ACUTE – Accessibility and Connectivity knowledge hub for Urban Transformation in Europe

The Knowledge Hub ACUTE has been established under the framework of ERA-NET EN-UAC. The project started in November 2022 and will last 2 years with a dedicated view to become a permanent contact point for the community.

ACUTE will address the challenges of sustainable urban passenger mobility, freight transport and connectivity as an integral and essential part of sustainable urban development. The project wants to enable cross-project cooperation, extract and consolidate knowledge of all existing ENU-UAC projects, initiate efforts to support practitioners and bring together experts from different sectors.

The Knowledge Hub ACUTE will support the program EN-UAC and its projects by:

  • Helping to overcome the fragmentation of findings and experiences
  • Create a space for stakeholder exchange
  • Enable cross-project cooperation; consolidate and synthesise knowledge
  • Support practitioners, policy-makers and funders with the mainstreaming of research results; and
  • Provide strategic support for the Program DUT.
