European IWT Platform’s Webinar

Inland Waterway Transport’s
Greening Challenges and Stage V – Perfect match or not?

European IWT Platform is well aware of the greening challenges and other uncertainties facing inland navigation sector. Discussion on future energy sources is no longer a novelty, we know there’s no holy grail. However, questions remain – what are the more pragmatic challenges that the sector and its entrepreneurs are facing today and what kind of decisions are to be made right now for the benefit of the future?

Therefore, we are organizing our first Innovation & Greening Webinar on the sector’s greening challenges and outlook for nearby future decision making.
