Component 3: EXCHANGE OF EXPERIENCES DEDICATED TO THE IDENTIFICATION AND ANALYSIS OF GOOD PRACTICES

The objective of this component is to identify the most effective practices for sustainable urban mobility and greater potential for transferability, as well as drafting the Implementation Plan that describes the process of implementing these best practices.

The base of this component is determined by the development of regional studies of sustainable urban mobility in each of the areas of the 15 partners involved in the project. Each partner collects information on the best practices in a thematic area related to sustainable mobility within its region and develops three studies: the first one related to electrical mobility, the second one related to mobility based on bio-fuels and a third one involving other means of mobility.

Then, Thematic Workshops are held in order to present and analyze the information collected in the different regional studies, where the best practices regarding each thematic of sustainable mobility (electrical, bio-fuels and others) are identified. Equally, Interregional Visits are also celebrated in each of the thematic (two months after each of the Workshops) in order to visually identify and acquire a firsthand knowledge of those practices that are being developed. Reports of the Workshops and the Interregional Visits are created by the partner responsible for their organisation with the results obtained from them.

Once finalised the three Workshops and the three Interregional Visits, all of them with their respective reports, it is held an Interregional Forum, where partners agree the contents of the Guide of Best Practices (distributed among the partners and stakeholders), assuming the principles of effectiveness and transferability of policies and the different practices identified in sustainable urban mobility.

Finally, each partner organises a meeting with local stakeholders to define and concrete the Implementation Plan that each entity prepares two months after the meeting. These Implementation Plans allow the application of the knowledge and experience gained along the project.
