The PortEconomics Initiative

PortEconomics is a web-based initiative aiming to advance knowledge exchange on seaport studies. Established by maritime economists affiliated to academic institutions in Belgium, Greece and the Netherlands. It provides freely accessible research, education, information, and network-building material on critical issues of port economics, management and policies. The main objectives of PortEconomics are: (a) to develop and promote resources for increased quality port studies; (b) to disseminate the activities and cutting-edge port research and analysis conducted by the group members and associates; and (c) to foster a knowledge exchange network of scholars, policy-makers, practitioners and students interested in port studies.
