    Abstract

    Since their introduction in 2013, the TEN-T core network corridors (CNCs) comprise the main implementation instrument for the EU transport infrastructure policy. In addition to three CNCs that cross the Baltic Sea Region, a number of bottom-up corridor projects have proliferated in this area. Most of these projects perceive transport corridors as a vehicle for strengthening economic and social cohesion and development through the promotion of cross-border trans-regional cooperation. In doing so, they have developed a number of different stakeholder cooperation schemes. Drawing on desk research and a series of interviews, the paper reviews the stakeholder management schemes that past corridor projects have designed, implemented or tested and maps the decisionmaking processes concerning stakeholder involvement. Special emphasis is placed on the engagement of businesses (manufacturing, transport and logistics industry) and the so-called lighter-weight players (smaller and rural regions/municipalities, NGOs and SMEs), which have been diagnosed as the least active in the CNC work.
