EIT Urban Mobility Accelerator

Taking your mobility start-up to the next level.

The EIT Urban Mobility Accelerator is a EU-funded program in five European regional hubs implemented through partners to take early-stage mobility start-ups to the next level. We are looking for early-stage startup-teams with business ideas that reduce congestion and increase efficiency in the transport system. With innovative approaches to make commuting faster or more enjoyable. With concepts to accelerate the transition to low- or zero-emission forms of transport – and with all other possible ideas that help to solve mobility related problems.

Hubs, Location & Partners

Start-ups can only apply in one region per programme cycle. By default, the start-ups will be geographically allocated to the hub that matches its headquarters (well-founded exceptions are possible).

The regions CENTRAL, EAST and SOUTH start their acceleration programme in July 2020, the regions NORTH and WEST will begin in January 2021.

In 2020, start-ups from regions North and West can choose the region they would like to be allocated to.
