International projects

 

Among the activities of Roma Servizi per la Mobilità is fundraising and creating national and international partnerships to develope projects regarding mobility and environment, sustainable mobility policies and telematics in transports.

These activities are carried out by a group that deals with the management of European projects and the research of partnerships to participate in calls for proposals of the European Commission; such partecipations allow getting the funds to manage the projects, be part of an international network on mobility and environment, welcome international delegations, represent Roma Servizi per la Mobilità at international conferences, and collaborate, by sharing expertise, with emerging countries like China and India.

Furthermore, Roma Servizi per la Mobilità has an active role in participating to European projects on behalf of the Mobility Department of Roma Capitale, and it is proud of its leading role in the European network of cities actively working for a Sustainable Mobility within the project CIVITAS. 

SUITS

The SUITS project is a four-year research and innovation action, intending to increase the capacity building of Local Authorities and transport stakeholders and to transfer learning to smaller sized cities, making them more effective and resilient to change in the judicious implementation of sustainable transport measures. SUITS is one of the three projects of the EU’s CIVITAS 2020 initiative focusing on sustainable urban mobility plans.

The project will produce and provide to small and medium-sized cities a set of tools on planing, financing and implementing sustainable transport measures and will support the enhancement of the capacity of nine cities in seven EU countries to address efficiently the new challenges of urban mobility and to foster investments in sustainable transport.

My Corridor

MyCorridor is a 3-year project, funded by the EU’s Horizon 2020 programme. Its overall objective is to achieve sustainable travel in urban and interurban areas and across borders by replacing private vehicle ownership by private vehicle use

The project looks into connecting services from various service providers and providing the traveler with alternatives to replace their own vehicle trip with combined shared vehicles and multimodal transport solutions. The project is part of the Mobility as a Service (MaaS) concept that puts users at the core of transport services, offering them tailor-made mobility solutions based on their individual needs.

The experiment will be carried out on the following “pilots”:

  • Athens – Loutraki – Korinthos (Greece): local, rural and cross-urban corridor

  • Rafina Port – Aegean Islands (Greece): local, interurban corridor

  • Thessaloniki – Rome (Greece – Italy): interurban and cross-border corridor

  • Ostia – Rome (Italy): local, cross-urban corridor

  • Rome (Italy): local, cross-urban corridor

  • Italy – Austria: cross-border corridor

HandShake

HandShake projectHandshake supports the effective take up of the integrated cycling solutions successfully developed by Amsterdam, Copenhagen and Munich, our Cycling Capitals and world-renowned cycling front runners, to our 10 highly committed Future Cycling Capitals, Bordeaux Metropole, Bruges, Cadiz, Dublin, Helsinki, Krakow, Greater Manchester, Riga, Rome and Turin. Our partner cities are combined in a composite working environment in which diverse geographical contexts, socio-economic conditions and planning cultures work toward the same goals, that is, delivering the desired cycling change. The project believes that effective transfer can happen only in the presence of: i) state-of-art body of knowledge on cycling policy and solutions; ii) sustaining transition processes; iii) motivating and supporting forms of mentorship. In HANDSHAKE this is ensured by the presence of 3 cycling planning champions, the employment of highly innovative methods brought together into a supportive and novel transfer cycle (including Bikenomics, Immersive Study Tours and Transition Management), and a mentorship programme that takes by the hand each participating city. The gathered team will cooperate to reach a number of strategic objectives: i) Inspire the creation or refinement of holistic cycling visions and concrete transfer approaches; ii) Foster the adoption of a multidisciplinary planning culture to empower the project process and consolidate future cycling policies and investments; iii) allow cycling to become a key element of urban transport; iv) Improve cycling modal share and safety; v) Leverage the potential of cycling as a critical congestion relief tool; vi) Leverage cycling to improve public health; vii) Foster economic growth. HANDSHAKE expects to improve cycling attractiveness by +52% and competitiveness by 17%, shift ca. 60.000 people to cycling with +34% in frequency of cycling use, 37,5% in accidents, traffic levels lowered by 6,34%, and CO2 savings of -3.706.000 kg CO2/year.

TIDE

TIDE progetto europeoThe objective of the TIDE project is to maximize the dissemination and adoption of 15 innovative measures on urban transport and urban mobility in Europe making a tangible contribution to make such actions mainstream. The 15 actions supervised by TIDE focus on five thematic groups: funding models and pricing measures, non-motorized transport, network and traffic management to support the information given to travelers, electric vehicles, organization of public transport. "Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans" is the horizontally developed theme that integrate clusters activities. TIDE is a coordination action funded by DG Research and Innovation of the European Commission under the 7th Framework Programme for Research and Development.The project is coordinated by POLIS association, to which Agenzia per la Mobilità has been delegated to be a member by the Department for Mobility and Transport of the City of Rome. The project proposal of the Agency was rated among the top 10 out of the 60 submitted at European level.
