The SUMI project will provide technical support to calculate a set of indicators related to sustainable urban mobility in more than 50 large and smaller urban areas of the EU.
The main project activities are related to:
- providing rigorous and consistent methodologies for acquisition, harmonisation and analysis of data; this includes the definition of a “mentor” for each indicator, i.e. a reference expert capable to sort out all related technical issues;
- giving technical support to the urban areas and systematically collect their hands-on experiences; appointed “urban area coaches” have the responsibility to establish direct links between the project consortium and the urban areas and help city administrations to gather the needed data;
- carrying on consultation, capacity building and dissemination actions addressed to subjects both inside and outside of the project;
- preparing realistic, harmonised and sound recommendations for further improvement and extension of the indicator system.
