Researchers from five major European capital cities: Berlin, Copenhagen, London, Paris, and Vienna, have launched a new project, CREATE, studying urban mobility patterns to identify the factors influencing mobility patterns. The project aims to support the transition to more sustainable forms of transportation by analyzing a wealth of mobility related data to understand the main factors behind the duration, extent, and intensity of traffic congestion.

Through their efforts, the project’s group of researchers, representing a number of institutions from the partner cities, aim to support cities and in three stages of development from cities with car-supportive policies undergoing economic growth (stage 1), to those suffering from the problems associated with increased car use (stage 2), to those cities undertaking measures to curb transportation-related emissions and become more livable (stage 3). Through a variety of peer-learning and knowledge transfer activities, the project will facilitate shared learning and cooperation between the cities as they work together to create future solutions.

The project has received funding under the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation program and will be coordinated by University College London and will continue to the summer of 2018.
