The project was organized under the European Territorial Cooperation Programme Greece – Italy 2007-2013 "Investing in our Future" and co-funded by the European Union – European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) - and by National Funds Greece and Italy.
The consortium consisted of three participating municipalities: Igoumenitsa (the lead partner), Brindisi, and Gallipoli. The project aimed to ensure new ways of urban planning: urban traffic, environmental planning, and disaster management. Therefore, the project's objectives aimed to improve the quality of life of the municipalities involved, with a more significant rationalization of vehicular traffic, studying the strengths and problems, ensuring responses to environmental pollution, and strengthening cross-border cooperation. Each partner was in charge of implementing the TEIMS system in their region. Therefore, many tasks were similar for all partners: These tasks included conducting a developmental study for each area and the procurement and installation of the system.
In the framework of the project, the subproject entitled "Development and Operation of the ALIS" were implemented. The purpose of the subproject was to create the Alarm Alert Information System that generates alerts/alarms concerning traffic and the environmental situation in the areas of interest and disseminates alerts/warnings to operators of the three regions. The project has considered the specific socio-economic and development prospects of the Region of Epirus with a view to the medium to the long-term development of the wider region.
