Communication from the Commission: First progress report on the implementation of the NAIADES Action Programme for the promotion of inland waterway transport, COM(2007) 770 final

Funded under: FP7-TRANSPORT

Abstract

In January 2006 the Commission published a Communication on the Promotion of Inland Waterway Transport setting out the Action Programme "NAIADES".
The Programme, covering 2006 to 2013, focuses on five strategic areas: improving market conditions, modernising the fleet, developing the human capital, strengthening the image and amending the infrastructure.
The programme is addressed to all stakeholders of inland waterway transport, the EU and its institutions, and the Member States. The European Parliament and the Council of Ministers have welcomed the initiative and endorsed the programme; the industry has confirmed its broad consent.
This Communication is the first progress report on the status of implementation and achievements. It also gives an outline on financial support for the Action Programme and reports on developments with regard to the organisational structure.
