Call for take-up of activities in the field of sustainable urban mobilities


The CIVITAS CAPITAL project has been set up to systematically capitalize on the results of CIVITAS and create an effective value chain for urban mobility solutions. It places specific emphasis on supporting the transfer of successfully implemented CIVITAS measures to (take-up) cities across Europe. CIVITAS CAPITAL will open its first in a series of four calls for take-up activities in the field of sustainable urban mobility on 28 February 2014.


The call will offer a total of 120.000 Euros in co-funding to support the take-up of sustainable urban mobility measures related to the CIVITAS thematic area. Between 3 and 5 take-up activities per take-up level are expected to receive co-funding between €1.000 and €10.000 Euros. 


CIVITAS CAPITAL is seeking proposals for the following take-up levels: 


  1. ‘Being inspired’: Up to 50% co-funding for study tours, workshops or similar activities at the initial take-up phase;
  2. ‘Structural dialogue’: Up to 50% co-funding for concrete staff exchange between take-up and donor cities;
  3. ‘Studies’: Up to 50% co-funding for evaluation (long-term; impact and process), feasibility studies, etc.;
  4. ‘Systematic transfer’: Up to 30% co-funding forfeasibility studies leading towards pilot demonstration and implementation.


The call will be open for five weeks. The deadline for electronic submissions of applications will be 4 April 2014. Following an evaluation by the CIVITAS CAPITAL Management Committee and final approval by the European Commission, the co-funded take-up activities are expected to start by the end of May 2014.


Applications may be submitted by individual or teamed-up organisations that have not been/are involved in projects already funded by the CIVITAS Initiative. Organisations applying for funding need to be established in an EU Member State or Albania, the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, Iceland, Israel, Kosovo, Montenegro, Norway, Serbia, Switzerland or Turkey.
