Platina 3

Platform for the implementation of a future inland navigation action programme

The EU-funded PLATINA3 project will provide for targeted coordination and support activities to promote inland waterway transport (IWT) in Europe. Starting from January 2021, the project will run for 30 months.

In this period the project will make the bridge towards future research, innovation and implementation needs within IWT in Europe.

The main objective is to provide the knowledge base for the implementation of the EU Green Deal in view of further development of the European Commissions’ IWT action programme (NAIADES) towards 2030.

The platform will be a catalyst for awareness, stakeholder engagement and uptake of outcomes from related national and European projects and initiatives. PLATINA3 will consolidate their findings, assess their impacts and gaps.

The ETF is part of the work on Job & Skills and will contribute to discussions on:

  • Standards for competence on zero or low emission propulsion systems
  • Input for refresher classes for environmentally friendly vessel operation
  • Standards for competence for on-board systems for automation
  • Input for refresher classes for operation of systems of automation
  • Integration of competence in CESNI on zero or low emission propulsion systems
  • Integration of competence in CESNI for on-board systems for automation
