The InTraRegio project is a coordination action that aims to enhance the integration process and the capacity of the five European regions Canary Islands (ES), Bremen (DE), Marmara (TR), Calabria (IT) and Ruse (BG) towards their development of regional RTD and economic policies and research strategies related to transport concerns, in particular to intermodal freight and passenger transport. Through mutual learning processes and collaborative relationships among regional research-driven clusters, represented by 18 partners coming from governmental, research and industrial side, a transnational strategy will be established, directed at developing the take up of innovative measures that spin towards new collaboration among regional players and address as a joint force transport-related issues.The project will be implemented during a 36 months period in three main consecutive and complementary phases while project management and dissemination will be horizontal activities: 1) Establishment of the institutional cluster framework. In-depth analysis of the regions’ state of play and Cross-regional Analysis of regional Research Agendas, detecting synergies and paving the way for concerted RTD activities and policy strategies, including SWOT analyses and Directory of RTD offer and demand;2) Joint RTD Strategy & Policy Formulation Event and building of the Joint Action Plan with integrated Business Plan;3) Mutual learning and mentoring through personnel exchanges/ trainings and transnational workshops, supporting the goals set in the Joint Action Plan and improving the European integration process.
