The Urban Accessibility and Connectivity projects are up and running

On 10 May, fifteen awarded projects and their project partners joined the online kick-off to embark on a joint mission, towards more sustainable urban mobility. Participants met to introduce their project, engage in strategic discussions and explore future cooperation between projects. You can now find materials from the event and the newly launched projects catalogue at the bottom of this page.

“We want to make a real difference with research and innovation”

In this first ENUAC call, projects will between 2021 and 2024 create and test new solutions and approaches for sustainable urban mobility. With this shared ambition, 16 countries are pooling resources to implement a series of calls for research and innovation projects as well as accompanying measures to create highest impact. The joint calls and actions will focus on measures to improve urban accessibility and connectivity for all groups of society while moving towards more sustainable urban mobility systems.

Expectations on the projects in ERA-NET Cofund Urban Accessibility and Connectivity (ENUAC) are high. After having been welcomed by the European Commission, the call secretariat and the JPI Urban Europe Management Board, participants exchanged in four different workshops: Urban Mobility Living Labs, Urban Mobility test beds, Cities’ benefits and challenges of being a project partner and Urban accessibility and connectivity: policy contributions. Participants concluded, amongst other things, that it is challenging to start up for instance public transportation projects during pandemic restrictions, but that the good mix of academic partners, businesses, cities and NGOs in the consortia will be helpful. Projects wish to embark from the different challenges and dilemmas, such as lack of resources, time etc. and hope to bridge insights and learnings between different cities for improved effectiveness in transformation processes. The ENUAC projects calls for support and collaboration on how to deal with legislation that does not necessarily allow experimenting – and support in scaling not just “up” but “across” different contexts.
