Fostering an access to clean, efficient and multimodal transport corridors in the Baltic Sea Region!
Project Platform in transport interoperability approved by the Interreg V B Baltic Sea Region Programme
Competence in corridor impacts | corridor governance | clean fuels | first and last mile | access to corridor hubs | urban nodes | supply chains
Implementation period: 10/2018–09/2021
BSR Access combines competences and geographies of the involved projects and organisations into one cooperation platform dealing with transport interoperability and regional development. It supports the European Coordinators and EUSBSR Priority Area and Horizontal Action Coordinators with synergetic and genuine knowledge on how to facilitate the high quality, innovative and sustainable services for transport and mobility along the corridors and how to make these the drivers for accessibility and economic, social and territorial cohesion.
The project platform focuses on specific topics identified in the EU coordinators' Issues Papers that are missing or inadequately addressed. These include: passenger dimension in multimodality, inland navigation in logistics chains, coherent alternative fuel models across national borders, integration of urban nodes in the core network corridors, aligning of long-haul transport with first and last mile delivery, and interdependencies between spatial and transport planning
We strive to mobilise stakeholders to a more coherent, cross-sectoral and adaptive planning approach that would ensure a better access infrastructure to and an enhanced development of the TEN-T core network corridors, and thereby a sustainable regional growth.
To achieve that,
BSR Access aims to:
➢ Create synergies between the involved projects by collecting, benchmarking and spreading their good practice in transport interoperability
➢ Break a silo-thinking in corridor planning by bringing together public and market stakeholders from various competence sectors and governance levels – to capitalise on the good practice accumulated by the projects and agree on transferable solutions
➢ Streamline political debate on durable policy and action proposals in interoperability based on the outcomes of cross-sectoral, multi-level and transnational stakeholder dialogue
➢ Providing a meeting place for owners and promoters of transport interoperability projects in the Baltic Sea Region and enable them to exchange knowledge and synergise on project outcomes and jointly discuss the transferability of solutions
➢ Bringing transport and regional development stakeholders into an active dialogue towards silo-breaking
➢ Ensuring TEN-T core network corridors enhanced development, and thereby support a sustainable regional growth
➢ Demonstrating evidence for further transport interoperability investments in connection to the TEN-T core network corridors implementation
➢ Status reports and catalogues presenting good practice and transferable solutions in transport interoperability worked out by the involved projects and the mobilised stakeholders
➢ Policy and action proposals in corridor-related interoperability
➢ Position papers on streamlined planning for seamless access infrastructure to the TEN-T Core Network Corridors
➢ A tested stakeholder model for cross-sectoral, multi-level and transnational dialogue on transport interoperability challenges and solutions
➢ Recommendations for new EU-funded projects and initiatives
The main output of BSR Access is an action plan of interoperability that elaborates on the interaction between regional and transport development, complexity of mega-projects as stimulators of economic activity, deployment of clean fuels, streamlining of supply chain processes as well as transport development in first and last mile connections.
BSR Access aims at mobilising stakeholders to a more coherent, cross-sectoral and adaptive planning approach that would ensure a better access infrastructure to the TEN-T core network corridors, and thereby a sustainable regional growth.
