Mobility Opportunities Valuable to Everybody (MOVE)

HZ University of Applied Sciences plays an active role in knowledge topics that contribute to a more sustainable and dynamic Zeeland delta, in line with the international themes of water, energy and vitality, as befitting the DNA of the Zeeland region.

The aforementioned international themes are directly linked to living and accessibility conditions and – to a certain degree - also translate into the desired and necessary mobility for everyone, both for the residents of the Zeeland region and for visitors to the region.

The European Mobility Opportunities Valuable to Everybody project, hence forward referred to as ‘MOVE’, is an international partnership with a Zeeland character aiming at co-creating more sustainable mobility solutions in (semi) rural regions and small urban areas. The generated solutions will contribute to enhancing living and accessibility conditions in these regions. The project, which started on 1 September 2018, has a duration of 3 years and HZ University of Applied Sciences is the driving force behind this project.

The other partners in the cooperation are local authorities, private parties and knowledge institutes from Belgium, Denmark, Germany, England and the Netherlands, each of which will develop pilots in their region with their own specific problems in order to increase sustainable mobility, living conditions and accessibility, in which both directly and indirectly involved partners in co-creation will bring together (existing) developments and new sustainable mobility initiatives to come up with more feasible and practical solutions for the future.

The aim is to jointly work together towards the way the co-creation will be implemented and the underlying research, both prior to the pilots and during the pilots, will also take place as much as possible in an equivalent manner, in such a way that the partners can learn from each other as much as possible and thus experiences can also be exchanged.

Project partners MOVE
HZ University of Applied Sciences, University of Ghent, Municipality of Middelburg, Intermunicipal Association for the development of the GEwest Mechelen and surroundings, Georg-August-Universität Göttingen, Gate21, The Highlands and Islands Transport, NHS Highland, Advier, Landkreis Northeim and Zweckverband Verkehrsverbund Süd-Niedersachsen.

The Interreg VB North Sea Region Programme 2014-2020 provides these project partners with the opportunity to collaborate, making use of each other’s expertise in order to arrive at useful solutions that can also be useful examples elsewhere.

Time period
The MOVE project runs from September 2018 to February 2022. MOVE is made possible through a contribution from the North Sea Region Programme 2014-2020.
