In a world of change, local authorities need to stay ahead the curve – though, it is harder for small and medium sized authorities to innovate, than their larger counterparts.

Current research has shown that capacity gaps in small – medium local authorities’ knowledge and work practices exist. These may have arisen due to a variety of reasons: government and economic cutbacks; re-organisation; changing technology (e.g. open data); new business entrants; shifts in mobility; changing expectations of citizens (greener transportation); and new directives (e.g. in terms of financing and procurement).

Significantly, these gaps impact at individual, organisational and institutional levels, all of which need to be recognised in a far-reaching capacity building programme capable of making transport departments resilient and responsive to new challenges.

The CIVITAS SUITS project research proves that investing in capacity building of local authorities in small- and medium-sized cites results in the fast and successful implementation of transport strategies and measures for green sustainable mobility. In this way, they are a vital step towards and part of successful SUMP implementation.

The SUITS consortium invites representatives from city authorities, local regional bodies, national and regional authorities, regulators, policy makers, civil society, the larger scientific community, transport industry, transport service providers, civil society, media representatives, research institutions and academics working in the fields of transport and sustainable mobility to discuss the challenges associated with the capacity building of small-medium cities.

This will help stimulate innovation in transport concepts and services through a citizen-oriented socio-economic approach.

Join us virtually to hear innovative results presented, particpate in vivid debates, and focus on realistic implementation of sustainable mobility measures in cities!
