Project title

INCONE60 – Inland Blue Transport Connector E60 

Project overview

The aim of the project is to develop a concept for the creation of an alternative transport route along the international waterway E60 and link it to a network of other inland waterways – E30, E40 and E70. The concept will include technical, economic and social aspects in order to achieve the best possible economic effects.

INCONE60 project activities are in line with provisions of the EUSBSR Strategy and target the international waterways (E30, E40, E60, and E70) development by capitalizing on the TEN-T core network corridors for better connectivity and accessibility of Baltic Sea Regions. The INCONE60 project also addresses objectives of the EUSBSR Action Plan to Connect the Region. In particular, the project will contribute to Action no.11 “To improve internal and external transport links.”

The INCONE60 project will be oriented towards improving access of local and regional areas to European and transnational waterways. The project activities will focus on innovative transport solutions in order to achieve future-oriented, high-quality and eco-friendly transport services for citizens and business stakeholders. Actions will be taken to improve internal and external transport links as well as increase efficiency. Moreover, actions within the project will promote ecological means of transport and innovative means of propulsion, thus contributing to the decarbonization of transport operations and mitigation of the environmental impact of transport systems.
