As Morski writes, organised by the Croatian Maritime Affairs Ministry, an online meeting was held on March the 2nd, 2022, at which the activities of the aforementioned ministry within the INTESA project – Improving Maritime Transport Efficiency and Safety in the Adriatic were presented to stakeholders, who were primarily from the wider Split area.

Among other things, the pilot activities of upgrading the Croatian unified interface for maritime formalities was emphasised, which enabled two-way exchange of information with port IT systems, with special focus on the national port information system – nPCS.

A description of future actions was also presented within the scope of this praiseworthy project, with a view to facilitating the exchange and distribution of MSI maritime security information, while the activities of other Croatian and Italian project partners were briefly presented.

The INTESA project, with a total value of 2,896,480.00 euros, of which 85 percent is being co-financed by the European Union (EU), will establish a network between the national maritime administrations of the Republic of Croatia and neighbouring Italy and the most important port authorities in the Adriatic Sea as a whole. The aim of the project is to harmonise and optimise the procedures of the entire maritime transport process, for the purpose of a much more efficient and safer port and maritime transport system.

The project itself began on January the 1st, 2019, and will end on June the 30th, 2022, and in that period, the Croatian Maritime Affairs Ministry has had 265,020.00 euros at its disposal, of which 39,753.00 euros are from the Croatian state budget.

In addition to the employees of the Croatian Maritime Affairs Ministry, the meeting was attended by representatives of the State Hydrometeorological Institute, the Croatian Hydrographic Institute, the Maritime Faculty in Split, the Plovput company and the Port Authorities of both Split and Ploce in central and southern Dalmatia.
