The SPROUT project hold its first webinar on Understanding Urban Mobility Transition

The SPROUT (Sustainable Policy RespOnse to Urban mobility Transition) project presented its first research results on Understanding Urban Mobility Transition in a webinar attended by several European and international cities, held on 24 February 2020.

Taking advantage of the exceptional 3-layer structure of cities cooperating in the project, SPROUT is laying the foundation for the development of a fact-based policy responses to new urban mobility solutions for both passengers and freight transport.

This first of a series of SPROUT webinars presented the specific mobility challenges in the project cities, and compared selected quantitative urban mobility key performance indicators under eight mobility topics. Furthermore, taking a look into the future, it presented the main urban mobility transition drivers to define the evolution of the SPROUT cities’ mobility environment until 2030.

This analysis is the first step towards addressing the four key questions that guide the project:

1. Which parameters will define urban mobility transition?

2. What can we provide to cities as Return On Data (RoD)?

3. How can data be turned into early warnings of change?

4. How can we further strengthen synergies on new mobility services’ data?
