Sustainable transport


The Horizon 2020 programme and the European energy and transport trends for 2030 and 2050 establish two important objectives. The first objective is to achieve the full greening of transport. This entails the introduction of innovative technologies and renewable and alternative energies. The second objective is to create more competitive regions. This involves improving and diversifying regional accessibility. Both objectives potentially increase the costs involving the mobility of persons and goods. However, they also present significant economic catalysts for the European regions. The INTERREG IVC projects produced many Good Practices which provide models and policies for dealing effectively with these challenges. The workshop will address these successful Good Practices.
