CIVITAS ARCHIMEDES consists of an ambitious blend of policy tools that introduces innovative, integrated and ambitious strategies for clean, energy-efficient, sustainable urban transport and thereby have a significant impact on policies concerning energy, transport, and environmental sustainability.
Each of the six ARCHIMEDES cities is located in a different EU country including representatives from new European member states. Being small and medium-sized, they often lack the resources and leverage bigger cities have at their disposal. Yet, they are keen to demonstrate how they can still achieve the same objectives for clean and energy-efficient transport and sustainable development. They see innovative solutions as the key to success.
