ELEVATE – Urban Mobility Policy-Making

CIVITAS is a network of cities for cities dedicated to cleaner, better transport in Europe and beyond.  Since it was launched by the European Commission in 2002, the CIVITAS Initiative has tested and implemented over 800 measures and urban transport solutions as a part of demonstration projects in more than 80 Living Lab cities across Europe.

The ELEVATE project aims to increase the Europe-wide impact of Research and Innovation Actions on urban mobility policy-making,  thereby advancing the CIVITAS community to a higher level of knowledge, exchange, impact and sustainability, while guaranteeing essential high-quality support. ELEVATE is committed to achieving the following objectives:

  1. Developing the CIVITAS knowledge base and transferring new knowledge.
  2. Enriching the current CIVITAS generation and feeding future EU initiatives.
  3. Building a European mobility community able to navigate transition.
  4. Representing CIVITAS on the international stage.

Breda University of Applied Sciences (BUas) is work package leader for a work package on incubation and CIVINETs.
