MEMO project promoted the sustainable growth of marine and coastal resources in the Mediterranean area, by integrating the environmental management with the maritime safety technologies (AIS and VTS), for the improvement of the maritime safety in the Mediterranean. In particular, MEMO developed a transnational initiative - the Mediterranean Electronic Marine Highway (MEMH) Observatory focused on mitigating maritime risks, improving maritime safety and promoting sustainable territorial development of marine and coastal resources.
A multi-sectorial approach has been pursued through the coordination of relevant actors in the field of maritime safety, such as Public Entities, Port Authorities, shipping industry and NGOs, each of them bringing distinct experience and knowledge for the realization of the project.
Venice Port Authority, in particular, developed a pilot project oriented to define a methodology for the formation of the convoys in order to rationalise the procedures of ship entering and exiting the port of Venice and, therefore, to improve the safety in ship traffic and the environmental performances of port and lagoon area.
Project duration: April 2009 – March 2011
