Priority topics for the PAC • SUMP and strategy planning: Linking SUMPs with SEAP to further integrate electromobility. Links between cities and Member States for full roll-out of local/regional SUMPs. Also, conditioning EU grants in urban mobility with pre-existence/deployment of a SUMP? • ITS/ICT: Information to users and payment (standards and interoperability) • Demand management systems, ITS and data mining. Suggestion from EC to think about recommendation towards local centralized dashboards for data and indicators in the urban transport system. • Clean/alternatively-fueled vehicles and infrastructure. Questions related to governance, infrastructure investment and public procurement. • New mobility services (i.e Mobility as a Service), public transport on-demand or sharing services. • First and last mile logistics. • Safety of vulnerable road users, in particular cyclists. Interest to address vulnerable road users when deploying connected vehicles.
Expectation from DG Move (2) • On SUMP activities, suggestion by the EC to extract policy recommendations on the priority topics from current/recently finished CIVITAS projects. Possible role for Advisory Groups in this context. • Suggestion to meet the PAC members if present during next SUMP Conference in Dubrovnik (22/23 March). • Suggestion by EC to get the PAC more involved in International EU/US activities by sharing knowledge. • Suggestion by EC to liaise with Bulc’s newly appointed cabinet member that works on urban mobility , Dunja Perko
Advisory Groups • Four CIVITAS Advisory Groups (AGs) will be established to ensure a link between CIVITAS 2020 activities and European level urban mobility policies. • The groups will consist of a mix of selected external experts, city representatives, and representatives from the RIA projects. • Close links will be established between the AGs and the Political Advisory Committee. The PAC and the AGs will enter into a dialogue, where specific policy issues can be brought forward by the PAC to the AGs to explore and provide recommendations. Topics of the AG activities will be defined on a yearly basis (from Forum to Forum) in close coordination with the EC and the PAC. • The AGs will work towards concrete outputs, such as policy recommendations, which will be documented for the EC in internal annual reports.
Thematic Groups: Integrated approachwith the Political Advisory Committee • Questions and missions for TGs are defined at PAC meeting taking place at Forum. TGs work on PAC request over the next year • TG members will act as “sherpas” to Political Advisory Committee members • 1 sherpa per TG at least, in Q1 2017 • PAC can address questions related to concrete urban transport take-up challenges across the themes of the TGs • TGs will support PAC with information based on project results, research or discussions
