In accordance with the Water Framework Directive, specific uses with high economic and social value carried out by ports are recognized because of this their waters are referred to as heavily modified water bodies (HMWB). This recognition justifies the reduction of its environmental objectives to fulfil the ecological potential of the water body and demands a specific management system.  PORTONOVO intends to standardize a methodology for the water quality management in port areas all along the Atlantic Area.  PORTONOVO generates a transnational and multidisciplinary cooperation framework between 11 partners from four of the five eligible regions of the Atlantic Area with the aim to tackle common problems and solutions in the field of the water quality of ports. Additionally, this project counts on the participation of another 12 associated partners.
