These two days will bring together all the economic and corporate actors of rivers in France and Europe to broach the vast subject of rivers in all their dimensions (economic, environmental, territorial links, innovation, governance, etc.).

They will also allow European actors to speak, thereby enriching debates through sharing experiences. Organised by the professional federation representing French river freight transporters (Entreprises Fluviales de France) with the support of Métropole Rouen Normandie and many partners including CNR.
