1 Corridor VII, the Danube Backbone of the EU-Strategy for the Danube Region EUSDR Otto Schwetz Counsellor of the Senate of the City of Vienna ret. President of PIANC Austria Chairman of the Pan-European Transport Corridor VII, the Danube Consultant TINA Vienna Urban Technologies & Strategies Ltd.

2 Major milestones in the policy process Revision of TEN T (Inclusion of Seaports, IWW and Terminals) 2004 Mayor revision of the TEN-T guidelines with the identification of 30 priority projects 2010/11 EU Policy review: Development of the Comparative Network and definition of a new Core Network

3 CORE NETWORK The core network, as a subset of the comprehensive network, shall be: - multimodal and coherent, spanning the entire Community; - include the main ports (gateways) and be made up of nodes and links of High European strategic importance; - be linked to corresponding infrastructures beyond EU member states; - reflect the main long-distance / international traffic flow patterns (existing / potential): relevant threshold volumes to take into account spatial particularities

4 CORE NETWORK The core network, as a subset of the Comprehensive network, shall be: - correspond to the long-term needs of the Community and remain stable over a reasonably long period. - allow investment needs and projects to be derived top-down (unlike the existing 30 priority projects). - comprise, along and in context with its geographical part, (on the same strategic level) also a conceptual pillar : addressing non-geographical infrastructure-related measures, resulting from objectives established on Community level.
