2016 - 2020

Within CIVITAS ECCENTRIC, the cities of Madrid, Stockholm, Munich, Turku and Ruse are working together to tackle the challenges of mobility in suburban districts and clean, silent and CO2 free city logistics – two important areas that have historically received less attention in urban mobility policies.

European cities have created liveable and attractive city centres, but there remains a conflict between providing high quality public space and meeting the accessibility requirements for freight deliveries. Also, higher car usage in suburban areas has previously been largely unaddressed.

To address this situation, CIVITAS ECCENTRIC will demonstrate the potential and replicability of integrated and inclusive urban planning approaches, innovative policies, and emerging technologies in five “Living Lab” areas. Clean vehicles and fuels will be tested, new regulations and services formulated, and consolidation solutions developed in close partnership with the private sector. This will contribute to meeting the targets of the Transport White Paper in terms of air quality, energy use and road casualties – and to achieving CO2-free city logistics by 2030.
