RoCK Final Conference

The RoCK project comes to a close
On 17 June 2015, the INTERREG IVB North West Europe RoCK (Regions of Connected Knowledge) project hosted a conference in Brussels under the banner "Breaking Barriers - Crossing Borders: Where do we stand after five years of open-market international rail passenger transport?"

Face-to-face contact is still a vital business requirement especiallly in the knowledge-based economy. A smooth circulation of knowledge workers needs a strong transport infrastructure - regardless of national borders. The ROCK-project develops international, interoperable and consumer-friendly rail services.

Twelve partners

The ROCK partnership consists of regional authorities, communities and transport companies from the Netherlands, France, Belgium, Germany and the UK. Together, they have the critical mass to boost passenger transportation at a high level of scale, both cross-border and transnational.

Cross-border railway connections

The ROCK projects realise transnational mobility measures that have a high impact at a rather small budget. They create missing links for cross-border railway connections, implement international integrated ticketing systems and establish mobile passenger travel information.

Project ended December 2015
