SOLUTIONS – Sharing Opportunities for Low Carbon Urban Transportation


SOLUTIONS – Sharing Opportunities for Low Carbon Urban Transportation

SOLUTIONS aims to support the exchange on innovative and green urban mobility solutions between cities from Europe, Asia, Latin America and the Mediterranean.

Published on

Transport is a key enabler of economic activity and social connectivity.While providing essential services to society, transport is also an important part of the economy and it is at the core of a number of major sustainability challenges, such as climate change, air quality, safety, energy, security and efficiency in the use of resources (EC 2011: Transport White Paper).

The overall mission of SOLUTIONS is to support the up-take of innovative sustainable urban mobility solutions in Europe and other regions in the world, in particular in Asia, Latin America and the Mediterranean. SOLUTIONS aims to bridge the “implementation gap” between the potential of innovative sustainable mobility and transport solutions and packages of solutions and the actual level of up-take and quality of the deployment mechanisms.

SOLUTIONS will focus on testing the transferability of innovative sustainable mobility solutions around six thematic clusters:

  1. public transport;
  2. transport infrastructure;
  3. city logistics;
  4. integrated planning and sustainable urban mobility plans;
  5. network and mobility management;
  6. clean vehicles. SOLUTIONS as a coordinating action will build strongly on previous and on-going projects and initiatives.
