Interporto Bologna has recently hosted a meeting of the EU project SPIDER PLUS*, which is co-financed by the European Commission within the FP7 research programme.
Consorzio IB Innovation (spin-off of the company Interporto Bologna Spa) took part in the meeting together with all the other project’s partners, in order to jointly discuss the first results achieved.
The SPIDER PLUS main objective is to deliver a passenger and freight mobility vision by 2050 encompassing seamless transportation where electrified High Speed Rail has a central role, supported by ICT and technological innovations and by a more effective combination of infrastructural nodes with spatial and urban planning to tackle current missing links in sustainable mobility and city logistics.
