On 14 October, the University of Ca Foscari in Venice, a partner of the MIMOSA project, presented the main achievements related to the improvement of cross-border connections between Italy and Croatia as well as studies performed in the framework of the project to reduce the carbon footprint and incentive Intermodality.
The CEI-ES presented the MIMOSA project complemented by case studies presented by the University of Rijeka, which highlighted how “railway and maritime transportation modes clearly have a lower carbon footprint impact than using road transportation by public or private means of transport”. Best practices were illustrated also by the Region Friuli Venezia-Giulia regarding specific initiatives to support intermodal transport and maritime connections developed by the region.
Highlights of the discussions were that dialogue was the basis for cross-border cooperation to find ways to learn from each other and face more future challenges at global, economic, environment and social level. EU programmes in that regard are key to help to identify and build solutions at international level.
