    The proposed action: URBAN DESIGN GOVERNANCE, to be known as Urban Maestro, looks at the ways European cities are being designed and financed, focusing on innovative ways of generating and implementing urban spatial quality: the “soft power” modalities of urban design governance. Soft power modalities refer to those approaches where public authorities act in an informal capacity as enablers or brokers rather than through formal regulatory or direct investment powers. Examples include multi-stakeholder design platforms, bouwmeesters, city-architects, quality negotiation mechanisms and the like. The action will focus on these processes and how they are being used to shape cities through means short of regulation, direct design or development. To explore these issues the work programme will seek to map out the design governance landscape in jurisdictions across Europe (hard and soft / formal and informal); burrow down into their workings via a series of pan-European workshops; contrast experiences in Europe to international practices elsewhere; use the initiative to build a long-term network for sharing best practice; and support policy uptake focussed on the drive to urban quality across the continent, and globally. Urban Maestro will strengthen the global understanding of innovative urban design governance. It will contribute to accelerate the realization of the New Urban Agenda and the 2030 Agenda in the EU, and reinforce the global urban debate on qualitative aspects of urban development.

    The main objective of EMPOWER is to substantially reduce the use of conventionally fueled vehicles (CFV) in cities by influencing the mobility behaviour of CFV drivers and users towards fundamental change. To achieve this objective EMPOWER will create a set of tools for industry, policy makers and employers. These will empower them beyond the lifespan of this project to understand, help choose and successfully implement ‘positive’ evidence-based and cost-effective policy interventions, based on new and innovative mobility services, and in the context of already existing infrastructure, policy and measures. EMPOWER will reduce the use of CFV by: shifting trips to other modes/other vehicle types, promoting sharing and self-organisation and reducing demand overall e.g. through remote access to services. Undesirable impacts from CFV use will be reduced by: shifting CFV use to outside peak times and diversions to avoid particular areas/routes. The research will be multidisciplinary and involve: social science research with the public, 4 living lab experiments and 7 City demonstrators which will be chosen through an open 'bidding' process. The EMPOWER concept will be used in practice by: City stakeholders being able (through a software tool) to choose positive policy options based on their expected impacts and deliver incentives and social network sharing schemes to individuals using software. The innovation outputs of EMPOWER include an EMPOWER Toolkit to support industry, policy makers and employers to understand, choose and implement positive policy interventions. The Toolkit includes: new mobility services to provide innovative positive policy measures, new evidence on behavioural responses and impacts from positive incentives, improved organisational models for successful implementation of positive policy measures and innovation in the evaluation methodology for new mobility services. We expect at least 1 million persons to be impacted by EMPOWER.

    FUTURE-HORIZON will, with various actions clustered in five WPs, support ERTRAC, future Horizon Europe partnerships and the European Commission in identifying future research needs for upcoming R&I programmes to further facilitate a sustainable and efficient road transport system in Europe, while also extensively fostering international cooperation. By doing an elaborate analysis of the first Horizon Europe calls and matching these topics with the ERTRAC roadmaps in WP1 future research priorities and current research gaps will be identified. The regular update of ERTRAC roadmaps in the case of need is a continuous task that will also be done within WP1. A link to the predecessor project FUTURE-RADAR will be established, deepening further the understanding of the European research landscape, linking the findings to roadmaps, partnerships, projects, literature and patents. The purpose of WP2 will be the exploration of opportunities for complementing the strategic planning of the well-established RTR ecosystem in Europe by analyses, benchmark and collaboration with other relevant world regions, focusing predominantly on North and South America, Asia and Africa. First RTR strategies in established markets will be mapped and then compared to European RTR strategies. From these findings targets, programmes and achievements will be derived to complement the ERTRAC roadmaps, creating an international perspective for them. In WP3 the focus will mainly lie on emerging economies. The implementation actions will provide platforms to develop capacities and capabilities to develop, implement and operate innovative sustainable mobility solutions. Partnerships among transport stakeholders across partner and European countries will be fostered and a catalogue of implementation concepts for sustainable mobility will be developed and fed back to ERTRAC. Dissemination, focusing on ERTRAC visibility and publications, will be done in WP4. Project coordination will be done in WP5.

    RESCCUE aims to deliver a framework enabling city resilience assessment, planning and management by integrating into software tools new knowledge related to the detailed water-centred modelling of strategic urban services performance into a comprehensive resilience platform. These tools will assess urban resilience from a multisectorial approach, for current and future climate change scenarios and including multiple hazards. The project will review and integrate in the general framework existing options to assess climate change impacts and urban systems vulnerabilities allowing to assess multisectorial dependencies under multiple climate change scenarios. An adaptation strategies portfolio, including climate services, ecosystem-based approaches and resource efficiency measures will be incorporated as key components of the deployment strategy. The possible approaches will be ranked by their cost-efficiency in terms of CAPEX and OPEX to evaluate their benefits potential. This will enable city managers and urban system operators deciding the optimal investments to cope with future situations. The validation platform is formed by 3 EU cities (Barcelona, Lisboa and Bristol) that will allow testing the innovative tools developed in the project and disseminating their results among other cities belonging to major international networks. In terms of market potential, RESCCUE will generate large potential benefits, in terms of avoided costs during and after emergencies, that will contribute to their large-scale deployment. The structure of the consortium will guarantee the market uptake of the results, as the complete value chain needed is already represented. The project is coordinated by Aquatec, a large consultancy firm part of a multinational company focused on securing and recovering resources, and includes partners from the research domain, operation of critical urban systems, city managers and international organisations devoted to urban resilience.
