IFP-research is a partner in the REALLOCATE consortium.
The REALLOCATE project aims to reduce transport emissions in European cities by 55% by 2030 and 90% by 2050 through sustainable urban mobility solutions. The project will empower 10 twinned Mission Cities to develop and deploy zero-emission, shared, inclusive, active and human-centred mobility interventions. Pilots in 15 urban and periurban unsafe areas will demonstrate innovative urban space management and reallocation strategies for sustainable modes. Solutions include innovative urban design, behavioural nudging, and smart technological and data-driven solutions. The project’s impact will be increased by engaging 10 twinned Mission Cities (Gothenburg-Tampere, Heidelberg-Utrecht, Lyon-Warsaw, Budapest-Zagreb, Barcelona-Bologna) in capacity building activities and providing them with replication packages and guidelines.
UNLEASHING THE POTENTIAL OF PUBLIC TRANSPORT IN EUROPE
UPPER aims at spearheading a Public Transport revolution that will strengthen the role of PT as the flagship of sustainability and innovation of mobility in cities, leading the transition towards a zero emission mobility which will become the cornerstone of climate neutrality by 2030, in line with the goal of Cities Mission and the priorities of the Green Deal. UPPER will put the Public Transport at the centre of the mobility ecosystem and will implement a combination of 84 push and pull measures, acting on the 5 innovation axes that condition user’s choices: mindset and culture, urban mobility planning, mobility services ecosystem, road network management and democratic governance. These measures will act in 4 different timescales (from shorter to longer-term): communication, operations, infrastructure and urban fabric. The UPPER measures will be supported by the UPPER Toolkit (U-TWIN, U-SIM, U-NEED, U-GOV, U-KNOW, U-TRANSFER and U-SUMP), 7 IT tools combining social and technological innovation that will be communication, operations, infrastructure and urban fabric. demonstrated within the measures in the 5+5 UPPER living labs and twinning sites, with the overall target of increasing the use of public transport by >30% and the user satisfaction by >25%, leaving nobody behind in the process. This integrated and holistic approach will ease the cooperation among authorities and operators, offer a physical and digital environment to test the measures, update the existing SUMPs, optimise the PT offer in line with user needs and patterns, involve the users in the overall mobility decision chain, trigger the behavioural change in favour of Public Transport and achieve an attractive, efficient, reliable, safe, inclusive and affordable Public Transport system in line with the concept of Mobility as a Right (MaaR).
IFP-research is the knowledge center set up by IFP to represent the IFP mission in projects related to walking and in international collaborative projects where walking is a relevant part. As a Brussels based non-profit organization (vzw/asbl, reg# 0789832002) it will coordinate the efforts for – amongst others – the Horizon Europe projects and build further upon the history of IFP as partner in earlier projects.
With its access to a broad network of experts through the IFP member organization and the IFP network, IFP-research can tap both in the general knowledge about pedestrians and walking, and in the local specific knowledge in countries within and outside the EU.
Multi-modal Optimisation of Road-space in Europe
What is MORE?
Corridor roads are under pressure. As the population and economy grow, mobility levels increase. Meanwhile, the demand for transport becomes increasingly diverse. These factors put the reliability of the network at risk both for passengers and freight, and call for a more efficient use of road space.
MORE developed design concepts that encourage street activity and reduce traffic dominance by considering the needs of all road users.
MORE explored experimental options such as flexible use of kerb space and dynamic allocation of road space to accommodate different functions.
MORE had 18 partners from across Europe that bring a wide range of expertise and perspectives.

Living Streets Aotearoa, our New Zealand member, has a project aimed at sensitizing vehicle drivers not to park on the sidewalk. Their approach with a friendly and clear “Yellow Feet” flyer might be inspirational for other organizations.
