Nordhessen, Hessen, Germany (partner in EU project)
Sintropher (Sustainable Integrated Tram-Based Transport Options for Peripheral European Regions) is about connecting better core areas with their more peripheral outlying regions.
The main aim is to assess and promote development of new or improved tram services, linked to national rail systems (and, where relevant, regional airports) as one way to improve access into and out of EU regions which are disadvantaged by reason of being geographically peripheral within the context of North West Europe. The emphasis is on sustainable, cost-effective solutions which make best use of existing transport infrastructure by applying innovative technologies - an important consideration in regions where the cost of major new transport infrastructure may be a barrier.
