How to govern European transport corridors?
Upon invitation of the Rhine-Alpine Corridor, several collaboration platforms organised along European transport corridors presented their experiences during the 10th edition of the Rhine-Alpine Talks "EGTC and other Governance Models for Transport Corridors And Larger Cooperation Areas" on 17 September 2021. The governance of cooperation structures is of crucial significance for its success and each cooperation structure needs to find its appropriate way for its organisation.
Following an introduction by Pavel Branda, Chair of the CBC Intergroup at the Committee of the Regions about successful EGTCs facilitating cooperation, several cooperation areas from across Europe reported about their practical experiences with their governance models.
Amongst others, like the Interregional Alliance for the Rhine-Alpine Corridor, the Kvarken Council EGTC and the Main Line for Europe initiative, Dr. Jürgen Neumüller from the Joint Spatial Planning Department Berlin – Brandenburg presented the organisation of the Scandria®Alliance promoting territorial cooperation from Scandinavia to the Adriatic Sea. Scandria®Alliance is currently opreating on the basis of an agreement between its members.
