TIDE project

Transport Innovation Deployment for Europe (TIDE)

TIDE enhances the broad transfer and take-up of 15 innovative urban transport and mobility measures and makes a contribution to establish them as mainstream measures.

TIDE focuses on 15 innovative measures in five thematic clusters: financing models and pricing measures, non-motorised transport, network and traffic management to support traveller information, electric vehicles and public transport organisation. Sustainable Urban  Mobility Plans is a horizontal topic integrated in the cluster activities.

TIDE builds further on the NICHES+ and NICHES project, and is funded by DG Research & Innovation. It runs from October 2012 to September 2015.
