Regional Mobility beyond TEN-T
The online convention on Regional Mobility beyond TEN-T is the final event of the Peripheral Access Project and sheds light on practical examples of developing regional public transport in a way so that all inhabitants can benefit from the optimized TEN-T infrastructure, no matter where they live. 

The European Green Deal, as communicated by the European Commission in December 2019, strives to achieve sustainable transport by putting users first and providing them with more affordable, accessible, healthier, and cleaner alternatives to their current mobility habits.
But how can users be put first in practice? By which means can the attractiveness of public transport really be raised? And where does this shift have to take place - first and foremost in urban areas, rural areas, or both?

EUCLID – EU-CHINA Lever for IPM Demonstration – is an Horizon 2020 Project aimed at securing food production for the increasing worldwide population (2015-2019). EUCLID has developed sustainable production methodologies to fight pests with an Integrated Pest Management approach, to be used in European and Chinese agriculture.

A list of Policy Recommendations is produced as one of the key outcomes of the project. It stems from directly engaging and confronting with national, international and EU authorities to understand how policy can support the development of IPM measures and the uptake of IPM products in the market.
