At the end of November - after four years - the CIVITAS DYN@MO project has come to an end. At this occasion, a document has been prepared summarising the activities within the various DYN@MO measures within each of the four DYN@MO cities (Aachen, Gdynia, Koprivnica and Palma de Mallorca) and providing policy recommendations based on the achievements within the project's 30 measures.
Structured on the basis of the project’s three technical work packages, with lessons learned drawn from the research and evaluation findings in the project, the document offers insights specific to each measure, with the aim of empowering local policy makers and technicians with similar ambitions to reproduce the measures.
Each of DYN@MO’s four cities implemented and developed a Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan (SUMP) within the project, and based on this, a set of related recommendations and lessons learned was compiled. The outcomes of each SUMP-related measure indicated the importance of sufficient support and involvement of key politicians and stakeholders, appropriate resources and data, and communication. Further measure-specific recommendations are elaborated for measures contributing to SUMPs.
Measures related to clean and energy efficient vehicles have results that emphasise the importance of leading by example and investing in renewable energies, as well as tips for including test phases as part of implementation.
The cities’ measures relating to the deployment of ICT and ITS yielded lessons on appropriate preparation and the importance of thorough integration of data and information into the new systems.
The document concludes with policy recommendations for EU policy-makers, drawing supporting examples from the measures described in the previous chapters. The value of funding is highlighted, and EU policy makers are advised to make a city’s adherence to an approved SUMP as one of the prerequisites to get national funding for implementing sustainable urban mobility measures.
