Key messages on clean fuel deployment

Our factsheet spells out key messages on what needs to be one to accelerate the transition towards climate-neutral mobility. It is based on an analysis of current developments in markets, infrastructure and incentives for clean fuel vehicles in the northern Scandria®Corridor.

Scandria®Alliance position paper in the TEN-T revision process in 2021

The members of the Scandria®Alliance have developed a joint position during the consultation process of the revised TEN-T guidelines in early 2021. Their position paper focuses on urban nodes, multimodal transport chains, a multi-fuel approach, cross-border railway connections and governance issues.


Our members are engaged in multiple innovative projects,
advancing our common aim to connect regions, communities and economies
through clean and smart transportation.

Scandria Alliance Talk on urban logistics & the mobility transition, 21 June 2024

In this #ScandriaAllianceTalk, you will learn about some promising projects in which cities and regions along the Scandria Corridor are piloting solutions that can actually help to reduce or replace road-based transport in urban logistics. These solutions include open system multi-use locker systems, micro hubs, light electric vehicles and urban inland shipping.

• MoLo Hubs – Parcel lockers for distribution and waste collection in Aalborg
• City logistics by boat – the cooperation of Berlin and DHL
• URBANE – Upscaling Innovative Green Urban Logistics Solutions in Bologna


Scandria Alliance Talk on urban air mobility, 29 April 2024

In the second #ScandriaAllianceTalk webinar, you will learn the basics of urban air mobility through the experiences and examples from the city of Helsinki in Finland and EU-funded projects AirMOUR and CityAM. You will also have the possibility to hear and discuss what urban air mobility means to cities and what cities should take into account in planning of urban air mobility.

• What is urban air mobility and U-space? How do they affect cities?
• Urban air mobility – approach and plans in city of Helsinki
• EU projects to advance urban air mobility understanding and tools: experiences from AiRMOUR and CityAM


Planning Urban and Trans-European Mobility together, 22–23 April 2024

The MOVE21 project invites European cities designated as urban nodes in the new TEN-T regulation and mobility professionals to discuss What collaborative efforts are essential along transport corridors to enhance connectivity within and between urban nodes.

The Scandria®Alliance will be represented in an expert workshop on regional collaboration models in practice. During the workshop, participants will discuss how enhanced multi-level collaboration can enable more seamless integration of urban nodes within the TEN-T.


Moving Europe to the next decade, 3 April 2024
