CIVITAS is one of the most successful EU programmes in promoting innovative solutions for sustainable urban development. The CIVITAS SATELLITE project coordinates and supports the efforts of the current and upcoming CIVITAS activities.
The project helps cities gain better access to innovative solutions to address their transport challenges. It brings the latest innovations from European urban mobility research to cities through cross-project coordination and exchange mechanisms.
In practice, the project further elaborates the CIVITAS Impact and Process Evaluation Framework, provides city practitioners with the necessary skills to apply innovations in their own context, and helps to prepare for the actual take-up of these solutions through peer-to-peer learning. In addition, SATELLITE enhances cooperation between the public and private sector, offering a dedicated online marketplace for urban transport innovations.
The project promotes CIVITAS successes and improves access to available solutions, while enhancing networking among all CIVITAS Forum members.
