The Scan-Med Observatory will serve as a test bed to identify and promote new forms of governance cooperation and innovation on TEN-T corridor level for urban nodes. The Scan-med Observatory is an ecosystem for governance coordination and data and knowledge sharing in the TEN-T Scan-Med corridor, reaching out to cities, regions and other relevant stakeholders, and building on the legacy and recommendations of the VitalNodes project (H2020).
The Observatory promotes coherent set of actions that facilitate institutional networking at TEN-T corridor level and encourage common funding mechanisms and joint systems components between cities and regions. The Scan-Med Observatory proactively seeks to cooperate with the Ideas Laboratories pioneered by the Scan-Med Corridor coordinator and the STRING network. MOVE21 actively promotes this model of organising urban nodes, and welcomes replication efforts on other TEN-T corridors beyond the Scan-Med corridor.
The activities related to the Scan-Med Observatory are going to start in May 2022 and continuing till the project end. Two deliverables are foreseen:
- Scan-Med Observatory Framework Plan.
This deliverable sets out to define the preliminary organisation and the activities of the Scan-Med Observatory and guidelines on how the organisational model can be replicated on other TEN-T corridors.
- Scan-Med Observatory Action Plan.
It defines the vision, strategy and set of actions required to establish the Observatory as a permanent community and body.
