Elaboration of examination of economical effectiveness of the planned action of a water corridor Danube–Oder–Elbe including examination of ecological and other aspects (for example also quantification of contributions in the field of energy supply, flood protection and reduction of flood damage and also for direct and indirect job possibilities).
Elaboration of SWOT analysis (S–Strengths, W–Weaknesses, O–Opportunities, T–Threats).
Stabilization of the route in the territory (north/Oder – connection Ostrava – Koźle, south/Morava – Danube) including elaboration of variant D+ according to assignment of the Slovak party and elaboration of recommendation for selection of the variant.
Inquiry of transport needs of commodities suitable to be transported by inland navigation within transport corridors Baltic (Szczecin) – Black Sea (Bratislava) – Far East (China, India) and North Sea (Hamburg) – Black Sea (Bratislava) – Far East (China, India).
Implementation of the above-mentioned targets.
