Ongoing Projects

TECHLOG project


The objective of TECHLOG is to strengthen research-industry links in the (trans)port sector by establishing a permanent cross-border EU-Med space where research organizations and (trans)port industries co-create, test and share new Technology Transfer Initiatives based on advanced simulation technologies.


The YEP MED project was born out of the need to better match the labour market skills needs and dual TVET offers in the Mediterranean port communities’ sector in order to contribute to jobs creation and facilitate productive economic growth.

Completed Projects


The Business to Motorways of the Sea (B2MoS) global project aimed to provide a suitable array of measures in order for ports to become efficient gateways for short sea shipping in order to compete on more door-to-door corridors and facilitate the development of TEN-T Motorways of the Sea network connecting Europe.

LIFE logistics

The LIFE project was brought to life with the hope of enhancing overall knowledge in the freight logistics sector and to foster the advanced methods and procedures of cooperation within the freight market.

MOS4MOS Project

The MOS4MOS project was carried out by a group of partners from Spain, Italy, Slovenia and Greece. It´s timeline was set to run from March 2011 until July 2012.

CoModalWeb 2.0

The project aimed to contribute to the development of the co-modality and the logistics collaborative across the WEB 2.0 for the promotion of the Short Sea Shipping.

GLAD Project

The GLAD project ended in 2011. It’s success could be felt by the many course participants and by the staff that worked on it. It’s timeline was set from February 2009 to March 2011

WHITE Project

The WHITE project was born out of the hope to accelerate the shifting balance between transport modes, as specified in the White Paper approved by the European Commission in April 2011.


Within the context of the TEN-T Mediterranean Corridor Global Project, this Action focused on freight transport connecting Lyon and Madrid (CLYMA) to enable a coordinated implementation of the network.


EcoMobility, one of the five RIS3CAT communities granted in 2015, is a cluster of companies and research institutions, created with the purpose of reducing contamination caused by transport. Within the EcoMobility Community, the Port of Barcelona is the leader of the RePort Project.


The Action aims at increasing the use of Motorways of the Sea services for transport of cars in the Mediterranean, by improving the infrastructure for direct land and sea access to the ports of Koper and Barcelona.


The aim of the project is to develop a safe, efficient and integrated logistic chain for the supply of LNG as a fuel for the maritime sector in the Iberian Peninsula. It will foster the use of this alternative fuel not only in vessels but also in the port environment.


The development of maritime transport and logistics sector in the Mediterranean still needs to be improved in order to ensure more efficient and sustainable trade relations between the northern and south-eastern shores of the Mediterranean Sea.

Cabotage in Brasil

The Cabotage project, carried out in 2014, was a study on the development of the Cabotage sector in Brasil.

SSS in Mexico

This study aimed to analyse the viability of short sea shipping within Mexico and towards the North American waters, and its strategy of implementation.
