Goods, waste, and service trips in urban areas impose negative traffic and environmental impacts, and there is a need for cost-effective and sustainable solutions. The CityLab objective is to develop knowledge and solutions that result in up-scaling and roll-out of strategies, measures and tools for emission-free city logistics in urban centres by 2030.

The SUCCESS project will examine two strategies to identify opportunities for growth, jobs and innovation in the European fisheries and aquaculture sectors:
· Introducing different kinds of technical and organizational innovations
· Motivate removal of competitiveness barriers (policies and regulations) in different steps of the supply chain.
For both strategies, developments on world markets as well as consumer preferences and awareness will be analysed.
