CONNECT2CE, financed within the Central Europe Programme, aims at tackling the weak accessibility of regional, peripheral and cross-border areas of Central Europe to/from the main regional/national/EU transport networks and hubs. Three amin activities will be developed: 

1) Connectivity (PSOs/PSCs, harmonisation of multimodal timetables, regional and cross-border rail services);

2) Integrated ticketing and tariff schemes (integration of regional and cross border multimodal tickets will be tested and implemented for the first time);

3) Implementation of the most efficient and innovative ICT tools on info-mobility.

This approach will be applied in several pilot areas, thanks to the transnational strategies and action plans at regional and cross-border level.

What we do

Our research addresses the greatest challenges facing us in the future: people need health, energy, well-functioning political and social systems and an intact environment. These are complex questions, and we are seeking the answers in the interaction between many different disciplines. In so doing, our research work embraces three major themes: regions fit for living in, diversity as a life-enhancing feature, a healthy society.
