CIVITAS VANGUARD (Advancing Sustainable Urban Transport in an Enlarged Europe through CIVITAS) is a proposed support action aimed at assisting the European Commission Directorate for Transport and Energy in coordinating the next, “CIVITAS-Plus” phase of its “CIVITAS Initiative” for cleaner and sustainable urban transport, as well as to assist in the dissemination of results of CIVITAS-Plus.


In particular, VANGUARD coordinates assistance to CIVITAS-Plus demonstration projects and disseminates the results of these activities through a communication campaign at the European level. The project is implemented by a project consortium consisting of European city networks as well as transport, energy and policy oriented organizations and a communications company. All in all, CIVITAS VANGUARD aims to assure the coordinated and smooth day-to-day operations of the CIVITAS Initiative, further raising its prestige and visibility in a wider European context.
