Supervised implementation of sustainable urban transport concepts


Avoidance of traffic, shifting to other modes of transport, and environmentally conscious design ? these are the main strategies for sustainable urban transport. Municipal and regional decision-makers need properly evaluated scientific information about best practices and relevant experience so they can quickly and efficiently implement urban transport concepts which are sustainable, cost-effective, environmentally friendly and efficient. The supervised implementation of small, manageable and tailor-made projects and concepts which represent realistic steps, together with the exchange of experience and relevant personnel shall enable the participating institutions to build up relevant capacities. Using a selection of 19 partners from six member states and two accession countries representing small and medium-sized cities (up to 500, 000 inhabitants), policy makers of municipalities and cities will be able to exchange know-how with academia and business. This will - provide the scientific basis to enable decision-makers in cities and municipalities to guarantee a fast and efficient implementation of new and existing sustainable urban transport concepts; - provide evaluated information on recent urban transport problems; - link experiences in special fields of transport and support an exchange of know-how between transport SMEs and research centres with policy-makers of municipalities and cities; - coordinate existing activities of the partners in the field of urban transport with respect to sustainable, cost-effective, environmentally friendly, efficient and resource-saving transport development; - build capacity in terms of technology and manpower by exchanging experiences, presenting best practices and disseminating the results to other regional areas, transport networks, policy makers and other stakeholders. - A key aim of TRANSPOWER is to supervise the implementation of existing concepts in the field using innovative approaches.
