RUTH will capitalize outputs and results of Adrimob. RUTH will transfer the lessons learnt from the pilot activities implemented in ADRIMOB for the completion of cross-modal circuits in different parts of coastal Adriatic areas and will carry out the feasibility study for the completion of the multimodal circuit through interconnecting port and inland infrastructure in the target regions. Further initiatives can be implemented after the project end, through regional policy and other financial instruments, ensuring the long term impact on the Region.
Moreover, thanks to its experience in the management of cooperation projects, RUTH will bring into the consortium its know-how in cooperation projects.
RU of Thesprotia, as a coastal regional authority is competent in planning and implementing initiatives in the field of multimodal mobility and marine sector of the Region. The issue of mobility in the area of Thesprotia involves many organizations, such as the port organization, the organization of the interurban busses and the municipalities.
