TIDE (Transport Innovation Deployment for Europe) enhances the broad transfer and take-up of 15 innovative urban transport and mobility measures and makes a contribution to establish them as mainstream measures.
TIDE focuses on 15 innovative measures in five thematic clusters: financing models and pricing measures, non-motorised transport, network and traffic management to support traveller information, electric vehicles and public transport organisation. Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans is a horizontal topic integrated in the cluster activities.
TIDE builds further on the NICHES+ and NICHES project, and is funded by DG Research & Innovation. It runs from October 2012 to September 2015.

Created as a follow up of the OSMOSE awards developed in the framework of the NICHES project (2004-2007) – the TIDE Awards aim to reward local authorities that have shown the courage to introduce innovative and daring measures to meet the urban transport challenges they are facing in a sustainable and effective way. The TIDE Awards have been granted at the project's final conference in September 2015 in Barcelona http://www.tide-innovation.eu/en/News/Kocaeli-and-Ealing-TIDE-Award-Winners/.
