The regions and cities in the COINCO-corridor Oslo-Göteborg-Malmö-Copenhagen-Berlin have worked out a COINCO Strategy 2025 for becoming one of the world's most competitive regions. Behind this strategy is a political will to utilize mutual strengths and together become a leading player in a globalized world, based on common cultural, social and environmental values. The strategy comprises of a vision and more detailed aims within three different areas: Corridor Cooperation, Innovation and Infrastructure. In this way, the COINCO partners want to establish a political platform for transborder collaboration on matters essential to development - ‘hard' issues such as transport infrastructure and ‘soft' issues on improving cooperation within business, administration and knowledge production. Cooperation among COINCO businesses have to be institutionally supported. Therefore a number of knowledge institutions have to be ormed organized around the ‘triple helix'-principle - a tight collaboration between business, administration and knowledge producers, especially universities. Also new ways of collaboration have to be explored - ‘network governance' has to be developed to supplement traditional regulation. The synergy of COINCO will have to come fromcollaboration among businesses. Supporting cooperation between existing companies in the corridor, attracting innovative international companies, and supporting the creation of new knowledge intensive businesses is thus at the core of the strategy. New areas of collaboration will have to be identified systematically. Every company, every niversity, every institution has to take the global reality into account and reacting to it. To make COINCO a privileged area of cooperation depends on easy access within the corridor for people and for goods. Some of the existing infrastructure is of a high quality, but seen from a network perspective there is a need for improvements. This strategy proposal points at a high speed rail link through the corridor, well connected to the main airports. This would improve passenger transport efficiency and quality within as well as in and out of the corridor. Similarly an improved network for freight transport could be obtained by improving the rail connections between the terminals where the sea, road and rail transport systems
