CIVITAS ECCENTRIC

Innovative solutions for sustainable mobility of people in suburban city districts and emission free freight logistics in urban centres.

European cities have created liveable and attractive city centres, but a remaining conflict exists between providing high quality public space and meeting the accessibility requirements for freight deliveries. Also, higher car usage in suburban areas has previously been largely unaddressed.

CIVITAS ECCENTRIC will demonstrate the potential and replicability of integrated and inclusive urban planning approaches, innovative policies and emerging technologies in five European cities: Madrid, Stockholm, Munich, Turku and Ruse. The project will test clean vehicles and fuels, develop consolidation solutions and draft new regulations and services in close partnership with the private sector.

The project's ambition is to contribute to the targets set in EU's White paper on transport in terms of air quality, energy use and road casualties aiming to reach CO2 free city logistics by 2030.
