On Saturday, June 28th was launched the fast sea-line that links Trieste to Slovenia and Croatia. The hydrofoil connects daily during the summer the Istrian ports, of Piran Rovinj and Pula (the latter on Saturday and Sunday), departing from Pier IV in the Trieste port.

The line, operated by the TriesteLines, is co-funded by the Autonomous Region of Friuli Venezia Giulia within the European project EA SEA-WAY under the IPA Adriatic Programme 2007-2013 and the WP6 activities that foresee the realisation of pilot actions. The project aims to improve the accessibility and mobility of passengers across the Adriatic area and its hinterland through the development of new cross-border sustainable and integrated transport services and the development of physical infrastructure related to these new services.

The kick off meeting of the project RENEW SCHOOL was held in Graz, Austria. The main objective of the project, funded by the Intelligent Energy Europe program, is to promote hi energy performance school buildings retrofit using prefabricated insulated timber modules. Although this technique is spreading mainly in the countries of Central and Northern Europe where the tradition of using wood is larger, it can actually be used in all climatic zones in Europe. The advantages of this technique are: the use of eco-friendly materials, speed of completion, the non-invasiveness of the interventions in the inner parts of the buildings, the possibility of integrating within the modular facade the ventilation systems and renewable energy sources, the certainty of costs.
