Welcome to the final conference – E12 Atlantica Transport

March 14-15, 2018 in Vaasa, Finland

E12 Atlantica Transport builds on an already strong relation between the three regions of Nordland, Västerbotten and Österbotten. So far, this collaboration has achieved important results and now is the time to take the cooperation to the next level.
In this EU-project, we have built unique knowledge and created common tools for future transport- and infrastructure development across three countries. Even though we share a homogenous region, our common geography is large. Thus, development of transport and infrastructure must be seen in a wider context to strengthen our advantages and competitiveness.
Soon the project will come to an end, it is the time to present the results and to discuss how to integrate them in our collaboration. We will share our plans for infrastructure- and transport development, a new more formalized organization for cross-border cooperation and a knowledge and dialogue process on cross-border infrastructure planning.

During the first conference day, we will also get to know and discuss results of the Interreg Baltic Sea Region Programme financed NSB CoRe -project aiming to improve the sustainable accessibility of the Eastern Baltic Sea Region to freight and passenger transport (the NSB CoRe workshops detailed program can be found HERE).

It’s time for us to share our new knowledge, we hope you will join us! Welcome!

Find the detailed programme HERE and register HERE (deadline for registration February 28).
