INFUTURE Round Tables 2020

Operational and Safe Inland Navigation Between Finland and Russia

INFUTURE project takes a wide-ranging approach in finding solutions for sustainable and cost-effective inland waterway traffic. Most international cargo traffic between Finland and Russia goes on land, via roads and railways. Inland waterway connection from Saimaa to Russian inland waterways could constitute a potential environmentally friendly option for transportation between the countries.

We invite you to the ONLINE INFUTURE Round Table discussions

Each Round Table includes short introduction to the theme, presentations on findings and time for comments and also for Q & A.
