Sustainable Mobility Planning in the Alpine Space

Rupprecht Consult presented the EU’s SUMP concept at the PUMAS Kick-off Meeting in Venice on 10/11 October 2012

PUMAS, one of the twelve projects approved in the last call of the INTERREG Alpine Space 2007-2013 programme, will review the current urban mobility planning methods in Venice, Torino, Vienna, Lyon, Munich and Nova Gorica and test and evaluate SUMP methods for developing and implementing regional mobility measures in the Alpine context. Follower cities becoming members of the Alpine SUMP Community will benefit from the PUMAS experience and familiarise their own planning departments with the SUMP approach. Thus, the reality check of the SUMP approach will be at the heart of the PUMAS project. At the transnational seminar on 20 and 21 January 2013 in Vienna, a key issue of the SUMP approach – the development of a vision for sustainable regional-urban mobility – will be discussed between experts of urban mobility planning and politicians and practitioners. Michael C. Laubenheimer was invited to the kick-off meeting to present the SUMP concept, methods and tools currently being developed with the Eltisplus project (<link http:>
