KIC Urban Mobility

Description / Objectives

Technological innovation to tackle the urban mobilitat repte.

Urban mobility is one of the key challenges for all governments, if not the biggest challenge. The quality of life of citizens, co-existence and wellbeing all come into play. In order to find the answer together, since the end of 2018, Barcelona has been part of the Knowledge and Innovation Communities (KIC) in urban mobility, with an investment of 40 million euros from Europe.

In order to conduct this large-scale project, the MOBILus consortium was created, made up of 48 cities in 15 countries, 12 businesses and 18 universities, including the Polytechnic University of Catalonia and Seat. All the partners have worked together to propose ways in which to invest more efficiently in public resources in terms of mobility.

MOBILus is based in Ca l’Alier, in the Sant Martí district. Superblocks, reconfiguration of the bus network, increased cycling infrastructure in the city, the regulation of personal mobility vehicles in the international arena, the management of vehicle loading and unloading, or the city's work to establish regulations on shared mobility (ride sharing) all added points to Barcelona's leadership in this European consortium on technological innovation.
