Save the Date! MoVeIT! final event at EIWN Conference

On Thursday 11 September, MoVeIT! will present the findings of a three year research project on cost-effective modernisation of the inland waterway fleet. This final event will be organised in combination with the European Inland Waterway Navigation (EIWN) conference in Budapest. NEWADA duo will also be represented at the Conference by Project Manager Barbara Kéri who will speak about Transnational Cooperation for the Danube Navigation.

MoVeIT!: Options for cost-effective modernisation of the European IWT fleet

Within MoVeIT! (Modernising Vessels for Inland Waterway Transport) 23 partners from 9 European countries are involved in performing research to the cost-effective modernisation of the European inland waterway fleet. MoVeIT! is a collaborative research project within the European Union’s 7th Framework Programme. The research performed is focussed on improvements that can meet the challenges the IWT fleet is confronted with, like an over-aging fleet, climate change and stronger environmental and safety objectives. Research focusses on several aspects of the vessel and the use of it, such as: the ship structure, design, the engine and alternative fuel, new services and the efficient use of a vessel. In close cooperation with vessel owners, the elaborated solutions were analysed on their economic feasibility performance. Demonstrators are realised to share the results with the public.

Registration to the MoVeIT! final event on Thursday September 11th in the afternoon is free of charge. If you wish to attend please send a registration e-mail to
