Bridging the Mobility Gap for a mobilife in Northwest-Europe
Providing attractive and effective alternatives to using the private car for the ‘first and last miles’ of journeys is a key to unlocking a mobilife in Northwest Europe.
In this EU-funded Interreg IVB project, 11 organizations from 7 Northwest European countries are creating the first transnational platform for sharing and transferring innovative and sustainable approaches to meet this challenge.
We will focus on the social, economic, technological and organisational aspects of this challenge, and the best use of existing resources and infrastructure, to:
- provide and test missing links in mobility chains;
- improve public transport information, booking options and connections;
- improve the scheduling and delivery of door to door transport;
- provide mobility training for people using different modes
On this interactive platform you will find the most innovative and sustainable solutions for matching your mobilife challenges. Contribute your solution here.

The ICMA amobilife Final Conference Event: "Pursuing Perfect Journeys" took place in Genk, 13-14th March 2012 and was hosted by the City of Genk and OCMW Genk at the impressive "C-Mine" Conference Centre. For the last three years the ICMA amobilife consortium has been implementing various door-to-door mobility solutions, in order to ensure seamless mobility for different target groups. The final event aimed at synthesizing the results of the project as well as exploring the opportunities for transferring the implemented pilot actions to other North-West European cities.
Participating in the EU-funded Interreg IVB NWE mobility projects cluster "SYNAPTIC", the ICMA amobilife project did also host the SYNAPTIC Round Table on "Seamless Door-to-Door Journeys for an Ageing Population: the importance of mobility; managing demographic change". This Round Table took place on 13th March 2012 and is integral part of the ICMA Amobilife Final Event.
After the successful application for clustering their joint capacities to improve public transport systems across North West Europe, the four urban and regional mobility related INTERREG IVB NWE projects RoCK, Sintropher, BAPTS and ICMA have launched activities of the SYNAPTIC project on 8th June 2011 at the 8th BAPTS partner meeting in Liège.
SYNAPTIC stands for Synergy of New Advanced Public Transport Solutions Improving Connectivity in the NWE Region and aims at identifying priorities on future action in the field of regional and urban mobility.
At the SYNAPTIC launch the partners signed the joint SYNAPTIC Declaration, which is available for download here.
Recently, also the SYNAPTIC web presence has been launched under www.synaptic-mobility.eu.
The amobilife Training Lab is a virtual e-learning platform offering training courses for the skills development of transport service operators and people involved in making improvements to mobility and social inclusion.
The courses offered on the amobilife Training Lab will cover the four themes of the ICMA amobilife project: Connections, Economics, Skills and Technology
Registration is quick and easy, and the courses are free to take.
The amobilife Training Lab is available 24/7, so you can learn when it is best for you. You can also leave the module and return to it where you left it, so that you can better fit your learning into your life.
The ICMA team hopes that you find the amobilife Training Lab interesting and useful. If you would like to send us any comments (ICMAqueries@gmpte.com) we would like to hear from you.
In the jointly developed Transnational Competence Center the European partnership provides services and solutions covering the four mobilife themes.
