The Mobility Hub of the Urban Living Lab Center is hosted by the Urban Electric Mobility Initiative. The Urban Electric Mobility Initiative (UEMI)  was launched by UN-Habitat, building on international activities in the areas of sustainable urban development, energy, mobility, and focusing on the equal access provision of urban basic services in Latin America, Asia and Africa.  and builds on a wide range of research projects.

Mobility Projects


The SOLUTIONSplus project aims to enable transformational change towards sustainable urban mobility through innovative and integrated electric mobility solutions. To deliver this objective the project will boost the availability of electric vehicles, foster the efficiency of operations and support the integration of different types of e-mobility in large urban areas and addressing user needs and local conditions in Europe, Asia, Africa and Latin America.


The EU-funded TRANS-SAFE project aims to maximise impact of these solutions by bringing road safety agencies and experts from Europe and Africa to drive policy actions. Together, they will drive forward effective approaches for road safety development. 

Future Horizon

The EU-funded FUTURE-HORIZON project studies how to best support the European Road Transport Research Advisory Council (ERTRAC), future Horizon Europe partnerships and the European Commission to identify related future research needs. Specifically, it explores opportunities for complementing strategic planning of the road transport research ecosystem in Europe, focusing on North and South America as well as Asia and Africa. The project maps road transport research strategies in established markets abroad and compare these to the European strategies. 

SCALE - Smart Charging ALignment for Europe

SCALE is a three-year project (2022-2025) co-funded by the new Horizon Europe Programme. It aims to advance smart charging infrastructure and facilitate the mass deployment of electric vehicles. The project will reduce uncertainties around the roll-out of smart charging, interoperable and V2X (Vehicle-to-Everything) solutions, whether these are technical, organizational, economic, social or policy-related, and help shape a new energy eco-system wherein the flexibility of EV batteries’ is harnessed. 

SESA - Smart Energy Solutions for Africa

Smart Energy Solutions for Africa (SESA) is a collaborative project between the European Union and nine African countries (Ghana, Kenya, Malawi, Morocco, Namibia, Nigeria, Rwanda, South Africa and Tanzania ) that aims at providing energy access technologies and business models that are easily replicable and generate local opportunities for economic development and social cohesion in Africa.

GEMINI - Greening European Mobility through cascading innovation INITIATIVES

GEMINI’s vision is to accelerate the progress towards climate neutrality by reinforcing modal shift through the demonstration and uptake of new shared mobility services, active transport modes, and micro-mobility and their integration with PT in new generation MaaS services. Drivers of this transition will be the GEMINI Mobility Living Labs (MLL) in 8 mission cities (Amsterdam, Copenhagen, Helsinki, Ljubljana, Munich, Paris, Porto and Turin), engaging local communities in the implementation of their SUMPs and the co-creation, development and adoption of promising innovative mobility solutions.

STREnGth_M - Strengthening EU Road Transport R&I

The STREnGth_M consortium will contribute significantly to the planning of research and innovation in Europe by identifying future research needs in the field of road transport, by updating and supporting the coordination of strategic research agendas and roadmaps in the field and by facilitating continuous exchange between road transport research related Horizon Europe partnerships and platforms.

eBRT2030 - European Bus Rapid Transit of 2030

Bringing together 45 partners from across the EU and beyond, eBRT2030 aims to demonstrate the applicability of a new generation of eBRT systems in different urban contexts with innovative solutions that are economically viable and enhanced with new automation and connectivity functionalities. Ultimately, the main objective is to drastically reduce emissions, pollutants and congestion, supporting the transition towards zero emission sustainable transport across Europe.
