Education Development Officer – Capacity Building for Higher Education

Our Academy is a collaborative arena for lifelong learning, helping to build critical capabilities for innovation and transformation. We are training the next generation of urban mobility practitioners, needed by the urban mobility ecosystem of the future.

Within the Academy, there are three main areas: the Master School, the Doctoral Training Network and the Competence Hub.

In addition, the EIT Urban Mobility Academy is involved in a number of education initiatives in cooperation with the other 7 EIT Knowledge Innovation Communities, EIT KICs, such as EIT Food, EIT Health, EIT Climate, etc. The Education Programme Manager will primarily be dedicated to these, so called, Cross-KIC education activities, and in particular the HEI Initiative.

The HEI Initiative – Innovation Capacity Building for Higher Education is a pan-European Cross-KIC project aimed at creating systemic impact in higher education at the institutional level, by supporting Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) to increase their innovation and entrepreneurial capacity and better integrate into and engage with innovation ecosystems. For the pilot call see https://www.eit-hei.eu/.

EIT Urban Mobility is looking for an Education Development Officer primarily to support the EIT Urban Mobility part of the HEI Initiative project pilot.

The role of the Education Development Officer combines (1) management of complex multi-partner projects involving different HEIs around Europe with (2) development activities to support the project partners, as well as EIT Urban Mobility Academy in identifying new partners, beneficiaries and/or collaborators. S/he will hold responsibilities covering the development, implementation, delivery, and promotion/dissemination of successful education/training programmes in the area of education innovation and entrepreneurship. S/he will thereby be in charge of following up the HEI Initiative pilot on behalf of EIT Urban Mobility as well as leveraging this initiative to support the development of the Academy.
