CIVITAS SATELLITE - Cleaner and better transport in cities
CIVITAS is one of the most successful EU programmes in promoting innovative solutions for sustainable development. It aims to contribute to the goals of the European Union's Transport White Paper by capitalising on the results of CIVITAS and creating an effective "value chain" for urban mobility innovation. CIVITAS SATELLITE (Support Action Towards Evaluation, Learning, Local Innovation, Transfer & Excellence) coordinates and supports the efforts of the current and upcoming CIVITAS 2020 projects.
SATELLITE facilitates cooperation among all stakeholders involved in CIVITAS Innovation Action (IA) and Research and Innovation Action (RIA) projects, recruits new stakeholders such as businesses, and seeks out, collects, analyses and disseminates information so that cities can lower barriers and hesitations to implement the effective, innovative solutions identified by the CIVITAS community.
