“INTERCONNECT” application for sustainable mobility in the south Baltic regions

The SustainTrans research team will hopefully from next fall (and three years ahead) conduct research on how to curb car reliant mobility and improve public transport  to eventually become sustainable across (and between) south Baltic regions. The "INTERCONNECT" application to the South Baltic Programme is managed by Region Blekinge, and involves nine partners from six countries, along with numerous [...]
