FRAMESPORT – FRAMEwork initiative fostering the Sustainable development of Adriatic small PORTs

FRAMESPORT is a project co-financed by Italy-Croatia CBC Programme, the financial instrument supporting the cooperation among the two European Member States territories overlooking the Adriatic Sea.

FRAMESPORT project will perform a coordinated initiative supporting an integrated and sustainable development of small ports in a strategic perspective, thus allowing them to be proactive socio-economic drivers of the development in the Adriatic coasts.

Such a strategic objective calls for a multifaceted approach, including both the adoption of concrete pilot actions as well as identification of priority themes to be promoted within the overall strategy.

Priorities will be individuated by means of a bottom-up approach, involving local and national stakeholders since the project inception phase. Partners, which have been chosen in order to guarantee a wide territorial approach, will address planning and management topics, business models implementation, enhancement of training and competence, as well as develop ICT tools and services, thus supporting an effective development of small ports in the whole IT- HR area.

Furthermore, a tailor-made ICT platform will collect and systematize relevant key data on small ports to be shared as a starting point of any further development. FRAMESPORT will build on existing knowledge and capitalize results of pilot initiatives by integrating them in a new strategic framework boosting small-scale maritime nodes performances along the Adriatic coasts.

The project will be developed over 36 months and involves the participation of 15 partners and 12 associates, both Italian and Croatian, with CORILA, the consortium for coordination of research activities concerning the Venice lagoon system as coordinator.

Logoteam d.o.o. is the partner in charge of programme communication activities and contributes in various technical Work Packages.
