Today there is still a lack of transparency and knowledge on how to integrate green Danube Navigation into sustainable transport solutions. Increased institutional and organisational capacity will help equip public service providers with a critical mass of information and support to understand (=mind shift) and use (=modal shift) Danube transport and help them to jointly respond to common challenges.
Besides, there is a shortage of qualified personnel on-board inland vessels and fragmented legal framework governing skills and qualifications in the Danube inland transport sector and hindering recognition of qualifications and mobility of work force.
Above challenges identified in Danube navigation explain in part the huge discrepancy between inland waterway transport on the Rhine and on the Danube (EUSDR: “Cargo volumes transported on the Danube are only between 10% and 20% of those carried on the Rhine”) and make imperative the need for a common transnational approach to increase institutional capacity of responsible authorities and administrations and level the gap between the two regions with regard to inland navigation.
Danube SKILLS consortium thus consist of a well-balanced composition of 15 organisations which cover 8 Danube countries: Romania, Austria, Bulgaria, Croatia, Hungary, Slovakia, Germany and Serbia and 7 Associated strategic partners. Click here for partners section.
Acting as a policy driver for the integration of Danube region into the overall European inland navigation legal framework, Danube SKILLS ensures the multilevel, efficient and transparent governance of the nautical education and Danube logistics, respectively and warrants the increased capacity building of the region by delivery and validation of a set of transnational management structures, processes and cooperation patterns.
