MMOVE Interreg IVC
MMOVE (Mobility Management Over Europe) was an Interreg IVC project which aimed to influence regional policy-making by providing best practice solutions to help cities make the best use of their infrastructure and services in the area of traffic management. The MMOVE project formally came to an end on 31 January 2012. The project had 11 partners and funded:
Identifying and exchanging best practices, for example encouraging alternative means of transport and intelligent transport systems.
Study visits looking at best practices relating to a/communication and awareness campaigns; b/ parking traffic control measures c/ collective and public transport measures.
Transferability assessment reports in order to identify critical success factors. Each partner can assess the transferability of one good practice from their city.
Improving awareness of cheap and effective mobility management methods.
The 11 partners were:
- Reggio Emilia (Lead partner), Marche Region (Italy)
- Brighton & Hove (UK)
- Girona (Spain)
- Molndal, Varberg (Sweden)
- Ulm (Germany)
- Kavala, Volos (Greece)
- Brasov (Romania)
- Razlog (Bulgaria)
The main output in the last semester for Brighton & Hove was the production by Sustrans of a Bicibus Transferability report looking at how we might introduce the Reggio Emilia cycle train concept to Brighton & Hove, and more generally, the conditions necessary to organise a successful cycle train.
The Bicibus had been put forward as one example of best practice by our Italian partner city Regio Emilia. The Bicibus or ‘cycling bus’ encourages and assists children to cycle to and from school. It works in a similar way to walking buses used at some Brighton & Hove schools with a set cycle route with regular pick up points where children can join at specific times. Once they’ve joined Bicibus, children ride to and from school together under the supervision of adult cyclists.
CAPTURE project Interreg IIIC
The project aimed to use the network to help optimise business innovation, growth and regional economic development and stimulate knowledge-based companies to help create higher value jobs. The project , which was managed by Brighton & Hove City Council, finished in December 2007, and had a total budget of 587,800 euros partially funded through ERDF money.
There were eight study visits in the project, more than the six originally planned, as these proved more popular than the staff exchanges. The first study visit was held in Brighton & Hove on 30 November 2005 and the others were in Vigo in Spain, Jyvaskyla in Finland, Kavala in Greece, Girona in Spain, Heraklion in Greece, Klaipeda in Lithuania and the last one, an IT Incubation Masterclass in Trinec, Czech Republic in May 2007. The final dissemination event took place in Brussels on 16-17 October 2007.
Wel_hops: Welfare Housing policies for Senior Citizens Interreg IIIC
Wel_hops was an Interreg IIIC project aimed at promoting independent living and improved housing conditions for older people across Europe through improved housing design. Brighton & Hove was the UK partner in this project. The lead partner was the Emilia Romagna Economic Development Agency in Italy and the project also included partners from Sweden, Hungary and Spain.
The project ran until 2007 and produced a good practice guide on accessible housing design focussed on older people. A dvd and cd-rom accompanies the guide which is free of charge from the Housing strategy department or by phoning (01273) 293055.
