VIU_TeDIS is one of the partners of the SPROUT project: Sustainable Policy RespOnse to Urban mobility Transition, financed by the H2020 Program.
SPROUT provides a new city-led innovative and data driven policy response to address the impacts of the emerging mobility patterns, digitally-enabled operating and business models, and transport users’ needs.
Previously tested and implemented policy responses employing access restrictions, congestion charging or infrastructure provision, seem today unable to adequately address the changes underway in the urban mobility scene.
Any policy responses should take into all stages of the policy lifecycle and should have an eye not only to the present but also to the future.
Starting from an understanding of the transition taking place in urban mobility, SPROUT:
_will define the resultant impacts at the sustainability and policy level,
_will harness these through a city-led innovative policy response,
_will build cities’ data-driven capacity to identify, track and deploy innovative urban mobility solutions,
_will navigate future policy by channelling project results at local, regional, national and EU level.
To achieve its goals, SPROUT will employ 6 city pilots (including China) with real-life policy challenges faced as a result of urban mobility transition in both passenger and freight, covering urban and peri-urban areas, different emerging mobility solutions, and context requirements.
Duration: 36 months from 2019
