Targeted integration, control and management of micromobility services | ZISteM project

Since October 2021, the city of Regensburg has been developing measures for the targeted control, integration and management of micromobility services. These measures are intended to increase the acceptance of mobility alternatives and boost modal shift potential.

In particular, the ZISteM project investigated the extent to which sharing e-scooters in combination with other means of transport can be an effective and environmentally friendly mobility solution.

The ZISteM project was funded by the Federal Ministry for Digital and Transport Affairs.

Project volume: 1,137,428 euros with a funding share of 56% by the ministry

Project duration: 10/2021 - 06/2024.

Project coordinator: Siemens AG, Munich

REgrouping MOBILIty clusters to develop Skills and Exchange | REMOBILISE

The REMOBILISE activities focused on the topic of safe and sustainable mobility in cities. By developing new skills, innovative services, competitive networks and resource-efficient solutions, the clusters supported the expansion of European ecosystems and cities, in particular by increasing the competitiveness of European SMEs.

The REMOBILISE project had the following 4 main objectives:

  • To foster collaboration, networking and learning among the cluster organizations and their members with a view to professionalizing specialized and tailor-made support services for SMEs.
  • Support the cluster organizations and their members in acquiring the necessary skills and in developing and implementing new solutions in terms of smart and sustainable mobility.
  • Implementation of the ClusterXchange mobility program
  • Outreach and awareness-raising activities

REMOBILISE (REgrouping MOBILIty clusters to develop Skills and Exchange) was a 24-month project with the aim of strengthening cluster management expertise while building strategic links between clusters, ecosystems and cities across Europe in the field of mobility.
The REMOBILISE consortium consisted of five European clusters with complementary skills, expertise and experience at both an organizational and regional level. The Mobility & Logistics cluster, based at TechBase Regensburg, was part of the international consortium.

The REMOBILISE project was funded by the EU's COSME program.

The project duration was February 2022 to January 2024.

Replication of innovative concepts for peri-urban, rural or inner-city mobility | EU Projekt RECIPROCITY

The Cluster Mobility & Logistics led the European mobility project RECIPROCITY. The name of the project stands for "Replication of innovative concepts for peri-urban, rural or inner-city mobility". The aim of the project was to identify innovative mobility concepts for rural, inner-city and peri-urban areas and to replicate them elsewhere. The cluster managed the activities of the consortium of ten partners from all over Europe. The project was funded with around 1.5 million euros as part of the European Union's "Horizon 2020" program. The official project start date was 01.02.2021. The duration of the project was 32 months.

Focal points

  • Climate-resilient and connected, multimodal locations for smart and clean mobility Our vision for European cities
  • Four-stage replication approach Identify, Learn, Accelerate and Share - the RECIPROCITY methodology
  • +70 innovative mobility solutions identified and supported in implementation during the project
  • + 60 cities across Europe, with different sizes and mobility demands, actively involved in the project

In 19 European cities and municipalities, innovative mobility solutions were supported in their initiation and implementation to address the challenges of urbanization, climate change and digitalization - megatrends that make a rethinking of mobility inevitable.

During the RECIPROCITY project, areas that differ in size, location, degree of urbanization and mobility needs were equipped with tools, knowledge and contacts to accelerate the development process of innovative mobility solutions. This included workshops and webinars as well as matchmaking events, new partnerships and local exchange through mobility missions to strengthen networking and knowledge sharing as well as the " information and communication platform ARRIVAL (incl. matchmaking function). Successful examples should then be imitated in other partner regions in order to make innovative mobility solutions quickly and easily accessible to a larger group of cities and municipalities.

Here you can find the most important results

Generating innovation | Interreg EU project CHAIN REACTIONS

The Interreg project CHAIN REACTIONS addressed the challenge for industrial regions that do not benefit from large innovation activities of leading companies. Therefore, SMEs were supported in overcoming capacity bottlenecks for innovation. Regional ecosystems were strengthened with specialist knowledge that helped companies to overcome obstacles and generate sustainable growth through innovation in the value chain.

A total of 11 project partners from 8 different European countries worked together. The focus was on the key sectors: advanced manufacturing technologies, ICT and electronics, energy and environment, health and bioeconomy in line with their S3 priorities (Smart Specialization Strategies).

In the pilot phase, we wanted to analyze selected industrial sectors and their most important subsectors and implement the models and instruments developed. Practical tools were developed (e.g. maturity models) to measure the innovation potential and innovation capacity of a region. Triple helix alliances were established for innovation and growth and expansion of the value chain, accompanied by training and practical application. Finally, transnational S3 implementation and the emergence of new value chains took place by creating transnational spaces for cross-sectoral cooperation in the selected sectors.

Regrouping European Clusters in a Partnership of Excellence for Mobility | EU Projekt RECiPE4Mobility

The project partners in the RECiPE4Mobility (Regrouping European Clusters in a Partnership of Excellence for Mobility) project have set themselves the goal of strengthening the excellence of European cluster management and enabling strategic connections between clusters and specialized ecosystems.

RECiPE4Mobility was a transnational cluster partnership selected under the European Cluster Excellence Program of the European Commission as part of the European Strategic Cluster Partnerships for Excellence (ESCP-4x). The ESCP-4x are supported by funding from the COSME programme to facilitate networking and learning between clusters and to achieve the professionalization of specialized support services for small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs).

The project partners have jointly decided to strengthen their management skills, offer professional services to their respective ecosystems and create cross-sector European value chains in the mobility sector. Particular attention was paid to SMEs. The partnership focused its activities on the topic of safe and sustainable urban mobility: improving cluster management to support SMEs, developing comprehensive strategies at both cluster and partnership level and organizing twinning, networking and learning activities. In addition, there was also greater cooperation in other areas and the "RECiPE4Mobility ClusterXchange" program was established.
