EIT Urban Mobility Accelerator programme - Applications open

Be part of the EIT Urban Mobility Accelerator and get unique access to cities, mobility players and investors.

Application deadline: 09 May 2021

The EIT Urban Mobility Accelerator is a EU-funded programme implemented through partners in five European regional hubs and its aim is to take early-stage mobility start-ups to the next level. The EIT Community is looking for early-stage start-up 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.

Who should apply?

EIT Urban Mobility is looking for early-stage start-ups from EU plus EIT participating countries (incl. RIS countries) with a properly validated, clear, scalable and innovative business idea that solves a mobility-related customer problem.

Start-ups can only apply in one region per programme cycle. By default, start-ups will be geographically allocated to the Innovation Hub that matches its headquarter (well-founded exceptions are possible). All five regions will start their acceleration programme in July 2021.
