CIVITAS National Networks (CIVINETs)
CIVINETs are networks of cities and relevant institutions promoting the CIVITAS approach, and to strengthen the local, regional and national capacity around sustainable urban mobility.
Differentiated by region and clustered by language, CIVINET members work together to engage at both European and national levels on transport policy, legislation and funding. CIVINETs work independently but also cooperate with each other to share learning and experiences on sustainable urban mobility.
In this regard, the 11 CIVINETs
- Act as ambassadors of the European mobility policy and convey the EU and EC messages, or translate the EU policy at and for local, regional and national stakeholders.
- Collect inputs from their members on the challenges that they face when putting in practice EU urban mobility policy or programmes.
- Bridge with the CIVITAS Research and Innovation projects and their results and facilitate the take-up and replication of these project results in the language-based area of the respective CIVINET.
The CIVINETs have had the opportunity to apply annually to receive funding to pursue their activities from the CIVINET Annual Plan.
