A European initiative
to create liveable urban spaces

EIT Urban Mobility, supported by the European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT), acts to accelerate positive change on mobility to make urban spaces more liveable.


We do this by:

  • engaging cities and citizens
  • putting new mobility solutions into practice
  • reclaiming public space for public use

The EIT Urban Mobility map

Solutions to complex problems call for an integrated approach.
Our programmes mean we cover the main subjects involved in facilitating better urban mobility while our interlinked structure allows us to share the results across the organisation. Learn more about each programme
by passing over the map circles.

Our approach

We engage ​

City challenges are at the centre of everything we do. We stimulate behavioural
 change that benefits people
and cities by engaging citizens and transport users from the word go.

We engage

We connect

We bring all the key players in urban mobility together and encourage them to co-create.
We aim to align solutions with the values and needs of society and to break down the silos between the actors.

We connect

We accelerate

We accelerate

We educate
