The proposed project should aim at solving urban mobility challenges in European cities and deal with one or several of the following topics:
Active Mobility, Active mobility is regular physical activity undertaken as a means of transport. It includes travel by foot, bicycle and other vehicles which require physical effort to get moving. The expected outcome would be higher levels of use of active mobility in target demo cities.
Future Mobility, The expected outcome would be new services and disruptive technologies which have the potential to reshape the ways in which we live, work, and move within the city.
Sustainable City Logistics , The expected outcome would include new vehicles, new procurement / purchasing models, new consolidation solutions, new hub services, new production models (e.g., so that goods are produced “close-to-home”), new software solutions for optimizing freight, new solutions for managing loading/unloading etc.
Mobility and Energy, Increased use of cleaner fueled vehicles. The measure implemented should have the potential for replication and scaling in other European contexts.

The goal of this call for projects is to generate social innovation by improving and transforming streets and public spaces with tactical urbanism and street experiments as part of a city-wide approach for liveable cities, and building on adopted mobility strategies and plans in cities. Projects will implement pilots for inclusive, safe and accessible public realm design in a city or town, and build momentum for long-term policy change in communities – especially in disconnected and less central neighbourhoods – to help improve liveability for all local residents. https://www.eiturbanmobility.eu/public-realm-call-for-proposals-2022/
