Financed by the EU’s Horizon 2020 programme, CIVITAS ECCENTRIC is a four-year project that develops smart mobility. Within CIVITAS ECCENTRIC, the cities of Madrid, Stockholm, Munich, Turku and Ruse are working together to overcome challenges related to mobility in suburban districts and achieving city logistics that is clean, silent, and CO2 emission-free - two important areas that have historically received less attention in urban mobility policies.
