The SubNodes project was born by the notion that many regions are seeking solutions for adapting  their secondary transport network to an upgraded or new TEN-T node within or close to their territories.

Rooted in the Territorial Agenda 2020, SubNodes presents a strategic approach to promote the polycentric development in the public transport sector in light of changing settlement patterns and locational advantages due to major investments in TEN-T. 

SubNodes concentrates on tackling the weak intermodal integration of peri-urban hinterland regions to primary TEN-T hubs. Suitable medium-sized cities in the central Europe area shall be developed into attractive intermodal secondary hubs, which better connect the hinterland to the TEN-T rail network. The project intends to establish this approach by adopting a SubNodes strategy, by conceptualising its implementation and by testing innovative actions in real conditions. Policy recommendations derived from this process will be integrated into transport plans of the regions.
