|PRIORITY 2 :
This priority aims to secure fair access to transport,
information and communication and knowledge infrastructure in all NWE regions
while curbing congestion and promoting a more sustainable mobility pattern.
For this purpose, good connections between transport networks
(interoperability and multimodality) are key, as well as the promotion of
environmentally-friendly transport means (in particular rail and waterways), but
this should be accompanied by strategies that seek to limit/discourage
The NWE programme also addresses the Information Society. A
significant priority will be to promote all types of IT-based networks, services
and applications with territorial relevance and to contribute to a universal
service in currently less well-equipped regions.

Other Examples of possible projects
Transport network operators could co-operate with each other
and other key-players to improve the speed, pace and safety of freight rail
traffic on a transnational axis (e.g. the development of new freeways or
An IT-based network of NWE universities may create a
distance-learning International Virtual Faculty where students benefit
in a multi-cultural environment from lessons and tutorship provided by a
transnational pool of professors.
