MORE Exchange Forum Group
The MORE Exchange Forum is a platform to discuss ideas and provide feedback on the tools developed by the MORE project. The Exchange Forum will convene for the first time on 1 October 2019 in Graz, Austria.
Changing the way we view and use road space
The EU-funded MORE project is developing tools assisting cities in their road space design process. It develops design concepts that encourage street activity and reduce traffic dominance by considering the needs of all road users. The MORE Exchange Forum is a platform to discuss ideas and provide feedback on the tools developed within the project.
Members of the MORE Exchange Forum will receive frequent updates, meet regularly throughout the duration of the project and will have the opportunity to shape the MORE tools and concepts.
The MORE Exchange Forum Members will closely follow, comment on and validate the development of the tools throughout the project and will finally receive tailored guidance on how to use the tools in their own context.
Members of the MORE Exchange Forum will also serve as a valuable sounding board for specific activities in other areas of intervention of the MORE project, where user needs are identified, regulatory frameworks are studied, scenarios are developed, and road design requirements identified.
First meeting: 1st October 2019 in Graz, Austria
The first MORE Exchange Forum meeting will take place on 1 October 2019 in Graz, Austria, in conjunction with the 2019 Civitas Forum Conference. The two following MORE Exchange Forum meetings will take place in 2020 and 2021 respectively.
Representatives of local and regional authorities, commercial associations, users’ representatives and private companies from Europe can express their interest to join the MORE Exchange Forum by filling this online form.

The deadline for application to participate in the first Forum meeting is 1st September 2019.
BACKGROUND: The MORE Tools
MORE will develop four tools assisting the development of street ecosystems:
- A library with design elements to develop new options;
- A stakeholder engagement tool for the co-creation of design options, using both web-based and traditional planning tools;
- A simulation tool that will mimic user behaviour in streets and on roads, including the delivery of performance indicators;
- An appraisal tool for the assessment of design options.
The MORE tools will be tested in five European cities: Lisbon, London, Budapest, Constanta and Malmö.
