official launch of the capitalisation strategy gave projects the opportunity to input
the preparation of 3 new transnational programmes (Danube, ADRION, and
Balkan Mediterranean). The conclusions from these seminars were collated by
SEE JTS team and delivered to programming bodies and external experts
designing the programmes. Danube and ADRION both used the input (and
referenced it!) in their cooperation programme texts.
CO-WANDA (waste management in inland transport) developed an online waste
collection booking services for ship operators on the Danube. This application was
adapted by DaHar (Danube harbor development) to meet the needs of sea ship operators
in the Black Sea and was tested in the ports of Tulcea and Galaţi in Romania. This
happened thanks to cross-fertilisation between the Greener Transport Systems and
Multimodal Accessibility to Primary Networks poles.
Exchanges within the thematic pole of Greener Transport Systems resulted in new
tutorials in the IneS Danube learning platform developed by HINT (harmonized inland
navigation training) related to waste management in inland transportation (influence from
Thanks to synergies built with ZEROWASTE (MED project) RE-SEEties (resource
efficient urban communities) took up a waste management tool for local authorities and 14
incorporated it in its own toolkit for local waste and energy management practices. Their
cooperation was facilitated through the Low Carbon Communities thematic pole.
Within the pole of Employment and Demographic Change SEEMIG (managing
migration in transnational context) and MMWD (migration-related strategic policy
planning) were the most active contributors. While SEEMIG put emphasis on data
collection and harmonisation, MMWD offered policy tools for managing migration in the
future. The outputs of both projects turned out to be complementary. In particular,
migration data collected by SEEMIG was used in benchmarking the data feeding
MMWD’s policy planning. SEEMIG took on board recommendations on what sets of
data are needed for policy making.
ORIENTGATE (integrating climate change into policy and territorial planning)
exchanged in-depth with SEERISK colleagues (joint disaster management in Danube
macro region). As a result disaster risk reduction was added to the project’s climate
change adaptation decision-making support tools.
