The EMPIRIC project (Enhancing Multimodal Platforms, Inland Waterways and Railways Integration in Central Europe) has been developed to support the start up and improvement of multimodal connections from/to North Adriatic Ports with Central Europe hinterland.
Main objectives of EMPIRIC include:
- improvement of technology and policy instruments to allow transport operators and logistic services providers to develop more effective and sustainable transport solutions (including specific ICT tools);
- support the activation of economically viable multimodal services linking, in particular, Nord Adriatic Ports (NAPA) with the Central European regions and integrating individual modes to greener logistic chains;
- Preparation of initial conditions for infrastructural investments to new alternative multimodal platforms and services in the programme area and evaluation of economic, social and environmental impacts of such investments.
