DANTE aims at identifying and eliminating administrative barriers for inland waterway transport (IWT) on the Danube & its navigable tributaries as a joint initiative of the private sector and the national public authorities responsible for these barriers. Good practices and guidelines for effective administration of IWT activities shall be developed with regard to the identified barriers. The proposed solutions will be discussed with the responsible authorities at national working tables, as well as in transnational ones. This matrix approach shall deliver quick solutions and a wide harmonisation of procedures and processes along the river. The monitoring system for collecting user experiences (supported by an online tool) will be a key element for successful project implementation. DANTE facilitates the work of EUSDR PA1a and is acknowledged by the EC/DG MOVE as part of their efforts to reduce administrative barriers in the transport sector. DANTE actively involves the Danube Commission (DC) and therefore also functions as platform of the related joint efforts of DC & EC.
