DESTINATIONS is a four-year project, funded under the H2020 Research and Innovation Programme. It aims to develop and implement sustainable innovative mobility measures and actions with a view to offering intelligent transport solutions for tourists and residents alike in six touristic European islands. Led by Horarios do Funchal -Transportes Publicos S.A., in Portugal, the project involves insular cities in six CPMR member regions: Madeira, Gran Canaria, Malta, Crete, Tuscany (the communities of Rio Marina & Portoferraio on the small island of Elba) and Cyprus. The project also involves four following Chinese cities, Beijing, Shenzhen, Xiamen and Zhanjiankou, which, assisted by the Technical University of Beijing will promote the six islands as green tourism destinations. DESTINATIONS involves CPMR regions that are willing to implement its tools, methods and intelligent urban mobility solutions. The CPMR’s role is:
- disseminating and communicating the project’s results and achievements;
- information to its Geographical Commissions, organising conferences and workshops in a number of its member regions, including a European conference in Brussels;
- running a platform of follower cities and CPMR regions for the take-up and replication of the project’s innovative actions;
- and managing the website.
