Energetic small ports in the central Baltic region

In the Central Baltic area, several small ports have developed activities and investments regarding both safety and resource efficiency services. However, at the moment, a common platform for information and marketing is missing. CBSmallPorts will gather all the relevant information and all essential resources into one joint network. The aim is to collect the data on all the services for further marketing. Instead of different separate web apps, the project will formulate a common online platform “SmallPorts” combining the information for different audiences, such as boaters, other service users and small ports owner.

The main theme of the project is about climate friendly leisure time in small ports – with a focus on energy supply and its efficient use by both boaters and other small port users. Challenges such as short season, competition of people’s time and limited financial and skills resources for the port development, are faced by all small ports despite being located in different areas. That is why cross-border cooperation has been identified as the way to achieve the project goals.
