InfoDanube aims to increase public awareness on importance of inland waterway transport sector, to provide information about the sector, to attract young people to prospective careers in this sector, to create opportunities for alternative forms of training and to provide potential customers an easy and free of charge access to information on Danube logistics services in order to foster the modal shift to inland waterway transport.
InfoDanube was inaugurated on 17 May 2011, in Galati, Romania, and is one of the results of the NELI project- Cooperation-Network for logistics and nautical education focusing on Inland Waterway Transport in the Danube corridor supported by innovative solutions and was released as a result of renovation and modernization of the School Pontoon from CERONAV- Romanian Maritime Training Centre.
The need for developing an Information and Training Centre in Romania, was significant, because the Danube crosses the longest distance on the Romanian sector, but also due to its geographical significance (linking the North Sea and the Black Sea through the Rhine-Main-Danube channel), which would certainly guarantee a large number of potentially interested people.
InfoDanube is located in the Commercial Port of Galati, pier 13/14.
