This week (16.-22.09.2020) was the European Mobility Week. The event raises awareness of sustainable mobility and urges to take further steps to achieve the goal of making Europe a carbon-neutral continent.The theme of this year's event is 'zero-emission mobility for all!'. Several of our Interreg Alpine Space projects are working on making mobility more sustainable.
LinkingAlps, for example, aims to improve cross-border travel in the Alpine region. The main objective is to foster the shift from motorized individual transport towards low carbon mobility options such as public transport, railways and alternative modes of transport. The project creates a standardized exchange service of travel information linking current individual information systems. Read more about the project here.
Additionally, the Alpine Space projects SaMBa and MELINDA teamed up to examine the impact of Covid-19 on mobility behaviours. The current situation creates new challenges but also opportunities related to mobility. You can read their final Green Paper on Covid-19 here.
Also the project e-SMART works on helping to fulfill the vision of 'zero-emission mobility for all'. The project aims to foster transnational cooperation among public and private actors to implement an integrated approach to electric vehicle infrastrucutre. On 23 September, the project organizes the first transnational living lab! You can register here. Read more about e-SMART's objectives here.
