Call for independent Supervisory Board members for EIT Urban Mobility

Introduction

EIT Urban Mobility is a Knowledge and Innovation Community created by the European Institute of Technology (EIT) with the mission to accelerate the transition towards sustainable mobility for more liveable cities – “Moving people, connecting communities, serving businesses and re-imaging public spaces”.
We bring together key players across the whole value chain of mobility to create end to end solutions. We facilitate collaboration between cities, industry, academia, research and innovation to solve the most pressing mobility challenges of cities with a close and integrated citizen-centric approach. EIT Innovation Communities are dynamic and creative partnerships that harness European innovation and entrepreneurship to find solutions to major societal challenges in areas with high innovation potential and strengthen European competitiveness.

Governance structure

EIT Urban Mobility is governed through two legal entities, the EIT Urban Mobility Association and the KIC Legal Entity (LE), a limited liability company. The Association is the sole shareholder of the KIC LE with the Managing Board as its governing body.

The association’s General Assembly (GA) is the highest decision-making body of the Association in which all core partners with voting rights meet and make strategic decisions. Its management body is the Managing Board of the Association. With respect to the KIC LE, it is governed by the Supervisory Board (SB), who holds no executive powers as they are delegated to the CEO and its Management Team (MT), as its main operational body.

The operation is managed by the headquarters in Barcelona (Spain) and five so-called Innovation Hubs in Copenhagen (Denmark), Prague (Czech Republic), Munich (Germany), Barcelona (Spain) and Amsterdam (the Netherlands). EIT Urban Mobility is governed through two legal entities, the Association and the KIC LE, a limited liability company owned by the Association.

Request for proposals: Developing and Implementing the EIT Campus learning pathways integrating courses from different KICs

EIT Urban Mobility is part of the Strategic Education Cluster, a EIT Community pan European project that represents an unprecedented endeavour in the EIT Education Ecosystem to integrate, systematise and leverage education activities from different KICs, create joint offerings and open new opportunities for raising EIT’s profile and for market penetration. Among other things, the Cluster hopes to further connect all KICs’ education offer to the current and future needs of the labour market.

In the context of the Strategic Education Cluster, EIT Urban Mobility is working with other EIT KICs, which combined comprise a network of over 100 universities alongside other key education and non-education players, to develop the EIT Campus. The EIT Campusaims at bringing together the KICs’ education offer into one single platform. While the EIT Campus act as an online shopping window by gathering the hundreds of courses offered by the involved KICs into one single platform, the courses remain hosted on each individual KIC’s learning platform (which range from market leader platforms such as FutureLearn and Coursera, to the KIC´s own Moodle platforms). This means that the EIT Campus is expected to increase traffic to the KICs’ education sites and courses by gathering all the educational offer of the KICs into an attractive platform with a recognisable brand that can – in the near future – open up new markets to otherwise rather topic-specific KICs.

As part of our journey to turn the EIT Campus from a pilot to a fully-fledged product, we are looking for a vendor that can help explore and design a framework that will allow us to bring individual courses on the EIT Campus into learning pathways. Creating learning pathways that will include courses from different KICs and learning providers is key to the EIT Campus adding value to our partners and connecting with the skill demanded in the labour market.

To apply, please send the completed and signed Tender´s Submission and Declaration Form.

Deadline for submissions: 30 September 2023 16:00hs (CET)
