Innovative approaches for integrating urban nodes in the TEN-T core network corridors
Description of call
"Innovative approaches for integrating urban nodes in the TEN-T core network corridors"

Better and more effective integration of urban nodes into TEN-T corridors could address issues around integration of efficient and sustainable (e.g. using alternative fuel vehicles) solutions for 'last mile' delivery; greater use of intermodal urban freight logistics, and approaches for linking long-distance with last-mile freight delivery in urban areas.

The efficient and effective integration of urban nodes into TEN-T corridors requires further research and innovation efforts for the development and related recommendations for deployment of innovative solutions in urban areas.

One or two expert networks should be set up that develop current practices and opportunities, and produce recommendations. These expert networks could focus on how to deploy novel combinations of existing technologies/ services and involve new combinations of different stakeholder groupings, for example from research and innovation programmes, from urban planning, from infrastructure constructors and operators and from financiers, with a great emphasis on creating synergies between results of Horizon 2020 funded projects and CEF funding.
