​EU project SUMPORT: kick-off meeting in Trieste

After a two-day meeting in Trieste on 8-9 February, the European project SUMPORT has officially kick started with its partners establishing the grounds for a fruitful cooperation. The project, led by the CEI Executive Secretariat, brings together ten partners from all over the Mediterranean area.

SUMPORT is co-funded by the Interreg MED Programme and will be completed in July 2019, with a total budget of almost 2.4 million EUR. Its aim is to increase the planning capacities on sustainable mobility of port cities through training activities and exchange of experiences. As a result, participating port cities will draft or update their own Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans (SUMPs). Port cities will also implement and simulate pilot actions for testing various types of measures (e.g. bicycles lanes, bike sharing system, carpooling, ICT application for public transport) concerning sustainable mobility with a tangible impact on citizens’ everyday life.

Within SUMPORT, the CEI Executive Secretariat will coordinate all project partners for the timely achievement of the project’s deliverables, organise transnational training sessions on SUMPs and build a e-learning platform on the elaboration of SUMPs to be used during dedicated transferring events.

SUMPORT’s partners are:
  • Central European Initiative-Executive Secretariat and Institute for Transport and Logistics (Italy),
  • City of Durres (Albania),
  • City of Kotor (Montenegro),
  • Valenciaport Foundation and the Foundation of the Valentian Community (Spain),
  • Municipality of Koper (Slovenia),
  • Aristotle University of Thessaloniki and Region of Epirus-Regional Unit of Thesprotia (Greece)
  • City of Limassol (Cyprus)
