Port systems

Port systems

IH Cantabria is very active in increasing knowledge in this complez field while also developing tools and methodologies applied to the environmental management of port systems. Many of the efforts of recent years have been based upon the principles established by the European legislation on water quality.

In line with these principles, IH Cantabria addresses three major challenges:

The adaptation of the generic goals of protection and improvement of aquatic systems to the uniqueness of ports, by posting the ROM 5.1;

The implementation of management models in different geographical areas contrasting them in nationwide studies (Santander, Huelva, Cadiz, Tarragona, Santa Cruz de Tenerife, etc.) as wella s at the european level (UK, Ireland, Portugal, France);

The involvement of the business sector for technology transfer and innovation, by creating a discussion group framedwithin the PROTECMA technology platform.
