Smart and green mobility


The large-scale, European research project MetaCCAZE focuses on the use of smart and green partial mobility and logistics. The aim is to find new and useful solutions that are also financially viable.

In the field of transport and transit, smart, technological solutions are constantly being developed.

In practice, making these solutions cost-effective and profitable remains a challenge. The MetaCCAZE team focuses on developing and testing six different use cases for smart and clean mobility innovations for ten European cities.

The innovations target two aspects:

  • Passenger and freight transport: public transport, minibuses on demand, shared bikes and scooters, parcel delivery and other deliveries, etc.
  • Related infrastructure: mobility and logistics hubs, traffic management centres, charging infrastructure.


Each city has its own dynamics, structure and logistical challenges. For a broad potential for success in Europe, the various solutions will be trialled in different urban environments. Initially in Amsterdam, Munich, Limassol (Cyprus) and Tampere, Finland. Successful technologies and activities will then be further developed and field-tested in six other cities and regions: Greece’s Athens, Krakow in Poland, the island of Gozo near Malta, Milan in Italy, Hungary’s Miskolc and the Paris region. In each city, research is being carried out on how the technologies best meet the needs of residents, businesses and visitors.

Supporting tools

Developing services and designing infrastructure is not enough to optimise cities and design mobility in the longer term. MetaCCAZE explicitly also addresses the development of toolkits, which support the investigated solutions in the best possible way. Think of a toolkit offering insights into the use of the different services and connecting systems for optimal infrastructure management. In addition, knowledge-sharing tools will be developed via interactive training sessions and cities and regions will be provided with ready-to-use advice and policy documents. This creates a total package of services, infrastructure and underlying instruments to design and ensure sustainable mobility in the future.

MICD contributes to this project with knowledge and experience in setting up the field tests, experience with digital twins and insights into travellers’ preferences and choice of travel behaviour. Naturally, MICD is closely involved in the pilots in Amsterdam.


MetaCCAZE is a collaboration of partners from 12 European countries. In this way, this ambitious project aligns with several European objectives, including the ‘Green Deal‘ and the mission for ‘Climate neutral and smart cities’.
