FORTIS

Strengthening institutional cooperation in the cross-border area through innovative solutions in public transport and civil motorization procedures
Priority Axis 4
Enhancing capacity building and cross-border governance
Specific Objective: 
OS 4.1.
Investment Priority: 
PI 11CTE
Typology: 
Standard
Overall Objective of the Project: 

The FORTIS project intends to promote institutional cooperation through joint innovative solutions for citizenship aimed, on the one hand, at improving and promoting cross-border public transport services in favor of sustainable and efficient mobility, on the other, promoting the exchange of experiences and harmonization of the civil motorisation procedures.

Project summary: 

One of the main reasons limiting the harmonization of services and legislation in the cross-border area is the lack of cooperation and institutional dialogue between the main regional stakeholders. As a consequence, citizens of border areas experiment daily difficulties in accessing public services and in managing their administrative practices. To this end, the FORTIS project intends to identify innovative solutions to facilitate lives of citizens of cross-border areas and to promote institutional dialogue, through: the improvement of local public transport systems with a view to cross-border integration and exchange of good administrative practices in relation to different civil motorization legislation. Following a gap analysis, specific pilot actions will test experimental solutions to improve services and dialogue, allowing the establishment of a stable institutional cooperation network.

Main results: 

The FORTIS project will first develop an (1) action plan to optimize public transport connections in the cross-border area and to promote institutional dialogue for mutual knowledge of vehicle registration procedures. Then, it will (2) define and implement pilot activities to assess the proposed innovative solutions. Institutions involved, together with the key operators, will thus be able to support cross-border mobility through a (3) memorandum of understanding with the aim of extending and maintaining the tested initiatives. On the other hand, the competent authorities will acquire (4) mutual knowledge of the procedures relating to civil motorisation, which will be collected in a toolbox made available to citizens. The cooperation network established within the FORTIS project will be confirmed and maintained beyond the duration of the project thanks to the signature of (5) a further memorandum of understanding.
