Short Call Abstract:

The ERA-NET Cofund Urban Accessibility and Connectivity (ENUAC) invites researchers, cities, municipalities, businesses, civil society and other stakeholders to build transnational consortia to create challenge-driven innovation and research projects that address the challenges of sustainable urban passenger mobility, freight, transport and connectivity as integral and essential parts of sustainable urban development.

The call is divided into five challenges that need to be responded in order to move towards realising sustainable urban accessibility and connectivity for all, taking advantage of current solutions and approaches. Each proposal must be attached to at least one challenge but may be related to several challenges if it is focussed on a crosscutting subject or an issue that is at the frontier of several.

Challenge 1: Evolving solutions for an integrated approach on sustainable urban physical mobility and transport, land use and digital connectivity

Challenge 2: Develop and support the implementation of innovative mobility systems and services with a potential to contribute to sustainable urban mobility

Challenge 3: Transform and re-organise urban spaces to pave the ground for sustainable urban mobility and accessibility at local level, from the street scale to the district

Challenge 4: Develop effective policy options for achieving a shift towards sustainable urban accessibility and connectivity

Challenge 5: Change behaviours and perspectives towards sustainable urban accessibility and connectivity
