On 29 July 2020, EPOMM (European Platform on Mobility Management) published its latest e-update on the topic of improving conditions for cycling, based on experience with the CIVITAS Handshake project.
The theme is described as follows:
Policy makers, practitioners and academics across the globe seek detailed information on urban policies and, importantly, a better understanding of how to effectively emulate policies that have been successful elsewhere. We know from research and practice that policies are continuously borrowed, translated, and customised, but there is still little empirical evidence on what positively influences the learning and ‘policy transfer’ process related to cycling. The focus of this EPOMM e-update is on the Horizon 2020 project CIVITAS Handshake, and how it supports the implementation of policies to improve conditions for cycling as an everyday mode of transport.
