COMBINE was part of the story and participated in one of the sixteen parallel sessions dedicated to different thematic fields. These sessions allowed to learn together about tangible project and project platform results bringing positive developments to the region. The project results were discussed in the event though it is clear that "together and beyond borders we can do more", as Susanne Sherrer, Director of the Managing Authority / Joint Secretariat of the Interreg Baltic Sea Region Programme, concluded.
The meeting was followed by very positive news the next day: nine extension stage projects had been approved by the Monitoring Committee, EMMA Extension being one of them. The COMBINE project, aiming at strengthening combined transport in the Baltic Sea Region, has some common project partners with project EMMA, which concentrated on enhancing inland waterway transport in the Baltic Sea Region. The EMMA Extension project strives to further enhance freight mobility and logistics in the Baltic Sea region.
Next, the COMBINE team will participate in the 10th Annual Forum of the EU Strategy for the Baltic Sea Region that will be held on the 12th and 13th of June in Gdansk. The 10th jubilee Annual Forum concludes main achievements of the Strategy, but also paves the way for smarter, more efficient and better coordinated actions aiming at prosperous future for the Baltic Sea Region. Please find more information on the Annual Forum here and remember to register for the conference! See you there!
