CIVITAS Activity Fund and training opportunities boost urban transport

06 October 2015

The CIVITAS Initiative, which works to promote and support cleaner and better transport in cities, launched the fourth and final call to its Activity Fund on 1 October.

The Activity Fund co-finances projects which involve the transfer of successful measures from ‘pioneer’ cities to ‘take-up’ cities. Applications to the fourth call, which offers €80,000 in co-financing, should relate to one of the 10 CIVITAS Thematic Categories, as well as a series of proven CIVITAS Tools.

Applications may be submitted individually or jointly by organisations that have not already been involved in projects funded by the CIVITAS Initiative. Organisations applying for funding need to be established in an EU Member State or Albania, the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, Iceland, Israel, Kosovo, Montenegro, Norway, Serbia, Switzerland or Turkey. The call will be open for seven weeks, with an application deadline of 20 November.

Additionally, the CIVITAS Learning Centre recently released four new e-courses on bike-sharing, public involvement, traffic and mobility fundamentals, and mobility management. The Learning Centre will also organise in-person trainings until August 2016 on an ongoing basis. Finally, the Learning Centre runs the CIVITAS placement programme, where municipal mobility staff can learn from their colleagues in a number of leading CIVITAS cities.
