The overall objective of the Project: improve the sustainable accessibility of the Eastern Baltic Sea Region (EBSR) in freight and passenger transport. NSB CoRe contributes to the European Union TEN-T Transport Infrastructure Policy, that connects the continent between East and West, North and South, by taking its implementation to the regional and local level by connecting the TEN-T core network corridor (CNC) of North Sea Baltic to its catchment area and access routes in EBSR. NSB CoRe implements  TEN-T Regulation from a regional development perspective and brings the needs of peripheral regions to the CNC context.

The main project activities include:

• Logistics business requirements and networking needs;
• Nodal point infrastructure analysis;
• ICT solutions for intermodal transport;
• Interconnectivity and interoperability improvements;
• Framework concepts, future scenarios, spatial structure for the development of the Commuting Growth Corridors;
• Benchmarking and implementing smart mobility services along the corridor;
• Joint transnational spatial vision on regional development, logistics and mobility of NSB CoRe corridor;
• Case studies at regional scale on improved connections between NSB CoRe corridor and 2nd level transport systems.
