Total budget: 215,000 EUR
Main financier: Interreg Botnia-Atlantica
Project timetable: 05/2021–10/2022
The project aims to create decision guidance documents that can serve as the basis for a long-term, cross-border (east-west) strategy/position for how the question of the fixed link will be promoted in the future.
The project consists of two parts:
- A comprehensive impact assessment. The impact assessment will encompass a quality assurance of the project’s socio-economic consequences as well as a general environmental assessment of the suggested alternative routes.
- Analysis of business proposals. Business proposals are complicated by nature, which is why expert knowledge and further investigation are necessary to analyze their content and assess their feasibility.
