AMIGOS VISION IN ACTION
Commencing in June 2023, AMIGOS is a 4-year Innovation Action, backed with 9.1 million euros from the EU’s Horizon Europe program. AMIGOS, short for Active Mobility Innovations for Green and Safe Solutions, involves 28 partners from 16 European countries.
AMIGOS embraces a multifaceted approach with 7 key pillars to tackle urban mobility challenges and promote sustainability.
1. Sustainable Mobility
The development of sustainable urban active mobility solutions through innovative inclusive co-creation methods.
2. Digital Twins
The use of 3 comprehensive large scale digital twin models for solution identification and impact evaluation.
3. Big Data platform
The implementation of a Big Data platform for comprehensive analytics and insights, driving innovation and informed decision-making.
4. Mobility Solutions
The reduction of traffic, increase in public transport usage and active mobility through innovative policies and technological solutions.
5. Mobility Harmony
The improvement of the cohabitation between different mobilities through innovative policies and technological solutions.
6. Space Optimization
The strategic optimization of public spaces, promoting sustainable urban development through innovative planning.
7. Safety Enhancement
The improvement of safety through innovative policies and technological solutions.
Bases on these pillars, AMIGOS relies on (1) the collection and analysis of urban mobility data from pilot cities, an (2) art-based co-creation with urban stakeholders to better define city mobility solutions using an urban mobility toolbox, city model, and digital twins as a testbed for these solutions, before their (3) implementation and (4) evaluation for replication.
