On 1st October 2020, 10:30 – 11:30, the session “Data-driven decision making tools for small and medium-sized cities” took place in UMD2020.
Questions on; how can data analysis be used as a tool to improve mobility and transport in cities; what are the benefits of collecting real traffic data, and what tools do small and medium-sized cities have to make to design and implement sustainable mobility measures based on scientific evidence, provided the fertile ground for insights and solutions.
The session shed light on these crucial issues drawing on the experience of the EU-funded SUITS project. Efficient and cheap technologies to collect mobility data in urban areas and discover new ways sustainable mobility measures be designed by building on data collection.
Cities that have successfully tested the technologies and realised the benefits of the data collection technologies within the SUITS project shared their first-hand experience. Furthermore, the session also featured contributions from the EU-funded WeCount and MOMENTUM projects.

The 1st SUITS Multiplier Workshop “National and Urban Mobility Policy and Planning” will take place on Monday 11th November 2019, from 12:00 – 18:00.
The main focus of the discussion will be the vertical integration of sustainable urban mobility plans (SUMPs). Currently, the European Commission’s SUMP guidelines are being updated. The workshop will discuss their implementation in practice. With a focus on Germany, the workshop will also considerate, which measures are needed from what level of government to enable SUMP2.0 implementation and to enable a suitable mobility transition. It will thematise how a coordination between different levels of government can best be facilitated and the key priorities for municipalities with regard to support from other levels of government.Read more..
The SUITS webinar is designed to build and/or strengthen the capacity of small-medium cities’ Local Authorities to to introduce innovative transport schemes, i.e car-sharing, ridesharing (carpooling – vanpooling), bike – sharing, MaaS etc. The webinar is tailored to the needs of local authorities of small-medium cities and especially staff from the transport planning, strategical urban planning, urban development and procurement departments.
It will take place on June 13, 2019, 2:30 PM CEST. A prior registration is essential. If you are interested, please register here.Read more..

The importance of transport’s social dimension is becoming increasingly clear – mobility shapes lives and prospects. It is crucial that transport systems are environmentally friendly, inclusive, efficient, and centred on meeting diverse user needs. Yet how can this be accomplished?
Under the banner of “Mobility for U and Me”, this year’s CIVITAS Forum Conference gathered hundreds of policymakers, city representatives, academics, and practitioners in Umeå, Sweden, from 19-21 September to debate this critical question.Read more..

The CIVITAS FORUM 2017 Conference will take place on 27-29 September 2017 in Torres Vedras, Portugal. In the context of the FORUM, which brings together the CIVITAS community from across Europe, the three CIVITAS SUMP projects – PROSPERITY, SUITS and SUMPs-Up – are jointly organising a World Café session, which will take place on 27 September 2017. The aim of this session is to bring together inspiring best practises of planning processes in small and mid-sized cities and thus inspire participants to discuss the wider economic benefits of SUMP investments beyond the city borders. The city of Kalamaria, partner in SUITS, will introduce the discussion on identifying knowledge gaps with regard to urban mobility and on sharing knowledge and good practices on the matter with other cities.
