MORE TEN-T Atlantic Corridor Workshop

Date: 08.10.19
Location: Lisbon, Portugal

The MORE TEN-T Atlantic Corridor Workshop will take place on 8th October 2019 in Lisbon, Portugal, ahead of the second MORE Project Meeting, from 13.00 to 18.00.

The meeting venue is Lisbon’s City Hall: Paços do Concelho (Sala do Arquivo), Praça do Município.

What is the MORE TEN-T Atlantic Corridor Workshop?

It will be the first of a series of MORE TEN-T Corridor workshops, one per each city partner, aiming to address common challenges and solutions of the metropolitan areas (urban nodes) placed on the same TEN-T corridor.

After an introduction to the MORE Project, the focus of the discussion will be the types of problems experienced by cities along their TEN-T “feeder routes” (from the TEN-T network into the city centres) and the interfaces between urban and inter-urban networks, and the types of solutions they are developing. The MORE partners will introduce the four tools that are being developed to assist cities in planning, designing, managing and operating these feeder routes and interfaces. The cities along the Atlantic corridor will be invited to provide their feedback on the potential usefulness of these tools, and the future challenges that should be addressed.

A further objective of the workshop is to establish a synergy between the MORE project and VitalNodes, a 2-year H2020 project that will come to an end in October 2019 and aims at delivering evidence-based recommendations for the integration of urban nodes into the TEN-T network.
