The preparation of the open call has started its second phase with the publication of the call for proposals on the 10th of August. The call will close on September the 25th and then the phase 3 will start, with the evaluation of the proposals. This is an important milestone for the project since it will allow for the development of services to improve the mobility experience of people with reduced mobility and other vulnerable groups, which is one of the pillars of the project. Moreover, the fact that the solutions will be open-source is an important innovation of this call, allowing for additional benefits to the Lisbon community.
The total budget of the call is 1 million euros and it aims to improve accessibility and safety of people with reduced mobility and other vulnerable groups as well (persons with disabilities, elders, children, pregnant women, and others) by creating inclusive people-centred mobility services and to improve decision-making processes. Open-source projects contributing to a more accessible and inclusive mobility Lisbon ecosystem will be funded up to 60.000 euros each.
