The overall mission of this project was to support the uptake of innovative sustainable urban mobility solutions in Europe and other regions in the world, in particular in Asia, Latin America and the Mediterranean.
SOLUTIONS - Sharing Opportunities for Low Carbon Urban TransporTION
SOLUTIONS' overall objective was to make a substantial contribution to the uptake of innovative sustainable mobility solutions in cities across the world by:
SOLUTIONS addressed a variety of regions, i.e. the Mediterranean, Asia (in particular China and Singapore) and Latin America. SOLUTIONS brought together some of the leading experts and city networks from these regions, aiming to foster knowledge exchange and boost the uptake of innovative sustainable urban mobility solutions through the further exploitation of existing knowledge, focusing primarily on policy and the assessment of implementation processes.
Building upon previous experience in Europe, China, Singapore and Latin America, as well as the experience gained during the various phases of this project, the SOLUTIONS transferability guidelines aimed to bring about detailed steps towards the uptake of innovative sustainable urban mobility solutions and technologies in Europe and beyond.
The cities selected for the various phases of this project represented a range of comparable urban environments in the target regions. The focus was less on mega-cities and more on second-tier cities, aiming in that way to achieve a high level of transferability.
The regions addressed in this project presented different levels of maturity in terms of experience with sustainable urban mobility related actions. This was addressed by adopting different approaches to these regions.
SOLUTIONS focused on testing the transferability of innovative sustainable mobility solutions around six thematic clusters
SOLUTIONS aimed at the following results:
Rupprecht Consult supported the SOLUTIONS coordinator as scientific and technical manager, (work package 6) and led the horizontal cluster on sustainable urban mobility planning (SUMP).
