Project title: Integrated REgional Action Plan For Innovative, Sustainable and LOw CaRbon Mobility
Duration: 48 months (01/2017 – 12/2020)
Description: REFORM is a project co-funded by the INTERREG Europe programme of the European Union. The project aims at increasing the number of local authorities implementing a Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan (SUMP) in four European regions: Central Macedonia (Greece), Emilia-Romagna (Italy), Greater Manchester (UK) and Parkstad Limburg (NL).
In order to ease the transition towards low-carbon alternatives for mobility on their territory, the partners are developing guidance materials and organizing a series of dedicated events to help their municipalities in the preparation of their SUMP. One of the distinctive aspects of REFORM lies in the central role given to the Regions to encourage the adoption of SUMPs by local authorities, including small towns and medium-sized cities. This will be achieved, in particular, through the improvement of the Regional Operational Programs which will support, fund and diffuse the concept of SUMP as the main planning instrument for shifting mobility towards a low carbon intensive mobility pattern.
