A common transport network for a common market – that’s the objective of the Trans-European Transport Network (TEN-T). Based on TEN-T, the EU infrastructure policy plans to connect all 28 Member States through a comprehensive, powerful and efficient European transport network. The implementation shall take place in two stages. By the year 2030, an efficient core network consisting of nine corridors shall connect the strategically important regions with each other. By 2050, the overall network will finally ensure access to all regions of the community of states.

URBAN NODE BERLIN-BRANDENBURG connects people, ideas and regions. In the German capital region of Berlin-Brandenburg, three of the nine trans-European core network corridors meet:

  • the Orient / East-Med Corridor as the connection of the German North Sea and Baltic Sea regions via Berlin to the Czech Republic – Slovakia – Hungary to the Black Sea (Bulgaria / Romania) and the Mediterranean Sea (Greece)
  • the North Sea – Baltic Sea corridor Bremerhaven / Rotterdam / Antwerp – Berlin – Warsaw – Terespol / Kaunas links the ports in Western Europe with terminals in Germany, Poland and Lithuania
  • the Scandinavian-Mediterranean Corridor as a north-south axis from Italy via Hamburg and Rostock to Scandinavia

This location provides the region a distinct role in the transport EU support policy. Sails have to be set for a common effective, reliable and sustainable transport system at European level. Already now, the regional potentials have to be identified and developed to ensure competitiveness and quality of life in the URBAN NODE BERLIN-BRANDENBURG (for the latest information on events, see Workshop II and Regional Conference) in the long term. The Capital Region of Germany “Connects people, ideas and regions”.
