Sustainable development, infrastructure integration and competitiveness improvement efforts reflected through the EU transnational cooperation programmes have produced considerable results over the past decades. That is one of the reasons why the Members of the Adriatic Ionian Council (AIC), are convinced that the EU Strategy for the Adriatic and Ionian Region (EUSAIR) will give new impetus to the benefit of all involved. Effective investment in transport networks requires innovative approaches, linked to up-to-date research. One of expected outputs from the 2nd EUSAIR thematic pillar: Connecting the Region is to improve connectivity by creating reliable transport networks and intermodal connections with the hinterland. Multilevel and inter-sectorial working is the prerequisite to overcome not only huge infrastructure disparities in the Adriatic-Ionian (ADRION) region, but also to find solutions for recognized administrative and sectorial bottlenecks. This paper gives rationale and explores possibilities for development of Sustainable Multimodal Transport and Mobility Network in the Region in scope of the INTERREG European Territorial Cooperation ADRION programme 2014-2020 (ADRION Programme), Priority Axis 3: Connected region.
