100 climate neutral cities by 2030: the role of urban mobility
The Horizon Europe framework programme introduced the concept of ‘Missions’ as a new way of directing research and innovation to address some of the major challenges the EU is currently facing. One of the five proposed Missions aims to promote and showcase 100 European cities in their systemic transformation towards climate neutrality by 2030. As transport in urban areas remains a major source of greenhouse gasses, the aim of this panel discussion is to explore how the Mission-based approach could help cities to decarbonise mobility at a faster pace and in coordination with other sectors including for example energy, buildings, food and industry.
