Kick off of INTESA project
INTESA Consortium involves the Ministries of Transport of Italy and Croatia, the Italian Coast Guard General Command and the core Adriatic ports (in addition to the ports of Venice and Chioggia, there are the port systems of Trieste, Monfalcone, Ravenna, Ancona, Bari , Brindisi, and the Croatian ports of Rijeka, Ploce, Split) with the aim of improving cross-border cooperation in the port area.
The project has a total duration of 30 months (it will end on 30 June 2021) and foresees joint actions aimed at increasing the nautical accessibility and safety of the Adriatic Sea main ports thanks to the adoption of IT systems for the exchange of real time data and aids to navigation, aiming to improve the efficiency of maritime transport, navigation safety and the harmonization of procedures in intra-Adriatic traffic.
North Adriatic Sea Port Authority, with a budget of € 440,000, via innovative IT technologies and virtual navigation aids, will optimize the inbound/outbound nautical traffic management of teh port of Venice, thus improving nautical accessibility and operations.
Friday 29 March the Technical Seminar "Information technologies for security: a joint Italian and Croatian perspective for the Adriatic Sea" will follow, involving top level policiy makers and stakeholders of the maritime sector (IALA, EMSA) and the discussion will address how ICT solutions standards can improve data exchange, safety of navigation and best port performances.
In a specific session of the Seminar initiatives under implementation at the ports of Venice and Chioggia will be presented as a best case testbed.
