to the restrictions on international mobility and the need to ensure the right social distancing. A framework that becomes, however, also the opportunity to test, launch and promote Ports outputs and contributions. "Impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on Ports and Maritime Transport between Italy, Albania and Montenegro" is the title of the final event in Ports, scheduled on 11th December starting at 10:00. The event will see the participation, as special guests, of the representatives from the Port Authorities of Taranto, Durres and Kotor, who, with the project partners, will take stock of the consequences of Covid-19 on cross-border maritime transport and on the post-epidemic scenarios, also in light of the contributions offered by the project to the sector.

The participation to the Final Event is open to the public, upon registration to the webinar, available at this link
