Electric Mobility Useful Links

The CIVITAS DESTINATIONS project is a 4-year project funded by the Horizon2020 programme of the European Union. The project consortium consists of 7 highly touristic insular cities in six European islands (Funchal in Madeira, Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, Valletta in Malta, Portoferraio and Rio Marina in Elba, Rethymno in Crete and Limassol in Cyprus) representing partners from 9 EU member states and has established links with China, the fastest growing outbound tourism market in the world.
CIVITAS is a network of cities for cities dedicated to cleaner, better transport in Europe and beyond.  Since it was launched by the European Commission in 2002, the CIVITAS Initiative has tested and implemented over 800 measures and urban transport solutions as part of demonstration projects in more than 80 Living Lab cities Europe-wide.
The knowledge garnered through these practical experiences is complemented, and supported, by a number of research and innovation projects (ECCENTRICPORTIS and DESTINATIONS), also run under CIVITAS. These research projects look at ways of building a more resource efficient and competitive transport system in Europe.
CIVITAS offers practitioners opportunities to see innovative transport solutions being developed and deployed first-hand, and learn from peers and experts working in the field. CIVITAS nurtures political commitment, new marketable solutions, and offers funding and knowledge exchange with a view to creating growth and better connected, more sustainable transport modes.
The project works on 10 thematic areas, related to sustainable transport mobility covering: Car-Independent LifestylesClean Fuels & VehiclesCollective Passenger TransportDemand Management StrategiesIntegrated PlanningMobility ManagementPublic InvolvementSafety & SecurityTransport TelematicsUrban Freight Logistics.
