CIVITAS PORTIS will test innovative and sustainable urban mobility solutions in five European port cities.

  • Improve governance for an enhanced cooperation between cities and ports 

  • Create more sustainable and healthier city-port environments 

  • Shape more integrated transport infrastructure and mobility systems 

  • Improve the efficiency of urban freight transport


The five living labs will implement mobility measures, supporting their multifunctional role of cities, ports and gateways to inland areas. The project aims to show that sustainable mobility can increase functional and social cohesion between city centres and ports, while pushing the economy forward and boosting the allure of modern urban environments.
