Reimagining Urban Mobility Across Europe

Organised by CARNET (an initiative coordinated by CIT UPC) with the support of EIT Urban Mobility, the three Citython 2020 editions brought together a total of over 150 international students and experts from different areas—from data scientists and developers to urban planners— to develop the solutions that will help to shape the future of our cities. Read more about how we tackled the urban mobility challenges the cities of Barcelona, Lublin, and Amsterdam face here.

Safe Transport and Commuting

CARNET is involved in the FutureMob project, which aims to promote healthier mobility habits through reward programmes as a strategy to motivate citizens and companies to make these changes. The project, funded by the EIT Urban Mobility in the framework of the EIT’s Crisis Response Initiative, develops these strategies in the European cities of Debreçen, Hungary, and the Metropolitan Area of Barcelona (AMB), Spain.

The Project that Is Reconfiguring Public Space Across Europe

In the current times, where cities are facing new mobility restrictions, ensuring social distancing is still an issue for the majority of countries to avoid a larger spread of COVID-19. In this context, the teams participating in the FURNISH project, have deployed their designs onto the streets of their cities with the goal of mitigating the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic.
