Sustainable and Multimodal Transport Actions in the Scandinavian-Adriatic Corridor
The objective of the project is to foster clean, multimodal transport through the Scandinavian-Mediterranean Core Network Corridor regions to increase connectivity and competitiveness, while at the same time minimising the negative environmental impact induced by transport activities.
Scandria®2Act is a joint proposal of regions located along the Baltic Sea Region stretch of the Scandinavian-Mediterranean Core Network Corridor (ScanMed CNC) answering major regional development challenges associated with future transport development along the newly established ScanMed Corridor. It supports regional activities to foster the corridor deployment and to adopt regional development measures to the opportunities provided by the European transport policy.
Scandria®2Act includes partners from all EU Member States and Norway located along the ScanMed Corridor. It represents relevant urban nodes as well as multimodal nodes along the corridor. Thus, Scandria®2Act offers a unique opportunity for joint action! In Scandria®2Act partners are bundling efforts related to the deployment of the ScanMed Core Network Corridor as one of four Core Network Corridors connecting the Baltic Sea Region to the rest of the European Union.
The major objective of the project is to foster clean, multimodal transport through the corridor regions to increase connectivity and competitiveness, while at the same time minimising negative environmental impact induced by transport activities. To achieve this objective, the project partners have developed a joint approach that addresses:
- the deployment of clean fuels
- the deployment of multimodal transport services and
- the establishment of a multilevel governance mechanism based on mutual dialogue between decision makers at regional, national and European level.
The partners will develop a clean fuel deployment strategy to enable corridor regions to adopt their solutions to corridor requirements and to shape European and national policies dedicated to alternative fuels. A clean fuel corridor road show addressed to potential customers the market share of clean fuels could be increased. The project partners will elaborate on a multimodal transport outlook to obtain better knowledge on freight flows that can be shipped on environmentally friendly modes. They will also develop a multimodal service offer to improve concrete offers that can be realised along the corridor. Related to passenger transport, international public transport information services will be improved to make more international travellers choose public transport. Relevant strategic findings will be transferred to decision makers within a strategic corridor node dialogue contributing with a regional development perspective to policy making at European and national level.
Highlights by mid-term:
The Scandria®2Act project, in particular a transnational conference held in Berlin, helped to improve the communication between regional and European decision makers. Scandria®2Act succeeded in establishing a stable contact to the European Coordinators of TEN-T corridors. Project partners were invited to Corridor Fora meetings organised by the European Coordinator of the Scandinavian Mediterranean Corridor. Even beyond the scope of the project, the European coordinator for the North Sea - Baltic Corridor was involved in the project activities. The project brought results on attracting new financial resources, due to strengthened international networks created through the project cooperation and the access to decision makers at regional, national and EU-level as well as a better understanding of funding mechanisms. As an example, Scandria®2Act partners were invited by the European Coordinators to develop funding proposals on clean fuel deployment in the ScanMed-Corridor.
