The goal of Viajeo PLUS is to benchmark outstanding solutions for innovative and green urban mobility in Europe, Latin America, China and Singapore and subsequently facilitate the uptake of these solutions across different cities in these regions, and Mediterranean Partner Countries (MPCs). Over a 36-month timeframe, the Viajeo PLUS consortium will engage with leading European innovative organisations and academic institutes and cooperate with cities across Europe, Latin America, China, Singapore and MPCs to facilitate the sharing of good practices and demonstration of innovative solutions. The Viajeo PLUS project will: Assess current mobility solutions and the potential uptake of different solutions for different scenarios. Through case studies, showcases and capacity building, it will gather key experts in mobility management, clean vehicle, public transport, infrastructure and city logistics, to develop executive plans for the implementation of existing solutions in a new and innovate way; Create a new web-based Virtual Best Solution book to facilitate wider uptake of solutions across more cities and regions; Organise four individual City Mobility Weeks in Europe, Latin America, China and Singapore respectively. A City Mobility Week consists of showcases, workshops and stakeholder meetings. Through interactive showcases, participants will benefit from gaining first-hand experience of innovative solutions. Participants will exchange knowledge, information and best practice experiences through various workshops and meetings; Organise fora in Istanbul to engage stakeholders in MPCs to lay the foundations for future inter-regional cooperation in research and development activities; Facilitate a twinning cities programme to allow representatives from cities to experience innovative solutions for future implementation. Together with SOLUTIONS, Viajeo PLUS will develop recommendations to the EC for future collaboration among cities and for research cooperation initiatives.

The VIAJEO project will design, demonstrate and validate an open platform which will be able to: support the transport operations, planning and a wide range of traveller information services; deliver dynamic information independent from the language to improve their provision of transport information and traveller services through integrated traffic data collection and management; deliver a solution that enables cross-modal journey planning, dynamic route guidance, effective payment access and improved personal mobility, etc.; provide standardised interfaces to connect a variety of entities needed for the mobility services The open platform will facilitate the integration of components for data management allowing integration of European and local components as most convenient in Athens, Sao Paulo, Beijing and Shanghai. The demonstration cities in Europe, China and Brazil have been carefully chosen to ensure that they have a reputation as national role models, allowing the results of successful demonstrations to be extended to other cities in these countries and also potentially to other countries in the respective continents. The scientific and technical objectives of the project are: (1) Design of an open platform with interfaces to a wide range of mobility services (2) Implementation of the open platform in Europe, and in the emerging Economies, i.e. China and Brazil. (3) Validation of the open platform (4) Assessment of social and transport impacts of the implementation and demonstration of the open platform VIAJEO will involve users, traffic managers, public authorities, transport operators, equipment manufacturers, vehicle manufacturers, service providers, application and service developers, content owners and providers, and research organisations.

STADIUM addresses the task 3.1.7 - Large event mobility management (especially in big cities) of the call FP7 SST 2008 The ultimate goal of the project is to improve the performance of transport systems made available to a wide and differentiated range of users in the framework of large events hosted by big cities, through the development of a set of guidelines and tools to implement management support systems (mainly ICT technologies), based upon past experiences of large sport events, demonstrations in South Africa, Delhi and London and best practices of ITS applications in Europe. Main impacts: Improved performance of transport systems in host cities. Evidence of capabilities to manage high concentrated transport demand through long lasting technological solutions. Promotion of EU know how. Main outputs: (1) Design of ICT applications compliant with the EU ITS Frame Architecture procedures; (2) Demonstration of viability of European ITS technologies in emerging countries; (3) a Handbook providing guidelines and solutions for selecting, designing and implementing applications for the benefit of potential large events hosting cities. 10 WPs: WP1 Management, WP2 Identification of requirements, WP 3 Handbook, WP4: Demonstrators design, WP 5a: Demonstrators implementation-South Africa; WP 5b: Demonstrators implementation-India, WP 5c: Demonstrators implementation-London, WP 6: Benchmarking and evaluation.
