First SUMI Application Dialogue - 18 June 2019

First SUMI Application Dialogue

Date: 18 June 2019, Location: Groningen, The Netherlands



Representatives of urban areas and Urban Area Coaches involved in the SUMI project are cordially invited to the first

SUMI Application Dialogue

which will take place in Groningen on the 18th of June, from 16.00 to 18.00.

The workshop is organised by the SUMI project back-to-back with the 6th European Conference on Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans on 17-18 June 2019 in Groningen.

As SUMI commits to streamline the SUMI indicator set and to support the application of the unified set of indicators in as many cities and regions in Europe as possible, the objective of the workshop will be to provide structured feedback on the application of the indicators and to facilitate structured learning among the cities involved in the project. The conclusions of the meeting will feed into the recommendations that will be prepared by SUMI for the European Commission at the end of the project.

The workshop will be organised in the form of three small focus group discussions addressing the following topics:

  • Definition and validity of the SUMI indicators;
  • Challenges in data collection and indicator application;
  • Benefits, limitations and expectations of cities related to benchmarking results.

SUMI can cover travel costs to the workshop for local authorities and Urban Area Coaches for up to €700. However, it might be that you plan to join the SUMP conference anyway and your travel costs are already covered. If not, please inform us in advance whether you would need to get your travel costs reimbursed by the SUMI Project.
