Solutions For
Low-Carbon Urban Mobility

Reducing transport emissions is a crucial challenge for greening central Europe`s economy and also a major goal of the EU Green Deal. In particular, urban mobility requires an integrated response. Smart and green solutions have to be introduced in functional urban areas (FUA), taking account of interactions between “urban cores” and their “hinterlands”. In central Europe, many FUAs face similar challenges when greening their mobility. They need integrated approaches to address the vast diversity of territorial aspects (from e.g. energy demand, air pollution, congestion and urban logistics to public transport services, mobility behaviour and good governance) and to achieve net zero GHG emissions. In all this, digitalisation and novel technologies show significant potentials to help greening the future of urban mobility.


Ongoing activities of our projects include:

  • Sustainable urban mobility planning  
  • Quality and efficiency of green, urban public transport services  
  • Smart traffic and mobility management, including commuting solutions  
  • Sustainable multimodal connections between urban and peri-urban areas  
  • Sustainable multimodal urban freight and logistic solutions (including the “last mile”)
  • Reduction of greenhouse gases and other air pollutants from urban transport  
  • Accessibility of urban public transport for everyone, especially for elderly and frail people
