Decentralised Administration of Peloponnese, Western Greece and Ionian Islands (DA-PWI) is a public authority. Its main activities are (1) urban planning and environmental policy issues; (2) technical inspection of transport, port, cross-regional infrastructure and generally all types of infrastructure; and (3) national resources and forest management issues. It is the state authority for the supervision of three regions in Greece: Region of Western Greece, Region of Peloponnese and Region of Ionian Islands. Its technical expertise is supported by its ongoing cooperation with Centres of Excellence, such as the Centre for Innovation at University of Patras and the associated Science & Technology Park.
DA-PWI personnel have extensive experience in projects and programmes and support efforts for improving the port infrastructure at Ionian ports, including the port of Kerkyra that belongs to the Adriatic area. Major areas of improvement include Intermodal Transport, Port demand/supply and advanced technologies, and Travel Information Systems. It will use its experience for achieving successful design and operation of the new IONIAN Portal to be developed in the project.
DA-PWGI will provide to the project the knowledge and experience required in the planning, design and quality assurance for intermodal operations information services and policies regarding passenger and tourist travel in its regions, especially in Kerkyra and its interaction with the port of Igoumenitsa, the tourist area of Vonitsa in hinterland of Thesprotia and beyond, and other tourist areas in the Adriatic. Through its administration on numerous ports and tourist regions in the hinterland, it will be the enabling agent for achieving increased territorial added value in the region.
