Break up the silos – Connecting regions to the TEN-T corridors
flagships’ session addressed the benefits of the TEN-T Core Network Corridor implementation
in the BSR in terms of connectivity by three key themes:
- NSB CoRe: Spatial vision on corridor development as a unifying element of stakeholder cooperation
- Scandria2Act: Urban nodes as interfaces of the CNC and engines for regional growth and innovation
- TENTacle: Multi-level governance for CNCs in order to involve the relevant players and maintain constructive dialogue
– The NSB CoRe project is undertaking an ambitious perspective to combine spatial planning and transport planning towards a transnational vision, explained Malla Paajanen lead partner representative at the Helsinki-Uusimaa Regional Council.
The moderator of session, Silke Brocks from the European Commission, summed up the fruitful discussions on the themes by stating that the TEN-T CNCs in the BSR have great growth potentials around them, but the full realization still requires more co-operative and integrated approaches where the transport flagship projects do very valuable work.
– The silos between the different levels of actors need to be broken up and actions and funding possibilities need to be better coordinated and streamlined, said Bocks.
