The project follows an initiative of regions in the Baltic Sea Region on the Scandinavian-Mediterranean Core Network Corridor. The three year project focuses on clean fuels and transport services, both of goods and passengers. The project also promotes strategic and operational efforts to develop energy efficient transport.

The Lead Partner of the project is German Joint Spatial Planning Department Berlin-Brandenburg. Helsinki-Uusimaa Regional Council is a project partner and responsible for compiling a publication of Strategic Scandria®- Corridor-Node Dialogue representing growth corridors in Finland, Sweden and Germany. The project has 19 partners from Finland, Sweden, Norway, Germany and Denmark.

The project is part-financed by Interreg Baltic Sea Region Programme. Scandria®2Act has intensive cooperation with the NSB CoRe project, in which Helsinki-Uusimaa Regional Council is the lead partner.

Workshops led by Helsinki-Uusimaa Regional Council

Five regional workshops were organised in winter 2016-2017 by Helsinki-Uusimaa Regional Council.

The regional workshops elaborated on the recent studies carried out by Helsinki-Uusimaa Regional Council on logistics and regional economic development for land use and spatial planning. The workshops focused on the passenger transport corridors in the southern Finland and long distance commuting, including for instance Helsinki-Turku fast train connection.

In the future, the council focuses on the collaboration of EU financed transport projects in the Baltic Sea area.
