Energy Agency

Innovations for Managing Sustainable Urban Accessibility

Deadline: 15 September
Urban transport of goods and people accounts for a significant share of greenhouse gas emissions and therefore requires a significant reduction, especially in a highly urbanized continent such as Europe. Innovative solutions to accelerate the transition to climate neutrality and increased attractiveness are in demand by cities of all types and sizes, which want to redistribute the city's limited space in favor of sustainable modes of transport and qualitative public space. Dealing with different types of accessibility in the city is an important part of such a process, and the focus of this call.
