Together with initiatives of ELTIS and the European Mobility Week, CIVITAS is part of the EU policy on urban mobility as a key flagship encouraging innovation at local level.
Since 2002 it acts as an open platform that facilitates research, the uptake of innovative solutions, the validation of research results, the exchange of knowledge and best practices, and common learning in the area of urban mobility and transport. The project selected under this topic will help to ensure the long-term support for the CIVITAS projects offering governance, and an organisational and logistical framework that guarantees the wide dissemination and take up of urban mobility project results.
Proposals should aim at focusing activities on communication and event organisation and coordination of living lab activities continuing and enhancing the operation of the platform, to facilitate the continued coordination and knowledge exchange between the urban mobility projects that have been, or that will be funded under the CIVITAS initiative. These projects will deliver solutions that help achieve climate neutrality in cities, covering both personal mobility and goods/urban logistics using all transport modes.
Proposals should aim at putting in place a common communication and dissemination strategy to maximise the impact of the CIVITAS initiative. Proposals should ensure the monitoring of activities, events and results of the urban mobility projects and communicate about their progress and achievements. Applicants should also consolidate the common ‘CIVITAS Process and Impact Evaluation Framework’ and ensure the continuity of the CIVINETs. They should ensure continuity and provide a smooth transition from the previous Coordination and Support Action, CIVITAS ELEVATE.
