Taking into account the synergies that this action has with other projects that are under way, the Portonovo project is open to exchanges and possible common actions.

On 10 February at Cherbourg’s Cité de la Mer Convention Centre, urban and maritime transportation actors from the four corners of the Atlantic Arc got together to discuss the issue of “Ports and the quality of water: the question of  governance“. As José Juanes, Spanish speaker from the University of Cantabria and project leader, mentioned, the aim is to find “a methodology to facilitate the control of the quality of port waters”.

It was around this innovative approach, organized in the framework of the European Portonovo that conference participants were able to discuss how best can ports manage the quality of their waters, in line with their economic and  environmental partners.
