SUMPs-Up call for cities to join next round of its learning programme

Does your city want support in developing a package of measures for a Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan (SUMP)? Do you want to learn more about the processes behind doing so? Then apply to join the next round of the SUMP Learning Programme (SLP) from CIVITAS SUMPs-Up!

Up to 40 planning authorities have the chance to participate in SLP 3 and 4, which start in September and December 2018 respectively. Together, these two groups of mobility practitioners will form the second Expert Group of SUMP cities.

The six-month programmes combine knowledge transfer and testing and assessment with learning on concepts, approaches, tools, and methodologies for SUMP development.

Both programmes focus on the SUMP elaboration process. The activities blend online and face-to-face learning and exchange. Participants also benefit from a peer review and one-to-one support from SUMPs-Up mobility experts.

SUMPs-Up is seeking mobility and transport professionals active in local or regional transport planning authorities with sustainable mobility planning experience. Those currently elaborating their first SUMP are also encouraged to apply.

All applicants must be based in a European Union Member State or a country in the European Economic Area. Find full details on eligibility in the call document available at the link below.

The application deadline is 18:00 CET on 8 April. Click here to access the application form and all call documentation, including the full call text and some frequently asked questions.
