Project Description

Modern – MObility, Development and Energy use ReductioN

modern-logoThe “mission” of the MODERN project is “to increase the overall quality of life in the cities, through the reduction of pollution generated by transports, the implementation of energy saving measures, the respect for the environment and the promotion of a less car dependant life-style”. The project outlines a bold package of integrated measures in all the cities of the consortium, providing a wide coverage of all the thematic areas required by the CIVITAS PLUS programme. The middle-size of the cities allows a better integration of the foreseen measures in the overall system of the mobility.

*Co-Funded by the EU – EACI

The project shows ambitious goals, which will have a substantial impact on the state of the mobility in the cities and a good visibility at the European level. The measures of the project outline a good balance between large scale application actions based in existing and commercially available technologies, like in renewal of public transport fleet with clean vehicles, in technological systems for traffic management and info mobility, in promotional campaigns, in access restrictions and interchange systems, with more advanced trials and methodologies, like in energy saving, in alternative fuels, in freight distribution. The first type of actions will be the backbone of the project with a massive impact on the state of the cities, while the second one will contribute to enlarge knowledge, to increase the qualitative level of mobility tools and to throw the basis for future developments.
