The Danube and its navigable tributaries offer significant free capacity for freight and passengers flows. A prospering waterborne transport sector contributes to a sustainable transport system and regional growth. Besides better fairway conditions, a more modern, energy-efficient fleet, better management of the transport system through comprehensive infrastructure planning and investment solutions are required. The investment needs refer to port infra and superstructure, multimodal connections to port hinterlands.
The project will focus on addressing main regional challenges in infrastructure governance and planning highlighting key actions needed to support Danube transport, port infrastructure planning. It builds on the results of DAPhNE project on port infrastructure development and Danube Ports Network cooperation.
DIONYSUS results will feed into the elaboration of transport corridor development policies by means of gap analysis reports and recommendations. It will provide a framework to identify shortcomings in rail & road access infrastructure of the Danube ports and consolidate investment needs based on Market Analyses. Matching port planning with transport infrastructure and Regional Economic Development Plans will deliver recommendations for their adaptations in line with sector priorities. Targeted and niche-specific case studies for Container Liner Services and Agricultural Products will be developed. Also, an Infrastructure Master Plan for the River Cruise Industry will be elaborated.
Essential outputs will consist of Port Development Plans and Operational and Business models to support quality, sustainable development, and investment decisions. All project’s outputs will ensure alignment with specific EU Transport, TEN-T and Cohesion Policy objectives for the period 2014 - 2020 and beyond, including the next Multiannual Financial Framework (2021 - 2027), making DIONYSUS to a key instrument to contribute the EUSDR implementation.
