Working groups will be created and will work on: establishing an observatory on passenger transport on AI area; elaboration of feasibility studies on the integration of ports with hinterland/transport networks for passengers/freight and on the harmonization of services for passengers with special needs in the Port system of AI area; development of a common capacity building action for ports operators for the implementation of services for passengers with special needs; transferring knowledge and practices on past pilot activities, assessment of the Adriatic port system, master plan, strategies&action plans to improve the mobility in the Adriatic.
