  • The focus of the call

    Urban transportation of goods and people accounts for a significant share of greenhouse gas emissions and therefore requires a significant reduction, especially in a highly urbanized continent such as Europe. Innovative solutions to accelerate the transition to climate neutrality and increased attractiveness are in demand by cities of all types and sizes, which want to redistribute the city's limited space in favor of sustainable modes of transport and qualitative public space. Managing different types of accessibility in the city is an important part of such a process, and the focus of this call for proposals.

    Thematic areas

    The call is for project that contribute to at least one of the following thematic areas (English original text in parentheses):

    • Contributes to increased utilization of potentials and integration of measures for urban accessibility (Utilizing untapped potentials and mainstreaming of measures for managing urban accessibility)
    • Contributes to increased acceptance of and participation in measures that contribute to accessibility (Making measures for managing urban accessibility accepted and participatory)
    • Helps to make measures for managing urban accessibility more agile (Making measures for managing urban accessibility more agile)
    • Helps to make measures for managing urban accessibility efficient, robust and effective (Making measures for managing urban accessibility effective, robust and impactful)

    In this context, sustainable urban accessibility means the possibility of reaching destination points through an urban transport system, with a low environmental impact.
