The project focuses on emerging issues in mobility planning for smart and sustainable agglomerations and regions. Its main goal is to strengthen the research capacity in social sciences applied in sustainable and integrated transport and mobility planning in the engaged institutions. It builds on advanced Czech-Norwegian research cooperation, exchange of experience and good praxis.
The project raises a new concept of integrated, sustainable and innovative mobility planning at the regional scale. It is innovative in Czechia, where transport planning at this level consists mainly of the coordination and support of the public transport services and investments into road networks while integrating other transport modes and mobility services are not sufficiently coordinated and harmonised. A need to approach the transport problems differently arises especially now, in the post-covid period, in the times of energy and price uncertainty and climate change.
