Sustainable living in urban areas is high on the agenda around the world. EIT Urban Mobility has recognised this and is campaigning with local innovators who are developing solutions to the climate emergency. Concurrently, the quality of our city lifestyles and European mobility will be improved.
EIT’s Innovation Programme for 2023- 2025 is based upon the support that they have been providing throughout Europe since 2020 to strengthen our ecosystem. In 2024, the focus will be on three main areas; Sustainable City Logistics, Energy and Mobility, and Future Mobility. EIT welcome any input from others wishing to support their quest to tackle the most difficult barriers to better living and promote urban mobility.
The Mission on Climate-Neutral and Smart Cities addresses net zero targets through urban mobility improvements and is adhered to. Regarding Sustainable City Logistics, they also support the European Technology Platform – ALICE.
Aims and Challenges
By introducing innovations to the market, it is hoped that city lives will be improved. Challenges will be overcome, and commercial fluency will increase. The EIT Urban Mobility Business Plan 2023 – 2025 has identified three priority areas of mobility challenges, namely:
Sustainable City Logistics
Mobility and Energy
Participation with transport providers is encouraged with an aim to progress pan-European innovations and improve transport services and logistics. EIT also aligns with the objectives of the EU Mission on Climate-Neutral and Smart Cities, so any of the 112 cities committed to Net Zero climate neutrality by 2030 should apply. Transport and mobility are long-since recognised as negative climate influencers and this can be changed.
From 17th to 20th April, online information sessions will be hosted by EIT Urban Mobility, in which registration and submissions details will be shared alongside the ideas of the innovation quest. To register for the webinar, please visit Innovations Days.
