The newest CIVITAS project, RECIPROCITY, or ‘Replication of innovative concepts for peri-urban, rural or inner-city mobility’, is helping cities transform into climate-resilient and connected multimodal nodes for smart and clean mobility.
To achieve this, it will initiate and support replication projects in at least twenty cities and municipalities varying in size, location, degree of urbanisation and mobility demand.
Each will be equipped with the tools, knowledge and contacts needed to accelerate the process of replicating existing innovative mobility solutions. RECIPROCITY involves 10 partners, including clusters and research institutions, from across Europe.
The project will employ a four-staged replication framework to help cities and municipalities:
- IDENTIFY the right innovative mobility solutions for all relevant mobility stakeholders and citizens
- LEARN about requirements, processes and skills needed to put these innovative mobility solutions into action
- ACCELERATE the implementation of these solutions through guidance and matchmaking for business and finance
- SHARE and build upon lessons learned to enable fast wide-scale replication.
