This year´s Call for Innovation will be open from the 28th of February to the 28th of April 2022 at 17:00 CET. It focuses on four City Challenges: Active Mobility, Sustainable City Logistics, Energy and Mobility, and Future Mobility.
- Active Mobility. Active mobility is regular physical activity undertaken as a means of transport. It includes travel by foot, bicycle and other vehicles which require physical effort to get moving. The expected outcome would be higher levels of use of active mobility in target demo cities.
- Future Mobility. The expected outcome would be new services and disruptive technologies which have the potential to reshape the way in which we live, work, and move within the city.
- Sustainable City Logistics. The expected outcome would include new vehicles, new procurement / purchasing models, new consolidation solutions, new hub services, new production models (e.g., so that goods are produced ‘close-to-home’), and new software solutions for optimising freight.
- Mobility and Energy. The expected outcome would be the increased use of cleaner fuelled vehicles in one or more European cities. The measures implemented should have the potential for replicating and scaling in other European contexts.
The total EIT funding allocation for this Innovation call is expected to be 14.7 million Euro (12,7 EUR Million to Innovation and 2 EUR Million to RIS Innovation). This will be divided between the four Challenge Areas and a mix of Type 1 and Type 2 projects.
To help applicants with the preparation and submission of their proposals, EIT Urban Mobility will carry out a series of events before and after the call publication to ensure open, free and fair access to the wider mobility community. More information about the Call is available here.
