2E3S kicks off the courses this fall with a course-workshop on the Motorways of the Sea (MOST). The MOST Management course will take place between the 26th and the 29th of September on board of a Grimaldi Lines Ro-Pax vessel in the crossing between Barcelona and Civitavecchia. Specialists from the transport sector and teaching staff will include, among others, Ana Arévalo (Commercial Manager, Port Authority of Barcelona), Andrea Campagna (Consultant, Escola Europea de Short Sea Shipping), Eduard Rodés (Director, Escola Europea de Short Sea Shipping), Francesco Abate (Short Sea Commercial and Operational Senior Executive, Grimaldi Group), Guido Grimaldi (Corporate Short Sea Shipping Commercial Director of the Grimaldi Group), Malcolm Morini (Promotion Area Manager, Porti di Roma e del Lazio), Pasqualino Monti (President, Autorità Portuale di Civitavecchia), Silvio Ferrando (Marketing and International Business Manager, Porto di Genova), Francesca D’Orsi (Trasporti & Lavoro) and a representative of Grandi Navi Veloci.
Targeting professionals, this course will give a unique opportunity to network, discover short sea shipping operations first hand and learn about the European policy on transport, all the while travelling along one of the principal Motorways of the Sea in Europe. This course is sponsored by the Italian Ports Association (Associazione dei Porti Italiani – Assoporti), Confitarma (Confederazione Italian Armatori), Rete Autostrade Mediterranee, Trasporti & Lavoro and the European Shortsea Network. A full programme of the course can be found on the Escola’s website, together with details on how to register: http://www.2e3s.eu/course/most-management-per-professionisti/.
During the autumn term the Escola has also planned training courses for professionals coming from Spain (24-27 of October), France (27-29 of November) and Portugal (11-15 of December). The immensily practical courses will aim to provide a global and international view of intermodal transport in the countries of the Mediterranean basin.
