We dare to

To mark the launch of the CIVITAS e-publication "We dare to", an online peer-to-peer exchange event was organised. It featured the seven cities in the e-publication presenting their mobility measures in an interactive format. Six breakout rooms served as informal forums for discussing the measures with their respective cities.

Aachen and Madrid presented on e-mobility and public transport electrification; Bratislava and Sarajevo on public space re-allocation and tactical urbanism; Rethymno, Helsinki and Madrid smart solutions and smart planning; Aachen and Szeged on green mobility strategies with private companies; Bratislava, Sarajevo and Helsinki on boosting cycling with shared bicycle and cargo bike schemes; and Madrid and Rethymno on active modes and vulnerable road users.

CIVITAS e-course

The Urban Nodes e-course is about how to improve the efficiency of the transport system in an urban node of the Trans-European Transport (TEN-T) core network. Urban nodes are at the intersection of TEN-T infrastructure and urban infrastructure.

Across a total of six course units, it covers topics including the legal framework and policy context of urban nodes and TENT, a methodology for doing so, and the "why" and "what" of the integration.

CIVITAS e-course

This e-course is about regional cooperation in the field of mobility. Through a cooperative approach, there are mutual wins for individual cities and the region as a whole.

In this course, you will be introduced to regional cooperation approaches, with concrete examples and recommendations for overcoming governance, funding, or cooperation-related barriers. Multimedia examples such as video material help illustrate such approaches.

CIVITAS SUNRISE e-learning material

What is co-creation, and how can it be used to begin transforming our neighbourhoods into more vibrant, livable spaces for all people who live, move, shop, attend schools, relax in them?

From 2-30 September 2019, the European project CIVITAS SUNRISE offered an interactive, self-paced e-course for practitioners in city administrations, who wanted to initiate and coordinate a co-creative process in one of their neighbourhoods.

Participants had the opportunity to learn directly from SUNRISE’s experts, who walked them through the co-creation process, highlighting the tools and strategies that have been applied in the six SUNRISE Action Neighbourhoods in Bremen (DE), Budapest (HU), Jerusalem (IL), Malmö (SE), Southend-on-Sea (UK) and Thessaloniki (GR).

A series of exercises guided participants through the process of creating their own, locally specific co-creation action plan for a neighbourhood of their choice. They were also able to discuss with other e-course participants through an interactive forum under the moderation of SUNRISE experts.

The e-course was free of charge and the seven units are now available here:

SUITS Webinars

The SUITS webinar "on data management and exploitation for sustainable urban mobility", will advocate crowdsourcing as a sustainable and low-cost method to acquire mobility data and it will present a data modeling approach to minimise traffic delays. The webinar will also discuss approaches to effectively handle the potential for "big data" that may result from the proposed data collection methodologies.

The webinar will take place on 05 May 2020, at 2pm (CET).   

The detailed agenda can be downloaded here

Please note that prior registration for the webinar is essential. Register now!

Developing public policy for SUMP implementation, that balances the needs of citizen mobility with urban freight logistics and land-use conflicts, requires extensive traffic data collection and traffic monitoring. Only through the close and continuous monitoring of such a complex system (in a sustainable way) can this system be improved and the effectiveness of public policies be properly assessed.

This webinar will present tools and methodologies for the collection, modeling, management and exploitation of urban mobility data that can maximise the effectiveness and sustainability of urban transport measures and policies. The webinar is targeted at local authorities (mainly transport and mobility departments), as well as researchers and other stakeholders, whose work focuses on urban mobility planning, optimisation and policy-making.

The webinar will be moderated by Frederic Rudolph, project coordinator at the Wuppertal Institute. Speakers are:

  • Dr. Fotis Liotopoulos, Computer Engineer and General Manager of SBOING.
  • Dr. Liotopoulos will present a web-based tool for the selection and extraction of global user mobility traces (GPX files) from a database of over half a million traces. The tool, MyPolisLive.net is a web platform for real-time and historical urban traffic monitoring. The results of a pilot implementation of urban traffic monitoring through crowdsourcing, using MyPolisLive.net, in the city of Kalamaria (Greece).
  • Dr. Miriam Pirra, Researcher at Politecnico di Torino will provide concrete examples of how it is possible to exploit data collected using such tools at the municipality level. She will focus on the results of a pilot study in the city of Turin to show benefits and applicability of the data collection tools in the development of transport measures in European cities.
  • Mr. Csaba Matrahazi, Software Developer at LogDrill Ltd., Hungary is doing research and development projects by providing R&D background and documentation mainly in SCRUM. His main technologies are HTML5, CSS, JS, PHP, Python, C#, Git, GitHub, and Jira.

The webinar will be complemented by an e-learning course.  More information about the e-learning course will follow soon.

CIVITAS SUMPs-Up eCourses

The last e-course in the SUMPs-Up series offers information and guidance on financing and procuring SUMP measures.

The course will look at different funding and financing options for SUMP implementation from local revenue streams to regional and national funding sources and other sources.

It will also suggest ways to involve private sector more actively in the SUMP implementation. This helps to prepare financial plans for all actions.

The course includes a variety of concrete examples from European cities to finance mobility measures. The course also introduces the principles for sustainable public procurement and offers examples on procuring innovative mobility solutions.

After completing this course, you should be ready for financing and procuring sustainable urban mobility measures.

CIVITAS SUMPs-Up eCourses

Measure selection and packaging are highly important parts of the overall process of developing a SUMP. Mobility policies and measures are at the heart of the planning approach of sustainable urban mobility planning.

The fourth SUMPs-Up e-course will help planners and decision makers consider where to start the measures selection process and gives advice how to determine the baseline by reviewing already existing measures as well as the current status of the transport system.

The course will also recommend methods to thin out a long list of measures to address city’s vision and targets.  After completing this lesson, now you should know the basis of measure selection in a SUMP context as well as some assessment methods to structure your measure selection.

CIVITAS SUMPs-Up eCourses

SUMP measures will help planners and decision makers prioritise and rate measures selected in previous phases in order to identify measures that are effective and feasible for the city.

The course will introduce an assessment method for packaging measures and a way to conduct impact assessment for the selected measures. It also suggests how to use scenario building as a means of measure assessment.

After completing this course, now you should know the basis of prioritising measures which includes rating, prioritising and packaging of measures.

CIVITAS SUMPs-Up eCourses

Many cities struggle with implementing their SUMP. This course explains the foundations of how planning authorities can overcome the barriers and how action planning is key to achieve this.

It also helps planners and decision describe and gain approval for selected measures and break the measures into actions and plan the implementation in more detail. The course will also address other crucial success factor in the SUMP process – monitoring and evaluation.

Monitoring and evaluation both the of the planning process and the measure implementation are crucial to the effectiveness of a SUMP.

Lastly, the course will give tips for managing the implementation process to ensure good coordination among all parties involved.
