Regions, Corridors and Urban Nodes – Competences,  Capitalisation and Cooperation in the Baltic Sea

The three Interreg BSR Programme projects: NSB CoRe, Scandria®2Act and TENTacle, accompanied and supported by high-level regional, national and EU representatives, invite to a joint final conference in Brussels on the 6th of March 2019. 
The three projects have agreed to closely coordinate their work in tackling the shared challenges and addressing the shared target groups with the proposed policy and action solutions. Thereby, the three projects can synergise on individual results and provide strong recommendations to help exploit the added value of the TEN-T core network corridors for better infrastructure and regional development in the Baltic Sea Region. 
Ambitions of the three projects have been acknowledged by the European Commission and transport ministries of the Baltic Sea countries. Each of them has been granted the stamp of a flagship project of the EU Strategy for the Baltic Sea Region. Together, the three projects represent very well the needs and interests of both the regional and local authorities and the manufacturing, transport and logistics industries in the core network corridor implementation. The multilevel and cross-sectoral partnerships the projects have developed as well as the complementary geography of their activities provides a substantial contribution to this process, also in relation to the better understanding of mutual impacts between the core network corridors and the EU Strategy for the Baltic Sea Region. 

Key profile of the conference 
Through the joint final event, the three projects aspire to reach the relevant target groups with the outcomes of thematic activities in such areas as: corridor urban nodes, clean fuels, multilevel governance for transport and regional growth, and regional impact of large investments in corridor infrastructure.
