InnovaCity Paris Hackathon: shape the future of urban mobility!

In cooperation with the City of Paris, this event gathers innovators, entrepreneurs, companies and cities to develop actionable solutions about the following challenge: what solutions to direct tourist flows towards more sustainable modes of transport, both for arrivals in Paris and within the city.

Participants will be gathered in working groups and will follow the Design Thinking process to develop a concept answering the challenge. At the end, each team will present their idea to a jury, who will vote on the winner. The laureate will receive one month of support to develop its idea, before pitching its solution with the winners of the other hackathons (Munich, Barcelona & Helsinki, Debrecen). The laureate wins an invitation to a major mobility event to meet European mobility key actors.

Please note that free tickets are available on demand.

InnovaCity is a European project funded by the EIT Urban Mobility, an initiative of the European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT) that has been working to encourage positive changes in the way people move around cities to make them more liveable spaces.
