Meet the winners of #ChallengeMyCity 2022

#ChallengeMyCity has selected seven start-ups to test their mobility solutions in Milan, Toulouse, and Madrid.

The winners will each receive around EUR 50 000 in funding from EIT Urban Mobility to implement a solution to an urban mobility challenge faced by the city and the opportunity to showcase their product in a real environment through a 6-month pilot.

Following the tests, EIT Urban Mobility will analyse their social, economic, and environmental impact, to let the city permanently adopt the solutions.

The test of these solutions allows the city to better understand how to tackle the mobility challenges it faces. In a matter of months, #ChallengeMyCity is providing each city with insights into how to improve its urban mobility, to make it more accessible and sustainable.
