CIVITAS SATELLITE aims to help cities gain better access to innovative solutions to properly address transport challenges they are facing. Cities, as the closest link to citizens, are the focal point of SATELLITE’s efforts, with an emphasis on international cooperation as an essential aspect for cities to function as “activity hubs” in the global economy. Cross-project coordination, exchange mechanisms and capacity-building provide cities with access to the latest innovations resulting from European urban mobility research, as well as helping city practitioners to gain the necessary skills to apply innovations in their local contexts. Additional exchange activities and community building, where cities can learn from their peers, lays the foundation for these solutions to be applied in practice.
CIVITAS SATELLITE is coordinated by POLIS.
