BACKGROUND

TEN ECOPORT - Transnational ENhancement of ECOPORT8 network (Project Code SEE/D/0189/2.2/X) is inspired by a great number of initiatives undertaken at EU level, aimed at improving sustainable mobility of people and freight along the sea-network. By this way, SOUTH EAST EUROPE Transnational Cooperation Programme (SEE Programme) gave a great contribution to developing cooperation among Port Authorities in Adriatic, Ionian and Black Sea areas (e.g. SEE MARINER, WATERMODE, SEETAC, ECOPORT 8, GIFT projects, etc.). More specifically, TEN ECOPORT is aimed at capitalizing ECOPORT 8 results, which tackled the problem of environmental impact affecting port areas and its surrounding areas taking into account that all the port areas examined have a high population density.

A second consideration inspiring the present project is the extensive review process of the Trans-European Transport Network (TEN-T) policy during the last years. The main innovation put forward in the new policy of Trans-European Networks (TEN) was the concept of a "core network" as part of a dual-layer planning approach. This approach, broadly supported by the stakeholders, has established the importance of the regional networks for the future TEN-T development that are set in order to enable further economic growth, economic and social cohesion. At the moment, the ports constitute the greatest opportunity for increasing the relationship among SEE countries; as a matter of fact, the ports observe an increasing trend in passenger mobility. Therefore, the enhancement of the Core Regional SEA-Network as precursor of Trans-European Networks (TEN) has led the ECOPORT 8 partnership to update its goals with this new vision.
