Hanse Congress 2018


Overlapping with the 800th jubilee of the Hanseatic City of Rostock, the international Hanseatic Day (Hansetag Rostock 2018) took place from 21st to 24th June 2018. Among many events, the Hanse Congress 2018, an international economic congress, was organised.

Entrepreneurs and scientists from Rostock, Mecklenburg-Vorpommern and European Hanseatic cities were invited to participate. HIE-RO took the opportunity to present the Interconnect project.

The idea pitching event was split into 7 cross-industry topics (life science, logistics, tourism economy, renewable energy, food & agriculture, creative industries and maritime economy) and 7 parallel lectures, limited to 800 seconds per lecture and 800 second discussion.

Participants of the Interconnect lecture engaged in the discussions about common ticketing systems and the issues of long distance / cross-border travels via public transport.


Interconnect, the project for “Better public transport services for regional and cross-border travels in the South Baltic area” is an EU Interreg South Baltic Programme flagship project and addresses the challenge of curbing the car-reliant mobility trend in the area.
