The challenge

The continuous expansion of cities and the evolution of public transport are posing new challenges to face. Harmony’s vision is to enable metropolitan area authorities to lead a sustainable transition to a low-carbon new mobility era. This will be possible thanks to its harmonised spatial and multimodal transport planning tools modelling the changing transport sector and spatial organisation.

The solution

Harmony is a European project funded by the European Commission within the programme Horizon 2020. It also cooperates with CIVITAS, a network of European cities committed to testing and implementing urban transport solutions for a more sustainable mobility. HARMONY envisages developing a new generation of harmonised spatial and multimodal transport planning tools which comprehensively model the dynamics of the changing transport sector and spatial organisation, enabling metropolitan area authorities to lead the transition to a low carbon new mobility era in a sustainable manner. The HARMONY model suite (MS) integrates:
1. Strategic models (land-use, economic growth),
2. Tactical models (people/freight activities), 
3. Operational models (multimodal land- and air-network) allowing for multi-scale spatial and transport planning.

New mobility services, concepts and technologies for people and freight for urban, suburban and regional transport

Co-creation labs to identify preferences for people and freight mobility and spatial solutions

Integrate automated vehicles and drones with traditional transport modes and collect data from citizens and freight operators

Integration of transport data with social, economic and environmental data

New spatial and transport planning model suite (MS)

Application of the model suite to support metropolitan planners and decision-makers

Link the model suite to EU-wide transport models

Recommendations to update spatial and transport strategies and Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans (SUMPs)
