Inter-Connect PLUS: Intermodality Promotion and Rail Renaissance in Adriatic – Ionian Region
Interreg ADRION Programme
Purpose and goal of the project:
Inter-Connect PLUS aims at encouraging intermodal passenger transportation and stimulating rail transport, addressing new challenges such as the COVID-19 breakout. Project is lasting for only six months (January – June 2022) and it was specifically designed to build upon and elevate some of the key outputs of the successfully finalized Inter-Connect project (Interreg ADRION 2014-2020).
By incorporating the knowledge and experience gained from the COVID-19 pandemic, the partnership will collect relevant policy documents, best practices, surveys in the project’s area (Igoumenitsa – Region of Epirus GR, Bologna – Region Emilia Romagna IT, Trieste – Friuli Venezia Region IT, Ljubljana Urban Region – SI, Zagreb – HR, Durres – AL), in order to present the effect on intermodal passenger transport and upgrade Inter-Connect Roadmap and toolkit. Furthermore, the case studies from Croatia and Slovenia will be revised within the new project, addressing the pandemic’s impact on passengers’ transportation. Measures to mitigate even further negative impact of pandemic on public transport in Ljubljana urban region will be presented.
Inter-Connect PLUS will reactivate the cooperation network previously engaged in the Inter-Connect project and establish link with ADRION Thematic Clusters, guaranteeing the targeted communication of the results to key stakeholders and citizens.
