SUMPs-Up Innovation Pilot Pool

By News Editor / Updated: 21 Apr 2017


Apply to the first CIVITAS SUMPs-Up call for planning authorities by 24 May 2017


The CIVITAS SUMPs-Up project is recruiting planning authorities for its Innovation Pilot Pool (IPP), a select group of transport and urban mobility planning practitioners who will develop innovative tools and services to help SUMP development in European cities.

The IPP will enable the creation of a community of 100 transport professionals who, with SUMPs-Up funding and through participating in its learning activities – known as SUMP Learning Programmes (SLPs) – will test and apply SUMP approaches, tools and methodologies in transport planning practice in real conditions at the local or regional levels and will provide comments and feedback on their experience to improve the tested tools and methodologies.

The first 40 IPP participants will be selected via the first CIVITAS SUMPs-Up IPP call. They will join the Expert Group for six months and their activities will focus on:

  • Tools and services for initiating a SUMP
  • Tools and services for initiating a SUMP tailor-made for small and medium-sized cities

An additional 10 IPP participants will be selected via the first CIVITAS SUMPs-Up IPP call to join the Leadership Group and will assist CIVITAS SUMPs-Up for three years.

The remaining 50 IPP participants will be selected via similar calls for applications that will open in 2018 and 2019 and will focus on tools and services for developing a SUMP and tools and services for SUMP implementation respectively.
