CIVITAS is an initiative launched by the European Commission in 2002. Its main goal is to support cities to introduce ambitious transport measures and policies towards sustainable urban mobility. Its vision is to achieve a significant shift towards sustainable transport through both innovative technology and policy-based strategies.
“CIVITAS Forum 2019 – Back to the future” was the 17th annual conference on urban mobility. The conference always attracts the major European experts in the field of mobility, including but not limited to public administration, policymakers, academic researchers and industrial stakeholders. This edition, as the title suggests, focused on the acknowledgment of the progress done so far in sustainnable transport, but also on the necessity to foster innovation to advance multimodal, low-carbon, accessible urban mobility.
Francesc Rosinés presented HARMONY as a new H2020 project within CIVITAS during the CIVITAS Clusters Meeting on 2nd October. This was the occasion to meet our colleagues across Europe and create synergies with them towards the same goal of sustainable urban mobility. Also, ENIDE represented HARMONY in Session 21 on 3rd October: “Beyond boundaries: improving mobility across the wider urban area” to explain how the project will improve mobility across the wider metropolitan area. Additionally, Francesc Rosinés explained the H2020 project “Clusters 2.0” during Session “Freight and logistics cooperation platforms and solutions”.
ENIDE is leading both CLusters 2.0 and HARMONY communication and dissemination activities. Therefore, our team took the opportunity to explain how our projects are paving the way to a sustainable, inclusive and advanced mobility and logistics to the leading transport planners and policy makers convened at CIVITAS.
