Towards a new mobility era

Our vision

The continuous expansion of cities and the evolution of public transport are posing new challenges to face. Harmony’s vision is to enable metropolitan area authorities to lead a sustainable transition to a low-carbon new mobility era. This will be possible thanks to its harmonised spatial and multimodal transport planning tools modelling the changing transport sector and spatial organisation.

Harmony is a European project funded by the European Commission within the programme Horizon 2020. It also cooperates with CIVITAS, a network of European cities committed to testing and implementing urban transport solutions for a more sustainable mobility.

Our objectives

HARMONY will achieve 9 objectives:

1 New mobility services, concepts and technologies for people and freight for urban, suburban and regional transport.
2Co-creation labs to identify preferences for people and freight mobility and spatial solutions.
3Integrate automated vehicles and drones with traditional transport modes and collect data from citizens and freight operators.
4Integration of transport data with social, economic and environmental data.
5New spatial and transport planning model suite (MS).
6Application of the model suite to support metropolitan planners and decision-makers.
7Link the model suite to EU-wide tranport models.
8 Recommendations to update spatial and transport strategies and Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans (SUMPs).
9Dissemination of Harmony’s solutions.

Harmony’s objectives will be validated on six EU cities and regions on TEN-T corridors.
