Use of ICT (Information Communication Technologies) for collecting traffic data and communicating with passengers as tools to support Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans (SUMP).

On March the 2nd the Centre for Research and Technology Hellas along with the Region of Central Macedonia organize an event to introduce best practices and ICT tools used in view of collecting data and involving passengers in the formulation of the Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan.

The event is organized in the framework of REFORM project - Integrated Regional Action Plan for Innovative, Sustainable and Low Carbon Mobility – funded by the European Regional Development Fund within INTERREG EUROPE program.

REFORM aims to ease the transition towards low-carbon alternatives for mobility by developing guidance materials and organising a series of dedicated events to help local municipalities in the preparation of their SUMP. The expected result is the improvement of Regional Operational Programs in such a way so as to enable funding and, thus, wider implementation of SUMPs by municipalities. This will be achieved via transferring best practices that support all stages of SUMP, from educating the technical staff of municipalities till defining basic priorities that SUMPs should serve at regional level.
