  • Establishment of new maritime links between Italian and Croatia (tourism oriented) urban centres;
  • Implementation of smal scall infrastructures (eg. charging station for electric vehicles, bike sharing sytems, etc.) according to the specific needs of each area involved.

Principal Results:

  • 10 new, eco-friendly multimodal transport services for passengers;
  • 1 new maritime link between Italy and Croatia (Caorle – Poreč);
  • 1 jointly developed Crossborder Manual for smart design and integration of soft mobility solutions in coastal areas.
