The objective of the Urban Manufacturing Project is to ensure that collaborative makerspaces thrive.  We achieve this through identifying best practice, testing policy approaches and supporting our cities/regions in creating receptive conditions. Our hope is that we will demonstrate the impact that cooperative facilities can have on innovation and establish a European network of advocates.  WHAT ARE COLLABORATIVE MAKERSPACES?  Collaborative makerspaces take many forms, but common to all is the idea of producing physical objects through cooperation. This sharing can occur during ideas generation or fabrication and is most profound when different sectors come together.  The benefits of working in this way are numerous and include: new and improved products; an enhanced sense of community; increased mutual knowledge; quicker and more comprehensive solutions; and the tapping of latent potential. This leads to more effective and far-reaching innovation. Examples of collaborative makerspaces include Fab Labs, Open Innovation Centres, Living Labs and Cross-Sector Incubators.  Collaborative makerspaces are typically located within urban environments, so understanding the ecosystem – for example the interdependencies between education, policy makers and manufacturers – is of fundamental importance. Through nourishing these connected elements, cooperative facilities can flourish.  Through our partnership, we are analysing the effect of policies across seven related themes: STEAM Communities Ecosystems Funding to support makerspaces Results of investment in makerspaces Routes to market Enterprise We develop our understanding through a process of knowledge sharing.

TRAM project is designed to strengthen the urban dimension of regional and local policymaking, contributing to the implementation of EU Transport White Paper, Urban Agenda and the EU 2020 strategy and facilitating the shift to low carbon economy. In this sense, TRAM project contributes to the development of a competitive, resource-efficient and low-carbon oriented European transport system by improving the efficacy of regional and local policies on urban mobility of EU 5 partners which will benefit from cooperation by the exchange of experience and the identification of measures to be included in their urban mobility policies.
The project defines and designs a large road junction as a precious connection from a morphological, environmental and urban point of view.

Innovations in Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans for low-carbon urban transport InnovaSUMP project aims at introducing: New innovations, enhancements and advances in preparation, elaboration, consultation, adoption, implementation, evaluation and monitoring of Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans (SUMPs), based on the EU established methodology (Clean transport, Urban transport; Eltis), for sustainable low-carbon urban transport and mobility policies and measures promotion, funding, implementation and enhancement.Policies and measures that promote the use of and investments in sustainable mobility solutions, can be included in SUMPs, i.e.: high quality PT systems, alternative/clean fuels, electric vehicles, smart ticketing, urban freight logistics, active modes of cycling and walking, new forms of car ownership and use, access control, congestion charging, fair and efficient pricing, ICT mobile applications, ITS transport telematics infrastructure, FTS/DRT, Intermodality improvements for ‘seamless’ travel, links with Smart Cities mobility initiatives, etc; including stakeholder engagement, public participation, consultation procedures, social media applications, policy formulation and adoption by city and transport authorities, polycentric SUMP approach for regional and district authorities (PolySUMP). These measures are some examples that can be implemented by cities.Policy and institutional implications for advances in implementing and funding innovative sustainable mobility solutions.Contribution of SUMP process innovations to: urban regeneration, social inclusion, equity considerations, economy, competitiveness, effective PPPs, citizen society empowerment, cohesion, links with the ‘Urban Mobility Package 2013’, links with SEAP, mid-term review of White paper and Europe2020 targets.Enhancements to SUMP Methodology: Promotion of low-carbon mobility solutions, Travel behaviour research and potential user response analyses, Integrating pricing and financing measures, Planning for visitors at tourism destinations, campaigns, assessments, ITS and ICT Applications.

The Cyclewalk Project aims at supporting the shift from car usage to cycling and walking mobility patterns over shorter distances, improving the accessibility for pedestrians and cyclists. CYCLEWALK will also contribute to the transition to a more sustainable alternative for urban mobility. The partnership is composed by seven partners from six European countries (Romania, Italy, Slovenia, Holland, Lithuania, Austria). The project will introduce quality criteria for proper walking and cycling infrastructure in the policy instruments and projects, through the following activities: study visits, complemented with assessment walking and cycling tours;technical working tables with stakeholders;training and full technical and scientific advise provided by the Urban Cycling Institute to technical offices, regional experts and universities.
The practice established a permanent regional cooperation for increasing capacity of the local Municipalities and facilitating the deployment of their SUMPs

The EU is acknowledged as one of the most urbanized areas in the world, characterized by a relatively dense urban network consisting mainly of medium sized cities. The trend of urbanisation is increasing and the consequent pressure on peri-urban areas has many impacts at environmental, social and economic level: increasing soil consumption, loss of ecosystem services and reduced resilience towards climate change effects, soil speculation. All this has negative impact on economic activities, public health and life quality. Tackling natural heritage protection in peri-urban areas becomes crucial to guarantee that natural resources are not compromised by urbanization; nevertheless, natural heritage protection is often seen as a constraint to economic growth, making the two concepts antithetic. PROSPERA’s overall objective is to improve regional policies on protection and promotion of natural heritage by tackling loss of ecosystem services and improve sustainable development in peri-urban areas threatened by urban-sprawl, with the ultimate aim of preventing biodiversity loss, soil consumption and further degradation of natural assets, by in parallel leveraging on these challenges as a way to favor regional attractiveness and economic sustainable development. To this end, 7 PPs from 5 EU countries (IT-EL-SE-BE-HU) have agreed on 3 leverages as means for a shift from the traditional perspective seeing urban/rural as a dichotomy to a new perspective, where protection of natural heritage fosters economic development in peri-urban areas: 1. Wise governance 2. Eco-lo(gi)cal value chains 3. Sustainable PPP (public-private partnership) PROSPERA PPs will identify at least 15 Good Practices from 5 regions and, after a process of interregional learning based on Study Visits and knowledge exchange sessions, they will define regional Action Plans to improve 5 policy instruments.
