Cities invited to apply for study visits on SUMPs

By Lewis Macdonald / Updated: 28 Oct 2015

The EU-funded BUMP (Boosting Urban Mobility Plans) project is seeking applications to an open call for study visits.

Technical officers and political decision-makers working in transport from small to medium-sized European local authorities can choose to visit one of 17 cities, which are best practice examples of Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan (SUMP) development.

Visiting cities will have the opportunity to investigate the SUMP concept and understand the support package offered by BUMP to cities, and exchange with their peers in a host city.

Host cities will present their SUMP and explain the methodologies they used, the solutions they adopted, and the impacts they expect. Site visits showing the implementation of measures to solve problems will also be included.

To be eligible, applicant cities must be located in an EU Member State or in Norway, Switzerland, Serbia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro, the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, Albania or Turkey and have a population of between 40,000 and 350,000 inhabitants.

They must also declare their interest in developing a new SUMP or revising their existing one. The application deadline is 20 November.
