The establishment of this new and promising Institution consitutes the main objective of the project and it is proposed as an inovative tool for the promotion of the cities-ports of the Black Sea and of their cultural treasures. Its pilot implementation will be launched in the city-port of Istanbul using the financial resources of the “LIMEN” project. Additionaly, the aim of the project is for the Institution of the “Black Sea Cultural Port” to be established in a way that will promote the institutional cooperation of the cities-ports on a permanent basis. Also, to develop a structured cultural-touristic-economic-social network, to improve the administrative capacity at local level and to create the conditions of promoting and supporting the SMEs involved in the fields of culture and tourism. By using the euporean experience from similar institutions and the existing networks in the area,  the project aims to: ·        become the “umbrella action” for all the cross-border and transnational development initiatives that concern the cities-ports in the Black Sea basin ·        create a development platform that, in economic and cultural terms, will ensure the equal and sustainable cooperation which will meet the contemporary needs ·        to promote the cultural value of these areas and to connect the past with the current economic scenery ·        to promote the tourism product by developing an insitutionalised model of  cooperation, characterised by parity between the participant city-ports ·        support the tourism and other enterprises in the promotion process of special tourism products of each area, especially those connected with the ports and the sea routes.
