This section aims to showcase projects that aim to achieve similar goals to SUM.
The GEMINI project “Greening European Mobility through cascading innovation initiatives”, funded by the European Commission as part of the Horizon Europe programme, was launched in June 2023. Led by the Urban Electric Mobility Initiative (UEMI) in collaboration with 43 partners, GEMINI aims to accelerate the journey towards climate neutrality by showcasing and promoting shared mobility services, active transport modes and micromobility. Over its 42-month duration, the project plans to develop sustainable business models for New Mobility Services (NMS) and launch eight new services through Mobility Living Labs (MLLs) in different mission cities. GEMINI’s vision is to create an open innovation ecosystem that integrates digital tools and a data-driven mobility intelligence platform (AI4BI) to help cities monitor and optimise shared mobility while addressing local needs and challenges.
The project focuses on validating shared mobility services to address urban challenges such as climate change, air quality and road safety. The project coordinator underlines the GEMINI Living Lab’s goal of deploying scalable and replicable mobility services across Europe, with the aim of increasing the share of NMS by at least 25% compared to the project baseline. GEMINI will work with the CIVITAS initiative and the Mission Cities umbrella to develop a comprehensive policy framework to support future mobility solutions.
