About EIT Urban Mobility
EIT Urban Mobility is an initiative of the European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT). Since January 2019, we have been working to encourage positive changes in the way people move around cities in order to make them more liveable places.
Using our cities as living labs, our industry and university partners demonstrate how new technologies can work to solve real problems in real cities by transporting people, freight and waste in smarter ways.
Our programmes support our vision of creating more liveable urban spaces. By fostering innovation and transformation, we can improve people’s quality of life, decarbonise mobility and make Europe’s economy more competitive.
This partnership is all about inspiring and enabling the move towards more liveable urban spaces, dedicated entrepreneurial talent and competitive mobility businesses. Together we aim to build a prosperous future for our cities.
It will create an innovation community to educate and inspire mobility solutions for 21st century cities. We will avoid fragmentation by encouraging all urban mobility players to work together — with cities and citizens at its heart — and increase social inclusion and equality.
Co-funding of up to €400 million (2020-2026) from the EIT, a body of the European Union, will help support the partnerships to make this happen.
