U·MOB LIFE is a European project funded by the European Commission under the LIFE Programme. It is aimed at the creation of a university network to facilitate the exchange and transfer of knowledge about sustainable mobility best practices among European universities. This network will serve as a tool towards the reduction of CO2 emissions thanks to an improved mobility of the university community.
