The CIVITAS SUMPs-Up project has extended its call for cities to take part in its next SUMP Learning Programme (SLP).

Up to 25 planning authorities have the chance to join SLP5, which will start in May 2019. This group of mobility practitioners will complete the Expert Group of 90 SUMP cities.

Programme format and content

The six-month SLP module combines knowledge transfer and testing and assessment with learning on concepts, approaches, tools, and methodologies for Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan (SUMP) development.

The activities blend online and face-to-face learning and exchange. Participants also benefit from one city-to-city review and a one-to-one support session from SUMPs-Up mobility experts.

SLP 5 will focus on SUMP implementation, financing and procurement. Activities will include writing and reviewing a SUMP action plan, monitoring and evaluating the impact of measures, procuring services, and identifying new challenges.

Who should apply?

SUMPs-Up is seeking mobility and transport professionals active in local or regional transport planning authorities that have experience in sustainable mobility planning. Cities that are currently elaborating their first SUMP are also encouraged to apply.

Alongside urban or regional authorities, local consortiums containing such an authority can also apply. All applicants must be based in a Member State of the European Union, a country in the European Economic Area (see here) or an associated country of the Horizon 2020 programme (see here).

The full eligibility criteria can be found in the call document, which is linked below.
