THE CONFERENCE

Welcome to the official website of the “Ports, Maritime Transport & Insularity” International Conference. The conference is organized by the Aegean Energy & Environment Agency (AEGEA) and the Network of Sustainable Greek Islands DAFNI and will be held in Piraeus, Greece on 19 & 20 April 2018.

The overall objective is to highlight the vital role of ports and shipping in shaping a development strategy in the European and Mediterranean regions, exploiting the comparative advantages of the regions and improving the competitiveness of economic actors in the context of sustainable development. At the same time, the island's particular challenges regarding the design, management and operation of its port infrastructures in relation to sea connections (strengthening the connection between the islands and the mainland) will also be presented. This approach is part of the European Commission's 'smart islands' strategy, which is part of the strategy for reducing greenhouse gas emissions. In addition, the conference coincides with the call for proposals for the Ports of the Future of the EU (Horizon 2020).
