SUMI Secretariat

By Marko Stancec / Updated: 25 Jul 2022

Introduced in 2017 by the European Commission, SUMI indicators help cities in preparing and monitoring their Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan (SUMP), by identifying the strengths and weaknesses of their mobility system and focusing on areas for improvement.  

Eltis/SUMI2 promotes the uptake of SUMPs in Europe, improves the SUMP Self-Assessment Tool, and cooperates with 100 European cities to calculate their indicators and provide assistance to them through city-specific support, a SUMI secretariat, training, and a data acquisition fund.

 

What is the SUMI Secretariat?

The SUMI Secretariat is the central hotline for all cities on the Sustainable urban mobility indicators (SUMI).  

The SUMI Secretariat will provide technical assistance to cooperating cities/ urban areas (EU Mission “Climate-Neutral and Smart Cities”) for the calculation of the revised SUMI indicators. 

By calculating the updated SUMI indicators, frontrunner cities will get individual assistance and support with the identification of data sources, quality review, plausibility, and consistency checks. Cities will get visibility and recognition beyond the project at European, national and local levels as frontrunners in applying sustainable urban mobility indicators.

For general support and access to SUMI indicators, all other cities can directly approach the SUMI Secretariat with their questions about technical support.

SUMI Secretariat is led by POLIS and supported by Rupprecht, TRT, UITP, and TML.

The project started in December 2021 and will last until December 2023.
