EMMA is funded by the Interreg Baltic Sea Region Programme 2014-2020, which supports integrated territorial development and cooperation for a more innovative, better accessible and sustainable Baltic Sea region. 

The EMMA project aims at tackling the challenges and opportunities focusing on inland- and river-sea shipping.

The Programme is an agreement between EU member states Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Sweden and the northern parts of Germany as well as partner countries Norway, Belarus and the northwest regions of Russia. The Programme is funded by the European Union and approved by the European Commission.
