        2.3. Tasks:

        The tasks indicated here below reflect the basis of the work to be done. The contractor may break these tasks into sub-tasks, or propose additional tasks in the framework of the methodology it intends to adopt.

        Task 1: review of relevant best practices in the EU:

        a. the contractor shall examine a minimum number of 22 cases (cities) in at least 10 Member States (MS) where awareness raising policies/measures have been implemented. Priority shall be given to cases where such policies/measures have been successful, but partially successful or even unsuccessful cases can be considered if the minimum number of 22 cases cannot be attained by selecting successful cases only. Some of the selected cities should have a sustainable urban mobility plan in place. The indicative list of the selected cities will have to be included in the tenderer"s proposal, to be discussed and finalised with the Commission at the kick-off meeting. The cities shall be selected from the categories:

        i. 3 ‘Metropolises’ (>1 500 000 inhabitants); ii. 3 ‘Larger urban zones’ (between 1 000 000 and 1 500 000 inhabitants); iii. 4 ‘Large urban zones’ (between 500 000 and 1 000 000 inhabitants); iv. 6 ‘Medium urban areas’ (between 100 000 and 500 000 inhabitants); v. 6 ‘Smaller urban areas’ (<100 000 inhabitants);

        b. the contractor shall cluster the cases on the grounds of appropriate combinations of criteria such as (list not exhaustive):

        i. types of cities (metropolises, larger urban zones, large urban zones, medium urban areas, smaller urban areas); ii. geographic location and climate conditions of cities; iii. current degree of diffusion of car-free mobility habits (percentage of displacements by the different options alternative to the private car); iv. the types, quality, and financial values of the (direct or indirect) awareness-raising actions that have been deployed;

        c. the contractor shall carry out qualitative and quantitative analyses of the investments and policy measures deployed in the selected cities to promote the diffusion of car-free mobility habits, and the results obtained, with a view to identifying: i. the successful and rewarding measures, also in terms of cost/benefit ratio; ii. the degree of transferability of these measures; iii. the types of new/further awareness actions to be proposed for the different clusters of cities; iv. the pilot actions to be implemented with the subsequent task.

        Task 2: Organisation of 5 pilot awareness-raising actions:

        On the grounds of the results of the analyses at task 1c, the contractor shall conceive, organise, define the contents of, monitor and follow up 5 pilot awareness-raising actions to be deployed in 5 locations to be selected as indicated below. Such actions could consist of demonstrations/pilots of car-free mobility solutions like (list not exhaustive; in any case the nature of actions has to be coherent with the indications of the abovementioned analyses) car-pooling/sharing, measures incentivising cycling, other collective transport formulas, on-demand services for citizens. Priority to be given to actions that can generate permanent solutions.

        These actions shall be spread over at least 2 MS and in at least 3 of the following categories of cities defined in task 1a.

        Task 3: Evaluation and analysis of the 5 pilot awareness-raising actions, and development of guidelines and recommendations:

        a. evaluation and analysis of results of the actions, with a special attention to elements like replicability, transferability and the potential of generating permanent measures in the different city clusters;

        b. development of guidelines and recommendations for further action to promote alternatives to private car for the different city clusters.

        Task 4: Participation in the European Mobility Week:

        Intervention at the workshop in Brussels for national coordinators (3.4.2019) to present the progress and early findings of the project, as well as to outline, as far as possible, a first set of recommendations.
