MOVE21 connects urban systems in an integrated approach and address both goods and passenger transport. The aim is to improve efficiency, capacity utilization of existing vehicles and transport related infrastructure, accessibility and innovation capacity in urban transport.
The idea of cities as testbeds is central to MOVE21. The project comprises three Living Labs in Oslo, Gothenburg and Hamburg, together with three replicator cities: Munich, Bologna and Rome. MOVE21 tests and upscales different solutions for passenger and goods transport in these six urban areas across the Scandinavian-Mediterranean (Scan-Med) Corridor of the Trans-European Transport Network (TEN-T). The idea is to harness positive effects of new solutions, not only in the so-called urban nodes, but across the Scan-Med TEN-T corridor.
The proposed solutions deliver new, close to market ready solutions that have been proven to work in different regulatory and governance settings. The cities are also committed to upscaling the most prominent solutions – which can range from new technological integrations or business models to new procurement and governance methods.
The consortium comprises 24 partners coming from seven 7 European countries.
The project has received a 9 million EUR funding from the EU Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Programme.
MOVE21 started in May 2021 and will end in April 2025.
