SUMPs-Up Innovation Pilot Pool

By News Editor / Updated: 08 Jun 2017


The first round of applications to join the
 Innovation Pilot Pool has now closed.

Thank you to all applicants. Please contact
with any questions.

The Innovation Pilot Pool (IPP) will form a select group of transport and urban mobility planning practitioners who will develop innovative tools and services to help SUMP development in European cities.

The IPP will enable the creation of a community of 100 transport professionals who, with SUMPs-Up funding and through participating in its learning activities – known as SUMP Learning Programmes (SLPs) – will test and apply SUMP approaches, tools and methodologies in transport planning practice in real conditions at the local or regional levels and will provide comments and feedback on their experience to improve the tested tools and methodologies.

Most of the IPP participants selected via the first CIVITAS SUMPs-Up IPP call will join the Expert Group. They will be part of the group for six months and their activities will focus on:

  • Tools and services for initiating a SUMP;
  • Tools and services for initiating a SUMP tailor-made for small and medium-sized cities.

An additional 10 IPP participants will be selected via the first CIVITAS SUMPs-Up IPP call to join the Leadership Group and will assist CIVITAS SUMPs-Up for three years.

Future funding calls

The remaining IPP participants will be selected via similar calls for applications that will open in 2018 and 2019 and will focus on tools and services for developing a SUMP and tools and services for SUMP implementation respectively.
