One of the beautiful things about cinema is that the narrative is constructed by responding to the director’s understanding and interpretation of the script. I have recently seen two docufilms that have put the spotlight on the current situation of our planet. The first one is by Sir David Frederick Attenborough (b. 1926). He has […]
About Escola Europea
The Escola Europea is a training centre and a reference point for intermodal transport and logistics in Europe, promoting sustainable logistics through innovative courses.
The organisation centres its activities in three principal areas: Research and Innovation, Knowledge and Training.
The Escola Europea began its activities in 2006 as a training centre for European professionals and students of logistics, transport management and international commerce. Years later, the institution gained experience and know-how in areas of international and national project administration, communication, content creation, and development and promotion of logistics modules by collaborating with known European institutions and businesses.
As we enter a new era in the Escola’s development and begin to work on our new project YEPMED, which aims to ameliorate the labour situation for young people across the Mediterranean, we have caught up with Anwar Zibaoui to share his thoughts on the importance of collaboration and sharing of know how in the […]

Short sea shipping transport wants to be included in the future Sustainable Mobility Act, as it ensures that Ro-Pax traffic, a substantial part of the transport, and continues to help the viability of various services. Through this, the integration of maritime transport into logistics chains would be facilitated. This is one of the measures proposed […]

This working meeting marked the starting point in the road towards the drafting of a general agreement between […]
The year 2020 is slowly cementing its place in the history books as the year that the world stopped. The health, social and economic consequences of this year will be felt throughout both the developed and developing world well into the middle of the decade. Transport, the backbone of the consumer-driven industry that existed pre-Covid19 […]
In recent times a vast number of technological transformations has encompassed the maritime sphere. A recent study (2020) commissioned by the European Commission’s Directorate-General for Mobility and Transport (DG Move) analysed different social aspects of the maritime transport of goods, and identified two technological trends that are particularly visible on the blue horizon in the […]
Historically, the shipping industry has been dominated by men, and the sea has been deemed a “man’s world”. This pattern can still be witnessed today (…)Today, there are organisations that work towards the normalisation of women in shipping – with the IMO having launched several initiatives.
Something similar is happening in the world of education. The Covid-19 pandemic has accelerated a vital digitalization process. Increasingly classes are being held remotely. The most important thing, nevertheless, is that a process of reinterpreting of things that can be done online has irreversibly begun.
