Poly5 project partners are currently engaged in the discussion around the general assumption that the provision and realization of major transport infrastructures generates deep impacts on the interested territories which imply to address highly problematic decisions and processes that occur before, during and after these realizations.

Poly5 project has therefore undertaken a deep analysis aimed at collecting data describing the situation (present situation and future scenarios) of the most critical areas interested by the railway tracks (existing and planned) of the Corridor 5 infrastructure. Project partners have cooperated in filling a survey with data regarding the description of the involved areas, the major features of the ongoing projects linked to this major transport infrastructure, and finally the decisional processes involved in its construction. At the same time, the survey has focused on envisaged effects that the new infrastructures may produce on the involved territories.

The survey has produced a common knowledge on the involved areas interested by Corridor 5, supported by a set of indicators and cartography defining spatial resources – connected values and risks - of the Alpine territories, picturing the mobility and infrastructural situation, the advancement of Corridor 5 related projects, and the processes and resources involved in its realization. The partnership is also working on an ICT platform, the Spatial Platform for Knowledge Management, which will perform the tasks of collecting required information, feeding them back as strategy, scenario and vision analyses that will be available to partners and other end users.

Scenarios, visions and strategies are intermediate frameworks able to act as a connection between the higher decision-making level and the local interests, allowing new knowledge to emerge and to increase the possibility of finding new solutions to problems.
