Introduction to the Project

Mobility is changing. Urbanisation, climate change and digitalisation challenge how people and goods move from A to B. To cope with these challenges and to meet global climate targets, urban and inter-urban areas need to become well-connected multimodal and multi-usage nodes for smart and clean mobility. Despite the success of early pilot projects, there is still a gap when it comes to transferring innovations to different contexts, cities or regions. One the one hand, living labs, testbeds, demonstration pilots do not always reflect urban reality as they were designed specifically for testing purposes. On the other hand, these solutions were implemented based on the requirements and needs of one particular city, district or area. City planners and project developers, therefore, face the question how the results of mobility pilot projects can be used in order to implement smart city strategies and community initiatives more efficiently, faster and on a larger geographic scale? RECIPROCITY will provide answers.

Project Objectives

The project’s goal is to initiate and support replication projects in at least 20 cities and municipalities varying in size, location, degree of urbanisation and mobility demand. They will be equipped with the tools, knowledge and contacts to accelerate the process of replicating innovative mobility solutions. The consortium will organise coordination and support actions along the process from idea to implementation to nurture replication. Using a four-staged
replication framework, the project will help cities and municipalities to:

  • IDENTIFY the right innovative mobility solutions together with all relevant mobility stakeholders and citizens;
  • LEARN about requirements, processes and skills needed to put these innovative mobility solutions into action;
  • ACCELERATE the implementation of these solutions through guidance and matchmaking for business and finance;
  • SHARE and build upon lessons learned and best practices to enable fast replication on a wider scale.

ERRIN's Role

ERRIN is leading the activities on sharing and replicating policy and regulation.

Regulations on local, national and EU-level have the potential to enable upscaling and replicating innovative mobility solutions. At the same time, they are currently among the key barriers as they inhibit a fast rollout of innovative mobility solutions. Therefore, RECIPROCITY focuses on informing policy and regulation with regard to how they can ideally support these processes. In addition, continuous knowledge exchange and information flow between cities and municipalities are crucial to fast-track the process of replicating successful mobility innovations in the future

RECIPROCITY, thus, will devote particular efforts towards knowledge capturing and sharing: 

  • Recommendations for policy & regulation
  • Information & Communication Platform
  • Collection & dissemination of best practices

  • Gaia Marotta
  • Project Manager
  • Ryan Titley
  • Director of Projects

Benefit & Links

  • Opportunity to connect and exchange with other cities around sustainable mobility.
  • Possibility to participate in planned activities (e.g. events, workshops, training).
  • Chance to bring in own use cases to be considered within the project.
  • Access to services provided by the project (e.g. business & financial services).
