Modular projects’ elevator pitch: discover the latest developments of the Med Urban Transport Community projects

Here you will find the development of the projects of our community. Great work is being done towards cleaner and better transports in the Mediterranean area!

 

On 27 and 28 June, in Athens, a strategic meeting for CAMP-sUmp will take place, where the strategies to be undertaken to improve mobility in the Mediterranean area will be discussed.

During the meeting, the results of the studies carried out by the CAMP-sUmp project experts will be announced. An action plan for sustainable university mobility, a model for the use of new information technologies and new communication tools for transport services will be presented. This first phase of study and analysis carried out is particularly important prior to the adoption of an integrated multi-modal mobility system for universities combining service efficiency and environmental protection.

Representatives of local and European institutions will also participate in the meeting, which will take place at the Department of Transportation Engineering of the University of Athens.

The LOCATIONS project has released the “Operational model for Low Carbon Transport Plans for cruise destination cities”, a document setting a tailored operational model supporting cruise destination cities in the development of Low Carbon Transport Plans. The main steps for the definition of the plans are: building up the team; initial assessment; stakeholders involvement; drafting the plan; monitoring, assessment and mobilization of financial resources.

A workshop was held in Malaga in April to brief all partners on the methodology sharing skills and expertise. Following the workshop, the collection of data for the initial assessment has been launched in all the involved cities to perform a context analysis and identify all relevant stakeholders which are currently engaged in the identification, at local level, of the main priorities to be addressed by the plans.

The MOBILITAS project aims to reduce negative impact on environment and traffic of tourism flows in seaside resorts. It involves seven partner areas: the French Riviera, Malta, the Riviera of Emilia-Romagna, part of North Adriatic basin, central in south Dalmatia, Athens area and Cyprus. Different sustainable tourism mobility scenarios will be prepared as a tool for local authorities to develop more efficient transport planning. The collection of local and regional data is currently underway. General information of each partner area will be provided, including geomorphological data, weather pattern, socioeconomic and demographic data, state of tourism and transport system. On this basis, local scenarios or strategies for single partner areas are going to be elaborated and published in a Handbook for Sustainable Tourism Mobility issued at project conclusion.

The development of advanced ICT tools for traffic is also foreseen, and a software for data collection about tourist transport modes for reaching tourist destinations will be developed.  An APP for tourists, offering information about available means of transport at destination, traffic density and own carbon footprint calculation. A digital platform to regulate flows of tourist buses will also be created.

In the first 8 months, the MOTIVATE partners have started the dissemination activities of the project, through the organization of the first round of Stakeholder Engagement Workshops (SEWs) and Living Labs. In the SEWs each partner presented the project, its objectives and activities. In the case of the Siena Living Lab, the MOTIVATE Platform was also presented and discussed in a more technical way.

The MOTIVATE platform (webpage and app), is being developed by the Centre for Research and Technology Hellas (CERTH/HIT) and is close to completion. It is one of the core tangible outputs of the project. It is expected to be available in September, in order to start the testing phase in the final trimester of 2017.

REMEDIO is engaging urban communities in testing an operational path towards a participatory governance such as “horizontal condominiums” that should lead to better environmental and mobility performances for highly congested roads. At the same time, the project is implementing an Integrated Modelling Tool, in order to assess the present and future scenarios of road performance in terms of energy and freight transport efficiency, noise impact, air pollution, cost and health effects.

A first international seminar for capacity building and knowledge transfer was held on the 18th of May 2017 at the premises of the Superior Technical School of Engineering of Seville. The topic of the workshop was “Non-motorised Transport and Energy Efficient Transport as challenges for road traffic congestion and air quality improvements in the Mediterranean Cities”. Keynote speakers from CATMED community and from the University of Seville led the workshop.

SUMPORT aims to increase the planning capacities of MED port cities through the elaboration or update of Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans, training activities, and pilot actions. It enables port cities to implement, simulate and test mobility solutions, such as: e-bike sharing, car pooling, extension of the bike sharing, bicycle lanes, introduction of sea transport service and ICT application for public transport. The impact of these measures and of SUMPs on citizens’ everyday life will be evaluated.

The first of the four expected SUMPs training courses of the project will take place on 6 July in Valencia, Spain. The training programme will provide public officials and local practitioners of SUMPORT cities with the basic knowledge needed to successfully complete a SUMP planning cycle.
