DANUBE SKILLS – First partners meeting

The first Danube SKILLS Partners Meeting hosted by LP in Bucharest on 22 February checked and confirmed adequate set up of project teams at partner level, familiarization with DTP rules and preparedness of all partners for project start.

All partners, particularly newcomers who had little or no former experience in European projects, received detailed instructions on their project management and communication tasks and were also assigned specific responsibilities regarding immediate steps: organisation of the public consultation on professional qualifications and collection of information on state of play in terms of modal share promotion in their countries.

ASPs, Mr. Rob Van Reem and Mr. Dejan Trifunovic, attending the meeting on behalf of EDINNA and the Danube Commission, respectively, congratulated the partners on the professional approach of the sensitive issues governing nautical skills and competencies in inland navigation, both on shore and onboard the vessel.
