Second Partner Meeting held in Cork

The South West Regional Authority hosted the second partner meeting in June 2012. SWRA in its Regional Planning Guidelines recognises the important role that alternative and renewable energies play in the overall development of a sustainable strategy for the region. The BATTERIE project supports this strategy by identifying best practices in sustainable transportation and inter-modality.

First Partner meeting held in Belfast

In March of this year the partnership held its ‘kick-off’ meeting in Belfast, Northern Ireland. At the time, Belfast was celebrating 100 years since the launch of the famous Titanic liner. It was appropriate that 100 years after the luxurious liner was built and launched in Belfast, that the partnership was also celebrating the launch of a project about transportation, interoperability and intermodality. Ironically, despite all our advances, all of the problems around these issues still exist 100 years later. The good news is that the BATTERIE project is all about resolving them!
