PIANC Mediterranean Days

The “Mediterranean Days of Coastal and Port Engineering” were started after that a MoU was agreed in 2007 between Italian, Spanish, French and Portuguese National Sections of PIANC.

Main goal

To enhance the development of a common technical culture in the area of the Mediterranean Sea in the field of coastal and port engineering, taking into account the necessity of elaborating new strategies to face properly the new challenges of the global market without neglecting environmental and social issues, in the light of sustainable development.

Also, historical heritage and marine and coastal ecosystems assume a very significant value for Med Countries, so that a correct point of balance must be found with infrastructural needs.

A general increased awareness of common values and items of Med Countries can play a positive role in an integrated strategic approach in the above mentioned field.
