The EU co-funded project FLOW is currently recruiting Exchange and Followers Cities. Cities from across Europe can apply that are interested in modelling practices to maximise the congestion reducing potential of walking and cycling measures.
FLOW will support nine cities interested in pairing up with FLOW Partner Cities (Budapest, Dublin, Gdynia, Lisbon, Munich, and Sofia) on integrating walking and cycling as equal modes into their planning processes and transport models. Applicants should have a minimum experience of traffic modelling practices and software. Exchange cities are required to a higher level of commitment and participation compared to follower cities and are offered a modest budget.
Selection of the 25-30 FLOW Follower Cities will be based on creating a good balance of cities – geographically and by city size – which are facing congestion problems and would like to use walking and cycling measures to solve them while improving their local planning and modelling practices. A basic understanding of traffic modelling practices and software is required.
FLOW’s goal is to put walking and cycling on an equal footing with motorised modes as a solution to urban congestion. To do this, FLOW has brought together experts in the field of traffic modelling (PTV Group) with leading walking and cycling experts (Walk21 and the European Cyclists’ Federation) to develop a userfriendly methodology to assess the ability of walking and cycling measures to reduce congestion. FLOW is supported by the European Commission’s Horizon 2020 programme.
