The main objective of the U-MOB LIFE project is the creation of a university network that facilitates the exchange and transfer of knowledge on good practices of sustainable mobility between European universities. This network will serve as a tool to reduce emissions thanks to the improvement of the mobility of the university community.
In this seventh meeting held in Valencia, some of the results of the project were reviewed to date: for example, the communication campaign for the launch of the Online Course on Sustainable Mobility for Universities in Spanish, English, Italian and Polish languages as well as the new incorporations of the new universities in the last 6 months. Currently there are around 70 universities from countries such as Spain, Italy, Germany, United Kingdom and Portugal, among others.
Other activities that came up as topics were the Update of each of the Mobility Plans of the Universities of the network that the project helps developing and the Dissemination activities to raise awareness of the importance of the sustainable mobility at the different network universities in the EU (do not miss any of the activities of the UMOB Project!). For instance, the Video Contest on Accessibility and Sustainable Mobility in Italian Universities is already on its way. Check all details in the link above.
The next meeting will take place in March of 2020 in Barcelona.
U-MOB LIFE is led by the environmental consultancy Novotec Consultores, S.A., and has the participation of Fundación Equipo Humano, as well as four leading European universities in the application of sustainable mobility practices: the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona, the Erasmus Universiteit of Rotterdam, the Università degli Studi de Bergamo and the Politechnika Krakowska.
U-MOB LIFE stands for “European Network for Sustainable Mobility in the University“, a five-year European project co-funded by the European Commission under the LIFE program. The project has been underway since July 2016 and runs until June 2021. It has a total budget of 1,329,427 €.
