LOW-CARB: Online Exploitation Workshop 25.06.2020

One of the leading goals of Interreg Central Europe’s low-carbon pillar is to ensure that low-carbon innovations and pilots that are trialed during their projects, are successfully transferred beyond pilot regions to the wider programme area. LOW-CARB’s diverse consortium was initially carefully selected with this in mind. In order to have a widespread reach after the project’s lifetime, it has strategically aligned itself with leapfrogging cities of low-carbon technologies and practices in Central Europe as well as established close connections with mobility networks and groups with the necessary skills and resources to disseminate the project’s accomplishments. To start the transferal process and help Central Europe transition to sustainable and low-carbon mobility, LOW-CARB held an online exploitation workshop as part of its most recent webinar series and Follower City Programme on 25th June 2020. About 40 mobility experts and EU funding professionals gathered to discuss how to [...]

COVID-19 SUMP practitioner briefing now online

Over the past few months, societies have been overwhelmed by a global crisis, which affected and disrupted mobility systems. In response to the COVID-19 crisis, cities and regions have had to adapt their mobility systems at an unprecedented rate and scale. To handle the challenges posed by the crisis, local authorities need guidance and support in navigating and adapting to new conditions and ensuring the sustainable mobility is prioritised in a shifting urban landscape. During such a crisis period that directly affects mobility, and where immediate action is required, SUMP could serve as the leading process for local and regional coordination of mobility measure implementation. In June, the CIVITAS SATELLITE project led the preparation of a COVID-19 SUMP Practitioner Briefing, now available online. The document was developed in cooperation with SATELLITE partners as well as the Handshake and SUMP PLUS projects over the course of several weeks. A rigorous review and stakeholder [...]
