Project Description


CIV_PLUS_II_CAPITAL_logo_full_neg_rgbCIVITAS CAPITAL is the latest phase of CIVITAS, an acronym of CIty, VITAlity and Sustainability, and an initiative devoted to implement sustainable, clean and efficient mobility measures. The mission of CIVITAS CAPITAL is to contribute significantly to the goals of the EU’s Transport White Paper, by capitalizing systematically on the results achieved in the last 11 years by CIVITAS and creating an effective “value chain” for urban mobility innovation. CAPITAL initiates and supports a mainstreaming process of CIVITAS principles, based on a strengthened community of stakeholders. CAPITAL helps CIVITAS to build the bridge towards a more advanced identity within Horizon 2020.


CAPITAL strategic goals are:

  • Consolidate existing knowledge and lessons learnt and provide recommendations for successful continuation of CIVITAS
  •  Create a dynamic knowledge centre as a means of structured dialogue and exchange among CIVITAS stakeholders
  •  Facilitate a structured transfer of CIVITAS measures based on practical experiences
  • Establish and manage national/regional CIVITAS networks serving as delivery channels and activation mechanism of stakeholders
