Sustainable and Multimodal Transport Actions in the Scandinavian-Adriatic Corridor
The project Scandria2Act successfully established a formal cooperation of regions at the Baltic Sea for modern transport along one of the nine European transport corridors, which will help those regions to contribute to shaping the corridor and to benefit from it economically in the long run.
North Sea Baltic Connector of Regions
In the project NSB Core, spatial and transport planners and other experts representing local, regional and national authorities from six countries developed a joint vision on how to ensure better integrated and accessible eastern and southern parts of the Baltic Sea region.
Enhancing freight Mobility and logistics in the BSR by strengthening inland waterway and river sea transport and proMoting new internAtional shipping services
In the Interreg project EMMA, waterway administrations, business support organisations and ports together with shipping companies, logistics businesses, and research organisations jointly raised inland waterway transportation higher on the political agendas in five countries around the Baltic Sea.
TENTacle - Capitalising on TEN-T core network corridors for prosperity, growth and cohesion
The Interreg project TENTacle equipped public authorities and industry around the Baltic Sea with recommendations on how to benefit from the core transport network corridors in order to boost prosperity and growth around the Baltic Sea.
Mitigating the effects of emergencies in Baltic Sea Region ports
The Interreg project HAZARD made firefighters, coastguards, policemen and others involved in rescue operations in ports around the Baltic Sea more fit to save people and goods when accidents happen: Large scale exercises helped sea port authorities and rescue services to improve their structures and procedures to be better prepared for the next accident to come.
RTF - Using ferry real time information to optimise intermodal transport chains in the Baltic Sea Region
The project makes real-time information about ferry delays, cancellations and travel time prognoses available to travel planning systems that cover different modes of transport. Real-time travel information is an immensely dynamic field – and ferry transportation is currently at risk of being left behind. The project sets up a collaborative data hub for real-time ferry information to be used for smoother transport of goods and people in the Baltic Sea region.
Access to clean, efficient and multimodal transport corridors in the Baltic Sea Region
The platform BSR Access facilitates innovative and sustainable transport by creating linkages between traditional infrastructure nodes and smart transport solutions to further develop the TEN-T Core Network Corridors, and contribute to sustainable growth in the region. BSR Access combines expertise from Interreg Baltic Sea Region projects NSB CoRe, TENTacle, EMMA and Scandria®2Act as well as E12 Atlantica Transport of Interreg Botnia-Atlantica, FinEst Link of Interreg Central Baltic, and Green Regions with Alternative Fuels for Transport, funded by the EU Connecting Europe Facility.
Strengthening Combined Transport in the Baltic Sea Region
In combined transport, goods are moved by train, ships or barges, with the first and last mile covered by road as short as possible. However, the share of this efficient and more environmentally friendly transport scheme remains small in the Baltic Sea region due to spatially scattered transport and a tradition of road transport. COMBINE aims to increase this share by improving the operation at terminals and reducing the costs of the last mile by introducing new solutions such as platooning, longer/heavier trucks, e-trucks, and LNG-trucks.
Enhancing freight Mobility and logistics in the BSR by strengthening inland waterway and river sea transport and proMoting new internAtional shipping services - Extension
All too often transport policies focus on road and rail transport. The EMMA project brought attention to the potential of inland waterway transport (IWT) in the Baltic Sea region. Partners studied strengths and weaknesses and elaborated recommendations to better deploy IWT. For example, EMMA has identified new potential routes and services and set up several business plans. In EMMA Extension, commercial pilots are implemented in Sweden, Lithuania and Poland based on these business plans. EMMA has revealed that digitalisation is crucial to make IWT competitive. Therefore, EMMA Extension works to strengthen River Information Services and Vessel Traffic Services.
