Follow @PORTOPIA_EU on twitter!

18 January 2017

Do you already follow @PORTOPIA_EU, the official twitter page of the PORTOPIA project? Here are some reasons why you should follow it: it doesn’t merely share articles and announce important events, but it also provides graphs and data on EU port statistics, governance and environmental management.

What can you expect?

Every week, @PORTOPIA_EU shares facts about European ports and port performance with its followers. These facts are based on the ESPO publication ‘Trends in EU ports governance 2016’, on the ‘ESPO/EcoPorts Port Environmental Review 2016’ and on European and international studies on port performance as well as statistics from the EU Transport Scoreboard, UNCTAD and Eurostat. You will read for example about the top 10 environmental priorities for European ports and you will learn more about the role and the objectives of European port authorities.

Furthermore, ESPO’s port of the month also shares its experience in monitoring and improving the port’s performance.

But there is more!

The PORTOPIA website is also regularly updated with new articles and blog posts. For example, you will find more detailed articles about the trends in EU ports governance, interviews with port performance experts and reflections on meetings and events and on the PORTOPIA project in general. Furthermore, the PORTOPIA deliverables are also available on the website.


The PORTOPIA project monitors and reports key performance data for European ports and thus assists the industry in moving towards a more sustainable and competitive port system. PORTOPIA provides facts and figures on different perspectives of performance: market trends, socio-economic impact of ports, port environmental management, occupational health, safety and security, logistic chain and operational efficiency, port governance and investment and user perceptions of port services.

PORTOPIA is a 4-year collaborative research project under the Seventh Framework Program (FP7) of the European Commission now known as the ‘Horizon 2020’ program.
