The Interreg Europe programme helps regional and local governments across Europe to develop and deliver better policy. By creating an environment and opportunities for sharing solutions, Interreg Europe aim to ensure that government investment, innovation and implementation efforts all lead to an integrated and sustainable impact for people and place. Interreg Europe offers opportunities for regional and local public authorities across Europe to share ideas and experience on public policy in practice, therefore improving strategies for their citizens and communities.
The REGIO MOB project involves seven European partners with the main objective being to ensure sustainable growth in Europe by promoting sustainable mobility and improving the relevant policy instruments in each of the participating regions. The REGIO MOB project partners are as follows:
- Regional Association of Lazio Municipalities, Italy (Lead Partner)
- Institute of Traffic and Transport Ljubljana, Slovenia
- Niepolomice Municipality, Poland
- Regional Development Agency South-West Oltenia, Romania
- Region of Western Macedonia, Greece
- SEStran, Scotland
The project contributes to the consolidation of regional sustainable mobility in the participating regions, improving the way they articulate and implement their policies. During the first stage of the project, the partners aim to develop the regions through mutual learning, benchmarking and regional analysis. In the second phase, the partners will focus on the implementation of derivative actions and the promotion of regional plans of mobility and new policies on sustainable mobility.
SEStran’s role in the project will involve a SWOT analysis of the Regional Transport Strategy and a series of stakeholder workshops to determine best practice examples from the SEStran region that can be shared with the REGIO MOB partners. SEStran will use the REGIO MOB opportunity to begin the process of writing a completely new Regional Transport Strategy which incorporates outcomes from stakeholder workshops and best practice examples from other REGIO MOB partners.
The REGIO-MOB partnership, has started work on the additional activity funded by the European programme from October 2021 to September 2022. With the aim of exchanging experiences on the impact of the COVID-19 crisis on the regional mobility system, the partners will identify good practices to better address current challenges and consequently improve regional development policies in their respective regions, and finally to facilitate the replicability of the solutions adopted also in other European regions. A number of best practices have been identified and presented at Regional stakeholder meetings held in Poland, Slovenia and United Kingdom.
