EIT Urban Mobility: Main Innovation Open Call 2025

The Innovation Programme resolves mobility challenges facing European cities by bringing innovations to market. 

At EIT Urban Mobility, our mission is to accelerate change towards a sustainable mobility model for liveable urban spaces. In the current context of climate emergency, our objective is to support our community of innovators to develop solutions that help mitigate and adapt to climate change and, at the same time, improve the quality of life in our cities, create jobs and strengthen the European mobility sector.

To this end, the primary emphasis of our Innovation Programme for 2023-2025 is to radically advance commercially viable solutions/services/products that support this mission and these goals.

Since 2020, we have had a growing portfolio of projects to support agile and collaborative mobility projects across Europe covering key sectors and technologies, from autonomous vehicles to innovative electric vehicle (EV) charging infrastructure or shared mobility. For the 2025 call, we will continue to support innovative projects in two high-impact strategic sectors: urban logistics and energy transition. In addition, this year we are focusing on public transport, the backbone of mobility in cities.

We look forward to broadening our partnership and our portfolio of entrepreneurial innovation projects to build socially impactful and economically viable products, services and solutions.

Main features of the call (aim and challenges)

We support projects that are close-to-market, that can develop and test new solutions in real-life demonstrations and attain commercial viability by the end of the project. Therefore, proposals in this call should prove that the solution to be piloted has successfully reached a minimum Technology Readiness Level (TRL) of 6.

The aim for this Call is to strategically select projects that complement our existing portfolio by addressing new sectors, business models, technological advances or market demands. For this Call, three topics are addressed:

  • Urban logistics
  • Electrification of transport and alternative fuels
  • Public Transport

We also align with the objectives of the EU Mission on Climate-Neutral and Smart Cities. As such any of the 112 cities committed to Net Zero climate neutrality by 2030 are encouraged to apply. Moreover, we support active alignment with the European Technology Platform – ALICE in relation to the urban logistics topic.
