The goal? To foster urban mobility innovations

CIVITAS CAPITAL was a three-year project aiming to contribute significantly to the goals of the EU's Transport White Paper by capitalising systematically on the results of CIVITAS and creating an effective "value chain" for urban mobility innovation. CIVITAS CAPITAL initiated and supported a mainstreaming process of CIVITAS principles based on a strengthened community of stakeholders.

CAPITAL helped CIVITAS build the bridge towards a more advanced identity within Horizon 2020. It also helped create a more structured link with large-scale deployment in support of Transport White Paper goals. The CAPITAL strategic goals were:

  1. To consolidate existing knowledge and lessons learnt and to provide recommendations for the successful continuation of CIVITAS
  2. To create a dynamic knowledge centre as a means of structured dialogue and exchange among CIVITAS stakeholders
  3. To facilitate a structured transfer of CIVITAS measures based on practical experiencesgray vehicle being fixed inside factory using robot machines
  4. To establish and manage national/regional CIVITAS networks serving as delivery channels and activation mechanisms for stakeholders
  5. To deliver a quality project.
