Halfway through the project, the DAPhNE consortium uniting 23 partners from 9 Danube riparian countries is delivering notable progress in all project activities, especially related to port legislation & funding, port administration & management, port development but also in relation to port strategy & port network formation.

In terms of port legislation and funding, the involved PPs started drafting their related national reports covering the legal framework as well as the funding opportunities in Austria, Hungary, Slovakia, Croatia, Romania and Bulgaria. To help investigate the current procedures that port authorities/administrations from the Danube region apply to different kinds of port users, five national reports on port administrative processes have been elaborated covering the status in Austria, Hungary, Slovakia, Croatia, Romania and Bulgaria. The PPs have also finalised the national reports on port management models in the same countries.
