BSR TransGovernance project approved

25 January, 2013

The project objective is to demonstrate how multi-level governance models, tools and approaches can contribute to a better alignment of transport policies in the BSR at various administrative levels and better incorporation of the business perspective. This is expected to increase commitment of public and private stakeholders to achieving greener and more efficient transport in the Baltic Sea Region, in line with PA Transport of the EU Baltic Sea Strategy.

The project has a strong triple-helix partnership from all BSR EU Member States and Norway representing all vertical governance levels. It is supported by PA Transport Coordinators of the EU Baltic Sea Region Strategy, national transport ministries and several other actors, which will be engaged as reference partners.

The project will place particular focus on developing and testing joint planning and implementation frameworks for transport policies at such reference scales, which have witnessed a long process of cooperation across the national borders with involvement of public/private stakeholders, and/or which have gathered a vast evidence for MLG actions. These are: MACRO (overall BSR area), MESO (cross-border integration areas), CORRIDOR (transnational multimodal transport corridors) and MICRO (intermodal terminals).
