Rhombus Launch Event

Date:                April 3, 2024 (13.00 – 15.30h)
Location:          House of the Netherlands Provinces, Rue de Trèves 59, 1040 Brussels

This is a side event during the Connecting Europe Days on 2-5 April.
Rhombus is a global plan for the sustainable upgrading of inland ports in the rhomboid shaped 
network of inland waterways in Northwest Europe. The main focus is to facilitate modal shift,
sustainability and the circular economy.
In our launch event we will present the ongoing projects, funded by the European union.
Also, we will contribute in close collaboration with the RH2INE project and SYNERGY project to the 
discussions at the Connecting Europe Days. Our message is to take a holistic approach on transport
infrastructure, energy infrastructure and digital infrastructure. We recommend to put more effort in 
stimulating synergetic elements in future funding schemes.

The RH2INE project and SYNERGY project have both separate break-out sessions on the April 4.

Looking forward to seeing you on April 3. Please sign in here

The event is being organised together with the Belgian Presidency of the Council of the EU.
