The NAIADES action plan is a Commission initative to enhance the use of inland navigation as part of intermodal freight solutions, in order to create a sustainable, competitive and environmentally friendly European wide transport network.

This objective was embraced by the inland navigation sector, who, together with the Commission have created PLATINA, an FP7 project consisting of 23 partners from nine different countries, in order to accelerate the achievement of the NAIADES aims. This multi-disciplinary knowledge network will allow PLATINA to create the momentum necessary to achieve the NAIADES objectives.

The core consortium is formed by via donau (Austria) as coordinator, Voies navigables de France (France), Bundesverband der Deutschen  Binnenschiffahrt (Germany), Promotie Binnenvaart Vlaanderen (Belgium) and the Rijkswaterstaat Centre for Transport and Navigation (The Netherlands).
