Associated organisations

In the preparation phase TransBaltic won support from 30 organisations, which expressed interest in pursuing the project implementation on a voluntary basis. Among them are:

  • transport ministries from seven Baltic Sea countries (Belarus, Estonia, Germany, Lithuania, Norway, Poland and Sweden) and Finnish Maritime Administration;
  • eight organisations from Russia (government of the Kaliningrad Region, City of St. Petersburg, North-West Association of the Eleven Federal Subjects of the Russian Federation, City of Baltijsk, Baltic Fishing Fleet State Academy, North-West Academy of Public Administration, International Centre for Social and Economic Research – Leontief Centre, and International Transport Academy);
  • seven pan-Baltic organisations (Baltic Sea Commission of CMPR, North Sea Commission of CPMR, Baltic Sea States Subregional Co-operation, Baltic Development Forum, Baltic Sea Chambers of Commerce Association, Baltic Sea Forum and Baltic Ports Organization), which are engaged in a dialogue with state governments on transport and regional development issues;
  • Lithuanian Intermodal Transport Technology Platform (a representative network of main transport business, research and governmental institutions dealing with Lithuania’s policy making in transport and logistics);
  • regional authorities and their associations interested in contributing to the project objectives (South Finland Regional Alliance; Norrbotten County Council, Sweden; Baltic Link Association, Sweden, and Nordland County Council, Norway);
  • a private enterprise of DHL Exel Supply Chain Oy, Finland.

TransBaltic aspires to regard those associated organisations as discussion, dissemination and reference partners to the project. They will be asked to provide a political backup to the project work, consult project findings and assist in reaching out for a wide representation of public and private stakeholders around the Baltic Sea, including the business sector, in debating on the results. They will also be approched to discuss follow-up actions and investments resulting from the project recommendations.

An essential role in the project implementation is ascribed to associated organisations from Russia and Belarus. Disallowed direct co-finding from the Baltic Sea Region Programme 2007-2013, they are expected to provide expertise on transport development trends and policies in these two countries as well as to support the project in making the implementation results representable for the whole Baltic Sea Region.

TransBaltic invites further stakeholders, interested in the project work, to become associated organisations.
