Supported projects shall help to solve common challenges and exploit joint forces in one of the four areas and help to make the region of Öresund, Kattegat and Skagerrak strong and competitive.
About the area of transport, Interreg writes:
The Öresund-Kattegat Skagerrak area needs effective and sustainable transport to develop a cohesive, attractive and accessible cross-border region. Increased accessibility creates larger labor markets that strengthen international competitiveness.
In the area of connectivity, the programme will support connecting transport corridors with the TEN-T network, mainly by complementing planned TEN-T projects.
The transport area has three specific goals;
- to improve accessibility to and through the Öresund-Kattegat-Skagerrak region
- to reduce transport time with environmentally friendly modes of transport for people and goods to the nearest hub in TEN-T
- to increase environmentally friendly transport work in selected corridors, including in the TEN-T nuclear network as well as in and around urban areas
