Open call: Funding for sustainable urban mobility campaigns

Eligible for funding are non-commercial enterprise incl. local authorities. Promotional actions need first to be registered online and can then apply for up to EUR 7 000 of financial support to boost the campaign initiative. Campaigners in Bulgaria, Greece, Italy, Latvia, Romania and the UK are not permitted to apply as these countries have already received targeted support with setting up national campaigns within the SUM Campaign.

Applying for funding is an online process: Go to, create an account, register your promotional action and tick the 'Apply HERE to get up to EUR 7000 of financial support!' box at the bottom of the form. You will then be asked to provide additional information regarding the budget, planning and promotion of your initiative and to describe the link with relevant EU initiatives and programmes in the field of transport and energy-efficiency. You will also be required to upload digital scans of documents that allow verification of the legal status of your organisation.

A committee of experts will select one winning promotional action per country based on a pre-defined set of evaluation and eligibility criteria. All applicants will be notified as to their funding status in early July 2013.

The European Commission's Sustainable Urban Mobility campaign is linked to the European Mobility Week, which runs from 16 to 22 September every year and culminates in the 'In Town Without My Car!' day. The campaign is managed by the Directorate-General for Mobility and Transport and funded through the Intelligent Energy Europe Programme – the EU's support programme for non-technological actions in the field of energy efficiency and renewable energy sources.

Polis is part of the consortium implementing the campaign.
