EIT Urban Mobility Scale-up programme has selected its 13 participating start-ups

Out of 100 applications, the Scale-up Programme has identified the 13 most promising start-ups with solutions for sustainable urban mobility. These companies will now take part in one of the two programme paths. 

Path A will focus on providing visibility. Path B is oriented towards the performance of a pilot within a European city which allows the start-up to showcase their solution in a real environment, in addition to the exposure benefits. Moreover, the programme will help all the selected start-ups to boost their business to the next level by supporting them in finding funding and partnerships through attendance at major European events, giving them visibility to potential investors and bringing them closer to implementing their solutions.

  • Tirn Technology (Slovakia) – Challenge 14, raised by TUSGSAL: Test an innovative solution into a sample of TUGSAL’s electric vehicle to provide insights into the state-of-charge of the buses.

The Scale-up Programme will be a gateway for participant companies to make themselves known to potential investors, customers and partners by participating in key urban mobility events in Europe, such as the Future Mobility event in Berlin, Disraptor in Prague, and the Tomorrow Mobility World Congress, part of the Smart City Expo World Congress (SCEWC22), taking place in Barcelona.

In addition, the Scale-up Programme participants will receive support services worth more than EUR 25.000 provided by the programme partners. The Scale-up Programme is financed by EIT Urban Mobility and led by CARNET, with the collaboration of PowerHub, Fraunhofer Society for the Advancement of Applied Research, UnternehmerTUM, Technische Universität Braunschweig, Niedersächsisches Forschungszentrum Fahrzeugtechnik (NFF), Digital Hub Logistics Hamburg and the City of Hamburg, Xpreneurs, UnternehmerTUM Digital Hub Mobility.
