This monograph presents the conceptual reflections on possible
alternatives within the Civitas Elan project, its successful concrete
solutions, as well as obstacles to the introduction of changes. The project
is a consortium of five cities (Brno, Ghent, Ljubljana, Porto, and Zagreb)
that includes 39 partners from seven European countries.
A part of our reflections and solutions is presented in this monograph. The
first part of the book includes texts dealing with the social circumstances
of changing urban mobility and consequently with changing urban traffic
systems and traffic policies. The second part presents some of the most
successful methodological solutions that were used to analyze the changing
and ever new forms of mobility. In the more extensive third part the
articles present new techniques, technologies, solutions, approaches and
products, which contribute to more efficient and environmentally friendlier
city traffic. The monograph concludes with the reflections of the project’s
scientific coordinator about the cooperation in the RTD part of the project.
It contains proposals which we hope will contribute to a better
understanding of the project’s achievements and stimulate further
discussions on the objectives of the Civitas Initiative.
