Transcript of EMPIRIC

A representative and reliable partnership
Problems to be addressed
the CE area is crossed by relevant freight traffic flows, originated and directed in-and outside it;
this traffic is mainly supported by road infrastructures due to the lack of adequate multimodal infrastructures and competitive services;
this generates negative impacts in terms of transport sustainability and environmental effects;
lack of coordination of the transnational and local strategies for the valorization of multimodal transport solutions (especially those based on sea and inland waterways port infrastructures).
Evaluating of the capacity of current goods flows to generate the demand for the activation of new intermodal service
Assessing the economic, social and environmental impacts of new intermodal logistic platforms and services
Analysing of incentives for multimodality and definition of a users common position on related policies
Promoting business fostering meeting opportunities

Strengthening the condition for safety improvement;
Transferring of knowledge related to e-infrastructures, business models and ICT tools for IWW transport;
Analysing the possible development of new railway services
Enhancing Multimodal Platforms, Inland waterways and Railways services Integration in Central Europe

The project
EMPIRIC is co-financed by the European Regional Development Fund through the CENTRAL EUROPE Programme

The EMPIRIC project has been developed to support the start up and improvement of multimodal connections from/to North Adriatic Ports with Central Europe hinterland

EMPIRIC has been conceived as an initiative to integrate and capitalize results of previous international projects and local initiatives for the promotion of multimodal transport solutions and increased interconnectivity of individual transport modes.
