2013 registration of the SUMP Award is open

The European Commission's Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan (SUMP) Award was launched in 2012, and will be presented the second time in 2013. The aim of the award scheme is to encourage the adoption of SUMPs by local authorities across Europe and to reward outstanding achievements in each year’s SUMP thematic priority area. Cities are not required to have completed the entire process of developing and implementing a SUMP in order to be eligible for the award. The 2013 award focuses on the integration of economic, social, and environmental policy criteria in SUMPs. Activities regarding the ‘integration of economic, social, and environmental policy criteria’ are the focus of the award.

The competition is open to cities from the European Union and the European Economic Area (Norway, Iceland and Liechtenstein), that have initiated or completed the development of a Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan. ‘Cities’ include local and regional public authorities that have legal competence in developing and implementing sustainable urban mobility plans on their territory. The contact person for each application must be a representative from a public authority. Consultancies and transport operators are not eligible. In case of doubt, applicants will be contacted to provide proof of their legal status as a local or regional public authority. Applications must be completed in standard, comprehensible English and submitted by 1 November 2013.
