Knowledge Basis for SUMP

Facilitating SUMP on the local level

  • Guidance for local SUMP processes and pilot innovations (e.g. in Bielefeld)
  • Integrated electromobility strategies (e.g. Rostock)
  • Quality control of SUMP development (e.g. Vienna)

International SUMP development

  • International cooperation on SUMP and National Urban Mobility Programmes (e.g. in SOLUTIONS)
  • Take-up of SUMP in countries with less developed SUMP capacities (e.g. Peru and Ukraine)

Integrated planning

Our Integrated Planning team is engaged in projects and activities that facilitate integrated planning practices towards more sustainable urban mobility. For over ten years we have been working in the area of Sustainable Urban Mobility Planning (SUMP) and have helped to create a strong showcase for a new planning culture for European cities and regions. Through several projects we have further developed this concept and have helped create a significant knowledge base that is freely available to practitioners, e.g. via the CH4LLENGE and SUMPs-UP projects or through the SUMP Self-Assessment tool.

SUMP also opens up the possibility for governance and planning processes to integrate the urban transport network into regional and upper-network levels such as the Trans European transport network (TEN-T) in order to ease the burden of traffic on urban areas and to improve connectivity.

Integrated planning approaches are also becoming more and more relevant for cities in emerging and developing countries, in order to tackle increasing motorisation and negative impacts of transport movements.  

Currently, we are engaged in the update of the European SUMP Guidelines and the developent of the next generation of SUMP.

The key thematic clusters within the “Integrated Planning” team are: Sustainable Urban Mobility Planning, Governance and stakeholder cooperation, Urban and regional planning, and development of Urban Nodes in the TEN-T, SUMP in developing and emerging countries.

Our services

  • Support in all aspects of Sustainable Urban Mobility Planning (SUMP)
  • Facilitation of integrated, cooperative and systematic planning in cities and regions
  • Strategic development of the transport network towards more sustainable urban mobility
  • Moderation of stakeholder cooperation and public participation
  • Monitoring and evaluation of mobility measures and pilot innovations
  • SUMP in developing and emerging countries
  • Integration of Urban Nodes in the Trans European transport network (TEN-T)
  • Research, fact finding, analysis, learning, exchange and promotion to support the above
