Need  and  added  value  for  the  Danube  Region  Strategy

The main target of this study is to analyse the potential of the mentioned new inland waterway link Danube-Oder-Elbe from an economical, ecological, hydrological, transport and social point of view.

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).
