InterGreen-Nodes aims at developing green, intermodal, last-mile freight transport in urban areas in the southern part of the Scandria®Corridor. The project will demonstrate highly innovative solutions in a practical and tangible way and disseminate them. The project will focus on three dimension:

  • Political level: Establish reciprocal information flows and appropriate context framing between EU and local/regional actors, in order to reduce the gap between the communication of relevant information on the developing green, intermodal, last mile freight transport in urban areas and their broader implications. The extended stakeholder network of the WPT1 ensures that the involvement of stakeholders from the CE area is attained, both in terms of thematic expertise and geographical location.

  • Spatial level: Practical spatial planning solutions and communication measures will be developed, that will help facing the challenges of land use conflicts. They will lead to actions plans for all participating regions, but also to tools, that can be used in any other region.

  • Technical level: Terminals will test different innovations and disseminate them, first to other project partners, then to terminals and ports. This will be achieved through five highly visible demonstrators. Experiences will be lead to easy to implement step by step instructions and trainings in order to achieve wide spread use of these solutions throughout the CE program area and beyond. Demonstrators will include innovative vehicle technology, new processes and innovative transport chains..

The partner structure consists of terminals and regional influencers in Germany, Italy, Hungary and Slovenia. Practical/operational implementation is provided by the node operators, regional planning organizations will develop spatial planning and political level solutions and implement them.
