Implementation of the Danube STREAM project started on 01st January 2017 with duration of 30 months.

As an environmentally-friendly and safe transport mode, inland waterway transport (IWT) is an important enabler for economic growth and competitiveness in the Danube Region. Transnational harmonized smart traffic infrastructure information for an entire Danube transport corridor is an important prerequisite in order to be capable of satisfying user needs.

The objective of the project is to establish and maintain an efficient and environmentally friendly transportation network of the Danube and its navigable tributaries, by further developing effective waterway infrastructure management. In addition to consolidating common standards and tools, the project’s results and outputs include user oriented information services.

The main thematic areas within the project refer to harmonization of quality information about navigation and navigational conditions, coordinated management of waterways through waterway management tools and cooperation in the field of waterway measures implementation respecting the principle of environmental protection, as well as strategic cooperation. During the project lifetime, different pilot tests will be conducted, improving the infrastructure of waterways and their maintenance, relying on innovative technology.
