Networking for Urban Vitality (NUVit) | Integrating Infrastructure and Spatial Planning
A major challenge is to realize more consistency in transport systems across different spatial scales – local, regional and (inter)national – and different modalities and to combine investments in multimodal infrastructure with urban development and vitality.
The NUVit approach aims to achieve a resilient and sustainable transport network including a better integration of urban nodes into TEN-T corridors. This will optimize accessibility, liveability and vitality in these urban areas.
Therefore several European organizations have initiated this NUVit approach for long-term international cooperation and knowledge exchange on multimodal infrastructure and urban development.

Networking for Urban Vitality (NUVit) is an initiative which originates from the ‘Transport Infrastructure Integrated with Land Use’ (TIILUP) roadmap (FEHRL), the Rotterdam2Ruhr scoping study (Rijkswaterstaat, the Netherlands) and the Healthy Urbanization publication (Ministry of Infrastructure & the Environment, the Netherlands). NUVit is guided by an international core group of experts (infra-providers, authorities, knowledge institutes and consultants – see appendix) and is a platform in which knowledge concerning NUVit (Mobility, infrastructure networks, liveability and land use) is exchanged and embedded in practice.
