The representatives of the CIVITAS SUMP-PLUS project, co-financed by the European Commission, have met in Lucca on February 12, 13 and 14 2020.
CIVITAS SUMP-PLUS is helping towns and cities of all sizes and at varying stages of development to enhance their SUMP and SULP implementation process and address diverse mobility challenges. It will achieve this by working in co-creation laboratories in six cities – Antwerp (Belgium), Alba Iulia (Romania), Greater Manchester (UK), Klaipeda (Lithuania), Lucca (Italy), and Platanias (Greece).
The labs further along on their SUMP journey will test new, innovative solutions for more efficient and sustainable freight and passenger transport.
The participants, on February 13, within the day dedicated to the comparison of good practices related to sustainable mobility, livability of urban centers and ecological freight transport carried out a site visit in Piazza Santa Maria and Piazza San Frediano. Leaded by the City Councellor Gabriele Bove, the delegation had the opportunity to see in person the demonstration activities carried out by Lucca Municipality, with LIFE ASPIRE project (RFID antenna and load/unload bays equipped with sensors).
