New brochure of the Scandinavian-Adriatic Corridor
The term Scandria® Corridor stands for a geographic corridor, which represents the shortest link from the European North to the northern part of the Adriatic Sea. Scandria® – as a strategic approach – comprises not just an improvement of the infrastructure within the Corridor, but also supports spatial development and economic growth by linking regions with better interoperability of traffic flows.
As an instrument for the implementation of the strategy, manifold Interreg projects financed by EU in different programs and regions have been realised. By cooperation of the projects, undertaken by different regional initiatives of member states, the projects can benefit from each other and thus an added value by exchanging information and project findings has been created. Steady, continuous action and perseverance strengthened the long-term process developing the existing Scandria® Corridor.
Scandria® aims at the implementation of a “green” transport corridor, sustainable traffic solutions with reference to multimodal transport as well as the development of technologies for the use of renewable energies. Furthermore it is foreseen to initiate a platform as triple-helix approach with partners from administration, business and science for an exchange of information and findings as well as for cooperation to implement an economically strong North-South development axis in Europe. This integrated approach is supported by actions and initiatives from local to transnational level.
In August 2015 the widened Suez Canal has been inaugurated. In connection with NAPA ports of the Adriatic region the Canal creates an important basis for a further strengthening of the corridor. Scandria® provides a reduction of transport times and therefore also the possibility of saving emissions for the realisation of a “green” corridor.
The brochure gives an insight into the development of the Scandria® Corridor during the last years and looks ahead … follow this process and also become a part of Scandria®!
