The Escola Europea de Short Sea Shipping is a European training center and a reference for intermodal transport and logistics, promoting sustainable logistics in Europe through innovative courses. Its main goal is to promote intermodal transport as the basis for sustainable logistics in Europe.
The organisation focuses its activities on three main areas: Project Office and Innovation, Training and Communication, Knowledge and Research.
The Escola started its activities in 2006 as a training centre for European professionals and students of logistics, transport management and international commerce. Years later, it gained experience and know-how in the areas of administration of national and international projects, communication, content creation, and promotion and development of logistics' clusters in collaboration with recognised European institutions.
The contribution of the Escola's partners is of the essence: the Port of Barcelona –the main partner-, the Ports of Rome, the Port of Genoa and Grimaldi Group Napoli and Grandi Navi Veloci. Since the beginning, the Escola works hand in hand with the European Shortsea Network and specifically with the national Shortsea Promotion Centers, which promote short sea and the Escola's activities on local levels.
