National project (RO) The main goals pursued by the complex development of the Danube-Bucharest Canal system are: connecting the capital city of Romania with the Danube river through a waterway, defending localities and farming land against floods, producing power, establishing the necessary conditions for leisure and tourism, providing favourable ecological influences and other similar elements, supplying the necessary water for irrigation, providing drinking water for the neighbouring localities and for aqua-farming.
National project (HR) The main objective of the project is the integration and modernization of the waterway infrastructure of the Sava within the Trans-European Transport Network. As an international waterway, the Sava river does not meet the navigability criteria for the European inland waterways as provided in the AGN Agreement, since it should enable safe navigation for vessels of class IV for 300 days per year. The project is planned to be conducted in the section between Puska and Preloščica.
River training and dredging works on critical sectors on the Danube River & Supervision and environmental monitoring of river training and dredging works on critical sectors on the Danube River
National project (RS) The purpose of this project is to execute river training structures and dredging works at six critical locations along the Serbian sector of the Danube between Backa Palanka and Belgrade (rkm 1287 to rkm 1195) in order to improve the navigation conditions during low water periods.
It´s Our Danube – A floating campaign to increase awareness of aligning ecological and development interests
National project (AT) The project would have contributed to the policy instrument "Apply planning principles and guidelines of sustainable waterway planning: Joint Statement / PLATINA Good Practice Manual" mentioned in the road map for Priority Area 1a of the Danube Region Strategy. The planned exhibition onboard the ship MS Negrelli would have dealt with this subject and the trainings would have focused on the application of the PLATINA Manual on Good Practices in Sustainable Waterway Planning in waterway engineering projects.
Transnational project (CH, DE, AT, RS, RO) The main objective of NEWS was to increase transport flows on inland waterways (especially container transport on the Danube) by developing a next generation European inland vessel and logistics system to make inland waterway transport more economical, more ecological, safer and time efficient: The NEWS Mark II vessel.
National project (BG) Within the project a new control GPS geodetic network was established along the Bulgarian Danube which serves as a base for carrying out geodetic and hydrographic activities with modern GPS technologies for studying the changes in the riverbed. Beside this, 9 automatic hydrometric stations and 9 meteorological stations were installed along the Bulgarian section of the river.
National project (RO) The project is designed to transform Giurgiu Free Zone Port into a "High Performance Green Port" by upgrading its key infrastructure, connecting Inland Waterway Transportation (IWT) with the road and rail networks and stimulating IWT and related intermodal transportation.
Improving navigation conditions on the Danube River from 1295.5 -1433.1 river km – Eliminating bottlenecks on the Croatian/Serbian part of Danube River
National project (HR) The common Croatian and Serbian part of Danube river stretch from 1433.1 – 1295.5 rkm is considered critical in terms of navigation conditions and dissemination of sediment and ice. Therefore, the main objective of the project is to define the present situation through monitoring (ecological, hydro-morphological, water quality,… ), propose measures which would ensure smooth and safe river navigation while preserving and protecting existing natural habitats and protected sites.
