East-West Transport Corridor II The EWTC II project is a green corridor concept within the Northern Transport Axis approach. Through international cooperation, the aim of the project is to develop and work for efficient, safe and environmental friendly handling of the increasing amount of goods going east-west in the south Baltic Region and further to the Black Sea Region. The project will prepare stakeholders in the region to enhance sustainable transport planning and smart IT solutions in the field of transport. This in combination with business development in the transport sector will stimulate the economic growth in the entire East-West Transport Corridor. The EWTC II project will strengthen the multimodal transport with innovative railway concepts, will develop hubs as growth centres, improve accesses to hubs and increase human capabilities. Another activity is to develop an innovative testing ground for a green corridor concept that could serve as a best practise case in the European perspective. It includes deployment of advanced ITS services as well as development and testing of an information broker system. The project dedicates to various aspects of the green corridor development, resulting in a EWTC Green Corridor Action Plan. Wismar University is responsible for investigations of future business potentials along the East-West Transport Corridor. In a leading task the individual cases for hub development and sustainable multimodal transport solutions, especially Short Sea Shipping, are collected and presented as part of the EWTC Green Corridor Action Plan.
