Partner's experience in the field of intermodale and sustainable transport

The experience acquired during previous European projects and in the organisation of regional programmes to better qualify Emilia Romagna will enable the staff that has to realise the actions of INTERMODAL project to collaborate closely with the other partners to reach the common objectives.

In particular, the deep knowledge of the littoral involved, of the problems related with the presence of millions of tourists only during the summer and of the necessity to contrast pollution, especially finding alternative solutions for a sustainable mobility system, is an important know how for the realisation of the activities of the project. Taking part to the TRC project (Fast and sustainable transport on the Adriatic littoral) in summer 2011 has allowed to acquire direct knowledge of the problems related with train transport and the train/bike intermodality.
