News > NAIADES II and DINA - towards quality inland waterway transport

The European Commission has published on 20 September 2018 a mid-term progress report on the EU inland waterway action programme - also known as NAIADES II - and a report on digital inland navigation (DINA). The NAIADES II progress report highlights that most of the foreseen actions regarding regulations, policy and financing have been achieved and it further identifies on-going actions until 2020 for further implementation of the NAIADES II programme.

The report on Digital Inland Navigation follows up on the 'Digital Inland Waterway Area' study from October 2017. The report helps framing the discussion on the digitalisation of the inland waterways transport sector in order to seek synergies and improving interoperability in logistics and freight transport across Europe. It describes existing initiatives and tools in the area in an integrated way, including the findings of the previous study and ongoing Commission initiatives.
