Valencia shares its advances in urban mobility and road safety with a delegation of Dutch students

The students attended a presentation on the SUITS project (Supporting Urban Integrated Transport Systems: Transferable tools for authorities), financed by the European Horizon 2020 programme, in which the City Council of Valencia and ITENE participate together with entities and companies from eight other European countries.
Application sectors: Transportation and logistics
Research area:

A delegation made up of 20 second-year students of spatial development and transport management from the University of Applied Sciences "Windesheim Flevoland" in the Netherlands visited the municipal facilities of Tabacalera today accompanied by staff from the City Council of Valencia, Las Naves and the Packaging, Transport and Logistics Research Center (ITENE). 

The visit began with a talk in the traffic control room given by municipal officials who explained in detail the technological innovations of this service, located in the building of Tabacalera, which have consolidated it as a reference at national and international level. 

During the tour, the mobility technician from Las Naves Ángel Navarro and the transport and mobility specialist from ITENE Mireia Calvo gave a talk to inform the Dutch delegation in detail about the SUITS project (Supporting Urban Integrated Transport Systems) project: Transferable tools for authorities), financed by the European Horizon 2020 programme and in which the City Council of Valencia and ITENE participate together with entities and companies from Italy, Portugal, the United Kingdom, Greece, Lithuania, Germany, Belgium, and Ireland. 

This project (2017-2021) aims to design new procedures to help improve the efficiency of urban mobility plans, as well as the exchange of synergies between the participating European cities (West Midlands region in the United Kingdom; Stuttgart in Germany; Kalamaria in Greece; Rome and Turin in Italy; Palanga in Lithuania, and Alba Iulia in Romania). 

The university group was interested in the benefits for the city of improving the efficiency of the current Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan in implementing more sustainable mobility measures at both individual and public level. As explained by Navarro, these measures would help reduce carbon dioxide emissions and traffic congestion in the city, as well as improve road safety, among other key aspects.

In addition, Calvo and Navarro have highlighted the importance of training municipal staff in the project to broaden their knowledge and improve decision-making when promoting sustainable mobility policies.
