The SUMI project, lasting 24 months, provides technical support for the identification and the collection of a set of sustainable urban mobility indicators in 50 European large and small urban areas.
Main project activities are related to:
· providing rigorous and consistent methodologies for acquisition, harmonisation and analysis of data; this includes the definition of a “mentor” for each indicator, i.e. a reference expert capable to sort out all related technical issues;
· giving technical support to the urban areas and systematically collect their hands-on experiences; appointed “urban area coaches” have the responsibility to establish direct links between the project consortium and the urban areas and help city administrations to gather the needed data;
· carrying on consultation, capacity building and dissemination actions addressed to subjects both inside and outside of the project;
· preparing realistic, harmonised and sound recommendations for further improvement and extension of the indicator system.
