PIANC is a worldwide non-political and nonprofit technical and scientific organization of national governments, corporations and private individuals. It was founded in 1885 and is the oldest international association concerned with these technical aspects of navigation. It has made – and continues to make – a vital contribution to technical development in this field. PIANC’s members form an active worldwide network of professionals in the field of inland and maritime navigation and ports.
PIANC’s objective is to promote both inland and maritime navigation by fostering progress in the planning, design, construction, improvement, maintenance and operation of inland and maritime waterways and ports and of coastal areas for general use in industrialised and industrialising countries.
