Addressing urban mobility challenges

Duration: 2019 - 2011



SUMP-PLUS is a three-year project, designed to address urban mobility-related challenges and to exploit new opportunities, by developing a strong, rigorous evidence base through co-created City Laboratories approach building, in most cases, on the strengths of the existing SUMPs and SULPs or on developing such plans where they do not exist (in particular, in order to validate a SUMP-lite concept).


This approach is to be demonstrated in six EU cities / city regions: Alba Iulia (RO), Antwerp (BE), Klaipėda (LT), Lucca (IT), Greater Manchester (UK), and Platanias (GR). SUMP-PLUS will develop and apply transition pathways towards more sustainable cities taking into account the need to establish stronger links with other urban system components.
