Summary

The SUITS project is a four-year research and innovation action, intending to increase the capacity building of Local Authorities and transport stakeholders and to transfer learning to smaller sized cities, making them more effective and resilient to change in the judicious implementation of sustainable transport measures. The SUITS project developed a suite of learning materials (Capacity Building Program) for decision makers and planners in small and medium sized cities to address knowledge gaps and misconceptions related to urban planning measures and to the deployment of innovative mobility solutions and technologies. The learning materials were provided in webinars, as on-line documents and transmitted via workshops and multiplier events.

The aim of the Capacity Building Program (CBP) is to: (a) Increase the capacity of small-medium Local Authorities to develop and implement sustainable, inclusive, integrated and accessible transport strategies, policies, technologies, practices, procedures, tools, measures and intelligent transport systems that recognize the end-to-end travel experiences of all users and freight. (b) Support small-medium Local Authorities in developing SUMPs by transforming them into learning organizations (c) Make transport departments resilient and responsive to new challenges and changes.
