And that’s a wrap … ELABORATOR’s 1st Plenary in its Lighthouse city of Issy-les-Moulineaux! Our consortium of 38 partners came together on 31 January and 1 February for two days packed with fun co-creation activities and insightful discussions.

The event was filled with engaging moments and collaborative efforts, reiterating once again the project’s commitment towards designing sustainable urban mobility and fostering climate-neutral cities.

Several workshops were organised by different work package leads, allowing cities and technical partners to brainstorm together crucial aspects of the project: the topics were multifold, ranging from identifying expected impacts to defining the co-design of ELABORATOR’s co-creation toolkits, from reflecting on the project’s storytelling, to reviewing the interventions’ twinning, no stone was left unturned. Indeed, the exchange of perspectives and understanding of needs between Lighthouse and Follower cities was a central theme, allowing them to grow closer together as they gear up for their collaborative journey.

But that’s not all – partners also got to experience first-hand the host city’s planned mobility intervention to make their streets safer for vulnerable road users. The immersive experience provided valuable insights into the real-world impact of ELABORATOR’s pilots, inspiring fellow cities for their own interventions.

The 3-year ELABORATOR project, involving 38 partners, is using a holistic approach for planning, designing, implementing and deploying innovations and interventions for sustainable urban mobility. These may include smart enforcement tools, space redesign and dynamic allocation, shared services, and integration of active and green modes of transportation.

The interventions will be demonstrated in several cities across Europe, starting with six Lighthouse Cities of Milan (Italy), Copenhagen (Denmark), Helsinki (Finland), Issy-les-Moulineaux (France), Zaragoza (Spain) and Trikala (Greece); and six Follower Cities including Lund (Sweden), Liberec (Czech Republic), Velenje (Slovenia), Split (Croatia), Krusevac (Serbia) and Ioannina (Greece). Each city will be implementing one or more innovative ‘interventions’ to improve urban mobility, with the aim of demonstrating how to implement the intervention and showcase their effectiveness to ‘Observer’ Cities.
