Actions demonstrate how Park4SUMP will lead to achieve sustainable transport in urban areas by strategically integrating innovative parking management solutions into SUMP policies.


Analysis Report

Analysis report combines questionnaire results and addition information from the city interviews, served as basis for the work in WP 3 (partly also WP4, WP5, WP7)

Monitor and Evaluation Plan

This will set out the methodology and resources that will be used to achieve WP7’s objectives, and will include guidance to partners on their role in this crucial activity, since not all partners will be familiar with M&E, nor will they necessarily understand what they need to do to carry it out. It will include the proposed monitoring and evaluation methodology to be employed in each city. It will also contain guidance and the forms and templates required to comply with ethics requirements. Delivered in Month 6 in draft and presented at second project meeting then finalised in Month 8.

Report lessons learnt

Review of lessons learnt in evaluation from previous parking and wider CIVITAS projects where access control and parking measures have been implemented. Desk research will be conducted to review and critically assess the evaluation of a number of parking management or other sustainable mobility measures carried out in projects (where ENU was or currently is a partner) such as PUSH&PULL (on parking) and the H2020 projects SUNRISE and PROSPERITY. Evaluation reports from the PUSH&PULL project will be reviewed, to study the methods and indicators employed in evaluating the impact and effectiveness of a number of parking measures implemented in 8 European cities, each of different size and at different stage in economic development. This activity will allow the team to compare and contrast the examples from cities, learn about the measures they implemented, the indicators used for evaluation and the difficulties encountered during the data collection and evaluation process. Some of the organisations engaged in the aforementioned projects will be part of the proposed P4SUMP new Consortium, which will also allow for the gathering of “insider knowledge” and not just secondary source information. The review of relevant materials from previous projects will allow partners to avoid reinventing the wheel in evaluation in PARK4SUMP but at the same time act as a brainstorming process to stimulate the development of new innovative evaluation methods using, potentially, “big data” from mobile phone data or social media, for example. This task will be led by ENU. It will produce report D7.1 setting out lessons learned from evaluation in previous projects which will be complete in month 4.

ParkPAD action plans

ParkPAD action plans are final implementation plans based on WP 2 analysis outcomes and the WParkPAD audits in each Park4SUMP city. The action plans also include roadmaps for SUMP integration.

Dissemination and communication materials

A series of standard dissemination and communication materials to promote the project and its results will be developed. • At the beginning of the project the Visual Identity and Corporate Design of the CIVITAS initiative will be provided and used to maximise the impact of the dissemination and communication activities and to market the project successfully to the target groups. The components of this Visual Identity will be present on all promotional products, tools and services provided by Park4SUMP. • Standard print materials will include a roll-up poster for presentations at stands and a project leaflet that describes the projects aims and objectives in a concise manner as well as the expected outcomes and gives an overview about the consortium and the website; . All will be available online and printed in the project languages (AL, BG, DE, EN, EE, ES, FR, HR, IT, NL, NO, PL, PT and RO). • The project will be presented at several local, national and international meetings and conferences. Therefore a standard power point presentation containing information about the objectives, key elements and main target groups of the project will be produced and translated into all project languages (AL, BG, DE, EN, EE, ES, FR, HR, IT, NL, NO, PL, PT and RO) and additionally into FI, GR, SE and SI to facilitate further dissemination. These standard power point presentations will also be useful for the local dissemination activities within the whole project. • The city partners will prepare press releases and provide the press with input for articles in newspapers and magazines and if appropriate for Radio/TV appearances.

Dissemination and communication strategy

Report to summarise the efforts within the DEC plan to be developped. The DC plan will build on two axis: awareness raising and empowerment.


Two websites - an upgrade of the Push&Pull website and development of the Park4SUMP website - will be taken care of. The existing PUSH & PULL website which was developed within the Steer project on parking management and the combination with mobility management will be continued, improved and re-vamped within the framework of the CIVITAS corporate identity (provided by the CIVITAS Satellite project) and in line with the project communication strategy. This site will not re-invent the wheel, nor does it want to be a competitor to the ECs one-stop-shop service and information site for SUMP which is While the latter site focuses on resources like tools & guidelines, case studies, news items etc. with higher level / European relevance, the Park4SUMP site will give its (city)members room for providing specific information like national / regional trainings, events or exchange of experience options. The site will have a public part for external visitors where the local / national activities etc. are described and downloads are provided. There will also be a section for the announcement of national relevant events. The website will present data and information that is interesting targeted to specific target groups as well as information appealing and interesting to the general public. The internal part of the website will only be accessible to consortium partners and will contain sensitive documents, templates, log files, minutes from meetings, and dissemination and communication tools for download. A special part of the public site will be the presentation of articles or interviews with and from “parking-ambassadors” from different countries and cities. These ambassadors will be politicians or city managers who could tell interesting stories, findings and lessons learnt from their personal experience with parking policies with the aim to encourage others to also take up those. Alongside the Park4SUMP project website there will be a separate website for the ParkPAD tool to support its institutionalisation

ParkPAD audit and ceritification scheme

ParkPAD scheme that will be tested by partner cities in WP4. On the basis of this experience it will be refined and finalised as the final step in Task 3.4.

Data management plan

A data management plan for the project (DMP) will be produced. This task will be led by WP Leader ENU but with support from other research focused partners FGM, Issinova and DIFU. The DMP will be a living document that will be regularly updated and also disseminated to partners both via regular phone conferences and at each project meeting, to give them regular reminders about the importance of managing correctly the data that are gathered by the project, both to ensure that data protection rules are respected, but also to ensure that the data are accessible and organised for others working in the project. The DMP will specify how Park4SUMP will: • Provide a summary of the nature, quantity, quality and source(s) of the data that are to be gathered in the project • Explain how the project’s data will be made discoverable and compliant with Open Access regulations • Explain how data security and personal privacy will be ensured, and how these aspects will be conveyed to those partners in the project who will be responsible for gathering primary data. • Resolve any ethical issues related to management of data in the project.
