Please note: This tender is now closed. The results will be announced on 10 May 2017.

The CIVITAS DESTINATIONS project is launching a call for tender for a subcontractor to provide expertise on business model training and coaching activities as part of its implementation.

This call is open as of 31 March 2017 and it will remain open until the deadline for the submission of bids on 28 April 2017 (17:00 CET).

The ambition of the DESTINATIONS project is to extend and adapt as appropriate the CIVITAS initiative to tourist destinations in Europe. The project will implement a set of mutually reinforcing innovative mobility solutions in six urban laboratory areas with different sizes and characteristics: Funchal, Madeira, Portugal; Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, Spain; Limassol, Cyprus; La Valetta, Malta; Elba, Italy; and Rethymno, Greece, directly involving 1.2 million inhabitants and 6 million visitors.

The DESTINATIONS project aims to change the mind-sets of all stakeholders involved in managing the “mobility for growth” challenge and to demonstrate a set of solutions combining newly emerging technologies with policy-based and soft measures that have a strong replication potential. CIVITAS DESTINATIONS will test and evaluate ambitious integrated packages of smart measures for enhancing sustainable mobility in a specific context, one of island cities facing high tourist demand; will demonstrate that smart communities are able to combine innovation and planning to boost their ability to respond to the needs of travellers and residents for sustainable transport. Special attention will be paid to issues related to vulnerable groups of citizens as well as gender issues.
