Many innovative ideas have been developed in the city since Tallinn became part of the CIVITAS family and many new contacts have been made with other European cities and transport related organisations. Implementing the SMILE measures in Tallinn has improved our skills and knowledge of European projects and motivated us to prepare a project proposal for the CIVITAS Plus call.

Fruitful cooperation between Tallinn and Malmö started whilst preparing the SMILE proposal for CIVITAS II and this has continued throughout the implementation period. Malmö and Norwich as leading cities have provided know-how and support to Tallinn and its local partners by organising numerous training events and site visits.Tallinn and Malmö are implementing two similar measures under the Telematics work package. The City of Tallinn had the opportunity learn from Malmö’s experiences as Malmö launched their tender of priority system earlier than Tallinn and in April 2006, a delegation of local Tallinn partners attended a one-day training session organised by Malmö city officials and Swedish PT operator Skanetraffiken. The subject of this session was tendering procedure and defining terms of references for PT priority system. In June 2006 the City of Malmö organised a Mobility Management training where 15 representatives participated in order to gain valuable experience to plan and implement Mobility Management measures in the future. In December 2006, a Malmö organised another training session on the subject of Clean vehicles that was attended by three representatives from Tallinn. Tallinn has also had good cooperation with Norwich, whose measures are a good example to follow in the future. In December 2007 three representatives from the City of Tallinn participated in the Freight Training & Thematic Leadership training session organised by Norwich.
