POLIS is looking for an expert to prepare a Policy Brief on e-mobility in the Mediterranean

Do you want to be part of the dialogue about the transition to a more sustainable mobility system in the Mediterranean area? Do you care about improving liveability in cities and regions? Is e-mobility your bread and butter? Then you are the expert POLIS Network and the Urban Transport Community are looking for! 

The Urban Transport Community (UTC) is an Interreg MED initiative that aims to promote innovative solutions for sustainable mobility in the territories of Mediterranean Europe.  

In February 2021, the UTC partnership approved the elaboration of 3 thematic policy briefs and one final policy paper. A first policy brief was published in June 2021 focusing on active mobility, with recommendations to the local, regional, national and European policy-making levels. A second policy paper will be published in April 2022, focusing on the nexus between sustainable mobility and sustainable tourism with a focus on the Mediterranean. 

Within this frame, POLIS is looking for an expert to draft a third policy brief, to be published by early September 2022, revolving around the topic of e-mobility in the specific area of the Mediterranean. The objective is for the policy brief to be drafted with the consultation of different relevant stakeholders, including the UTC partnership, and to be disseminated at EU and regional events, contributing to the capitalisation, and mainstreaming of the project results.
