This event is part of DG MOVE's official programme for the European Year of Rail 2021 and is supported by the COTER Commission of the European Committee of the Regions. It relates to the objectives of the Green Deal (decarbonisation of transport and promoting a modal shift to rail) and the promotion of social, economic and territorial cohesion. The aim of the initiative is to disseminate and inform citizens and businesses about planned and ongoing projects and inter-regional cooperation on the Adriatic -Ionian railway line as the backbone of an intermodal and interconnected transport system. Panellists will showcase the inter-regional cooperation approach adopted in the planning of infrastructure projects involving rail infrastructure, regional airports and new road links, including last-mile connections with ports and hinterland connections linking the inland areas between Italy's east and west coasts. Integration of green and smart transport modes and the use of state-of-the-art and sustainable technologies such as hydrogen will be highlighted in this context. The event will also aim to identify missing links in current European transport corridors and opportunities to address them so as to promote employment, improve territorial cohesion, reduce emissions, and increase public awareness of sustainability.
