The main objective of the project BALTPORTS-IT is the dissemination of research knowledge gained during the execution of the EC projects AMCAI, DAMAC-HP, SPHERE and regional projects in the area of IT-solutions and simulation for harbour managing and control. In this project a Baltic sub-regional Competence Centre will be established in Riga (Latvia). It will be formed to provide a communication platform for connecting scientists offering innovative IT solutions with engineers of companies working on maritime applications.
The Competence Centre will support Port authorities, agencies, forwarders, trucking companies, stevedoring, insurance companies, railway and warehousing companies working with a distributed system of Free Port areas. Recommendations for the application of innovative solutions leading to new markets opportunities are to develop in technical Workshops. New ways for the training of specialists in maritime information systems design and port logistics by using Web-based technologies will become possible.
