Contract signed for new project SUMPs-Up


SUMPS-Up is the European Programme for accelerating the take up of Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans.

An experienced consortium of public and private organisations, including four major city networks and seven frontrunner cities, skilled in coordinating major European SUMP projects aim to accelerate the take-up of SUMPs, where this is currently low, ensuring that SUMP is the primary mobility planning concept in Europe. The project combines comprehensive SUMP research, tailored capacity-building, strong mechanisms for validating SUMP methods and practices, as well as constant SUMP monitoring and evaluation. SUMPs-Up will review, strengthen and integrate existing SUMP resources, designing a support system to assist cities to develop high quality SUMPs. A SUMP Tool Inventory will help mobility planners make better informed decisions about which planning tools to apply in their local context. This will be enriched with experiences from the city partners who will be testing innovative solutions in SUMP preparation and implementation. In addition, a €1 million Innovation Pilot Pool will enable SUMPS-Up to identify and validate the most effective concepts, approaches and methodologies in SUMP practice. The project will start in September 2016.
