The Baltic Sea Forum is currently involved with a project proposal aimed at strengthening inland and coastal shipping in the Baltic Sea region. This project, titled EMMA, was submitted by the Port of Hamburg Marketing as part of the INTERREG Baltic Sea Region Programme. The prospective EMMA consortium consists of 21 partners based in Germany, Finland, Lithuania, Poland and Sweden. Thematically, EMMA focuses on the specifics of particular markets in the inland waterway sector as well as different stages of development with regard to the integration of inland waterway vessels as an efficient economic alternative in international supply chains. The verdict of the project proposal will be decided at the end of November.
