We are thrilled to join forces with Green Brother, RMIT Europe, Szombathely City, and Frontira with the goal of improving urban mobility and enhance the quality of life for citizens. The world of urban mobility is on the cusp of a transformative revolution. Start-ups in this sector hold immense potential to shape the way we navigate our cities and embrace sustainable transportation options.
However, to fulfil their market potential, these start-ups face numerous challenges, including aligning innovations with city regulations and meeting the needs of citizens. That’s where TICER comes in – an innovative educational programme designed to empower start-ups and bridge the gap between entrepreneurial vision and real-world success.
The deadline for application is 31 August, 2023, on the website: https://www.ticer.city/#registration. The programme will take place from September 2023 to November 2023. It will start with a kick-off event, followed by three online training modules as well as a pitching ceremony.
In the realm of urban mobility, the ultimate clients are the citizens themselves. We recognize the critical role cities play in shaping the needs and aspirations of their inhabitants. However, aligning innovative mobility solutions with both city regulations and citizen requirements is no easy feat. TICER steps in as the bridge that connects innovators with the needs and expectations of cities and citizens alike. The programme has 3 main moduls:
- Entrepreneurial Training
- Co-creation Workshop (UX)
- City regulation Landscapes Workshop
Three Key Challenges and How TICER Addresses Them
Challenge 1 – Sustainable mobility as an alternative
How can we foster a culture of sustainable mobility in Szombathely so people become more inclined to embrace eco-friendly transportation options such as buses, bikes, scooters, or walking instead of using a car?
Challenge 2 – Demand-driven mobility design
How can we channel the needs of citizens and urban stakeholders into the mobility-related decision-making process of the city?
Challenge 3 – Data-driven synergies for mobility
As a municipality, how can we use existing and yet-unknown data to – directly and indirectly – encourage the public and economic sectors to improve traffic flow?
