Do you want advice and support on how to finance and procure services for your
city's Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan (SUMP)? Then apply to join the next
round of the CIVITAS SUMPs-Up Learning Programme - which has extended its call
to 31 January 2019.
The CIVITAS SUMPs-Up project brings together European cities, researchers, universities, environmental organisations, climate institutes, transport consultants and mobility experts into one initiative to help cities introduce cleaner, sustainable mobility solutions.
Up to 25 planning authorities have the chance to join the fifth SUMP Learning Programme (SLP5), which will start in May 2019. This group of mobility practitioners will complete the Expert Group of 90 SUMP cities.
The six-month SLP5 module will focus on SUMP implementation, financing and procurement. It will combine knowledge transfer and testing and assessment with learning on concepts, approaches, tools and methodologies for SUMP development.
The activities blend online and face-to-face learning and exchange. They include writing and reviewing a SUMP action plan, monitoring and evaluating the impact of measures, procuring services and identifying new challenges. Participants also benefit from a city-to-city review and a one-to-one support session from SUMPs-Up mobility experts.
SUMPs-Up is seeking mobility and transport professionals active in local or regional transport planning authorities who have experience in sustainable mobility planning. Cities currently developing their first SUMP are also encouraged to apply. Alongside urban and regional authorities, local consortiums containing such an authority can also apply. All applicants must be based in a member state of the European Union, a country in the European Economic Area
or an associated country
of the Horizon 2020 programme.
The deadline for applications is now 18:00 CET on 31 January 2019.
