    An integrated approach to maritime policy in the EU has to be based on interdisciplinary scientific and technological knowledge. There are currently many research and investigation activities related to maritime and port issues in the EU and some attempts at coherent integration models have been made. The PORT R&D workshop aims to show the current state of the art in Europe through some specific examples of applied research on ports with projects from the 6th & 7th Framework Programmes.
