Sustainable and Multimodal Transport Actions in the Scandinavian-Adriatic Corridor (Scandria2Act)
Scandria®2Act is a joint proposal of regions located along the Baltic Sea Region stretch of the Scandinavian-Mediterranean Core Network Corridor (ScanMed) 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 approach.
Scandria®2Act covers partners from all member states and Norway located along the ScanMed Corridor. It is representing relevant urban nodes as well as multimodal nodes along the corridor. Thus, Scandria®2Act offers a unique opportunity for joint action!
The project partners have been engaged in previous project approaches like Scandria and TransGovernance in the BSR Programme 20072014 or in the 8 million city project and Green STRING project and others in crossborder cooperation programmes. In Scandria®2Act partners are bundling efforts relatet 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.
Major objective of Scandria®2Act is to foster CLEAN, MULTIMODAL TRANSPORT through the corridor regions to increase connectivity and competitiveness of corridor regions 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. By a CLEAN FUEL CORRIDOR ROAD SHOW addressed to potential customers, the market share of clean fuels shall be increased.
The partners will elaborate a MULTIMODAL TRANSPORT OUTLOOK to obtain better knowledge on freight flows that can be shipped on environmentally friendly modes. They will 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 transfered to decision makers within a STRATEGIC CORRIDORNODE DIALOGUE contributing a regional development perspective to policy making at European and national level.
