The aim of CIPTEC project is the improvement of Public Transport in European cities, the increase of its attractiveness (preferably at the lowest possible cost) and therefore the reduction of congestion and the creation of a human – friendly urban environment, with “ideas provided by us, for us! Ideas that move the world!”.
CAMP-sUmp project, implemented through Interreg Mediterranean Programme and co-financed by the European Regional Development Fund is 18-month long project that had been developed to improve sustainable urban mobility planning instruments with innovative strategies for University Campus mobility flows and their integration with the cities in MED Area, and to reduce the externalities and negative impacts on the urban context due to University Campus mobility and its mobility management and planning.
The European VeloCittà project brought together five cities that wanted to improve their existing bike sharing schemes (BSS). In London (UK), Krakow (PL), Burgos (SP), Padua (IT) and Szeged (HU) the performance of the BSS was enhanced through hand marketing campaigns tailored to certain target groups (e.g. students, residents, employees) and through improving organisational and financial aspects. Political involvement was a major element in the project too. The ultimate benefit of VeloCittà is that it provides inspiration and builds capacity and knowledge in local authorities and bike sharing stakeholders to boost the uptake of bike sharing. VeloCittà was a demonstration project co-funded by the Intelligent Energy Europe Programme of the European Commission. It had 11 project partners. It ran from March 2014 – February 2017.

GreenYourMove (GYM) is a European Research Project co-funded by LIFE, the EU financial instrument for the environment - LIFE14 ENV/GR/000611. GreenYourMove main objective is the development and promotion of a co-modal journey application to minimize GHG emission in Europe. GreenYourMove develops a multi-modal transport planner (both routing & ticketing system) considering all kinds of urban public transportation (urban and sub-urban buses, metro, tram, trolley, trains), where the user gets alternative routes combining more than one transport modes if necessary. The routes are the environmentally friendliest ones, since emissions are calculated for different scenarios.
The EU-funded project PASTA - Physical Activity Through Sustainable Transport Approaches - aims to connect transport and health by promoting active mobility in cities (i.e. walking and cycling) including in combination with public transport use) as an innovative way of integrating physical activity into our everyday lives.
CISMOB (Cooperative Information Platform for Low Carbon and Sustainable Mobility) promotes innovative ways to reduce carbon footprint and increase the sustainability of urban areas, by improving the efficiency in the use of urban transport infrastructures through Information and Communication Technologies (ICT).
The project MOBILITY4EU is working on developing a vision for a user-centered and cross-modal European transport system in 2030 and an action plan including a roadmap to implement that vision. All modes of transport for passengers and freight as well as a multitude of societal drivers are being taken into account.
SUNRISE stands for Sustainable Urban Neighbourhoods Research and Implementation Support in Europe. SUNRISE’s innovative approach lies in its concrete involvement of citizens, stakeholders and users throughout all phases of the innovation process, from the early identification of problems to the implementation of solutions and their evaluation. These solutions will be tested in six SUNRISE neighbourhoods in the cities of Bremen, Budapest, Jerusalem, Malmo, Southend-on-Sea and Thessaloniki through the so-called “neighbourhood mobility labs”. The neighbourhood mobility labs of the SUNRISE cities set down the foundation of the Sustainable Neighbourhood Mobility Planning (SNMP) which in turn builds on the Sustainable Urban Mobility Planning (SUMP) concept. The SNMP applies the transport measures and participatory approaches to the neighbourhood scale by working closely with local partners organisations and citizens.
LIFE ASPIRE (Advanced logistics platform with road pricing and access criteria to improve urban environment and mobility of goods), co-financed by the European Commission under the programme LIFE, aims at developing an innovative system useful to the city of Lucca by implementing a number of regulatory, organisational and operational measures. Three technological systems will be tested in Lucca urban area: a smart monitoring system for freight vehicles, within the RTZ, using RFID sensors; an innovative system for monitoring freight loading/unloading bays and a service of cargo-bike sharing dedicated to the logistics operators. The integrated management and control of these systems will be done through a dedicated platform, a device that will allow to manage freight urban mobility in a "smart" manner. From another point of view, the actions will update the current regulation introducing a new credit system encouraging sustainable behaviours and awarding virtuous freight transport operators. The demonstration activities in Lucca will be complemented by the replicability and transferability analysis of the implemented measures and services to the cities of Zadar (Croatia) and Stockholm (Sweden), taking into account the peculiarity of their different contexts. The identified solutions can be in fact widely transferred and applied to other urban contexts with similar characteristics and problems.
LIFE FOR SILVER COAST
Life for Silver Coast is a revolutionary system of sustainable mobility. It will interest Isola del Giglio, Monte Argentario and Orbetello. The project is based on the use of exclusively electrical and sharing vehicles that will make areas which are not currently reached by public transport, accessible especially to tourists. The elements will communicate with each other through an info-mobility platform, a virtual place providing managers and users with information, allowing for the purchase of the tickets to use the services and allowing for the users to leave comments, photos and ideas concerning the new vehicles. Life for Silver Coast, thanks to the advice and proposals of experts and users, will be fully operative in the summer of 2019. The system includes a testing stage of about two years, at the end of which this service will be fully implemented and part of the local public transport.
