Introduction to the Fruit Basket, project Output Library

The Baltic Sea Region (BSR) Programme 2007-2013 financed in total 90 transnational cooperation projects covering a wide scope of themes. In order to share the work done with you, the Programme has created this online basket of projects – a Fruit Basket if you will (formally called the Output Library).

The Fruit Basket may be used for diverse purposes. For example, when you have a specific challenge in your area with regard to transport, you may want to find out what has been done previously in that area and you will most likely find useful documents that would increase your knowledge in the specific topic. Take your pick!

Description:
Analysis enables regions/airports to improve intermodal connectivity giving the PP precise look on their strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats (SWOT) regarding current/future linkage of their airports with PTS. With the help of the analysis usage of PTS for accessing BSR airports can be increased; individual traffic lowered. So reductions of emissions of greenhouse gases per departing/arriving passenger can be achieved (ecological sustainability). Output is available on http://www.baltic-bird.eu/services/documents/category/55-results?download=423:swot-analysis-final-version.
