After three years of successful implementation, the partnership of the ADRIPASS project (Integrating multimodal connections in the Adriatic Ionian Region), funded under the INTERREG ADRION Programme and led by the Central European Initiative - Executive Secretariat (CEI-ES), virtually gathered on 2 December for their final conference.

The event focused on “Strategies and tools to reduce cross-border obstacles”, aimed at providing evidence of the positive results achieved in the framework of the project. In particular, among all, the key points of the ADRIPASS transnational strategy for the improvement of multimodal transport and accessibility were presented as a final project outcome, representing a basis for a strong transnational cooperation network fostering a sustainable, integrated and multimodal transport for the Adriatic-Ionian Region.

More than 70 participants attended the event and provided important feedback to the ADRIPASS results, in terms of capitalisation in the Adriatic-Ionian Region.

CEI-ES Secretary General Roberto Antonione, in welcoming the participants, underlined that  ADRIPASS had provided a valuable contribution to the CEI mission and confirmed the willingness to capitalise on the best practices achieved over its implementation period, with the ultimate goal to further promote multimodal sustainable transport in the region.

Round table discussions confirmed the need for a more unified and sustainable multimodal transport system, which would connect the EU and the Western Balkan countries, supported by transnational cooperation and joint efforts to involve decision makers.
